This morning started out cold and rainy. By the time I got to the warehouse to pick up my ECW gear I was covered in puddle. Since I wrote about ECW last year, I won’t bore you except to say that it isn’t nearly as cold in the Peninsula region so the cold weather gear is not nearly as exciting this year.
Fortunately, when I looked up from my computer to go to lunch it was a gorgeous sunny day (and I have a really unfortunate sun burn to prove it!). The Cementerio in Punta Arenas is famous. It is like a smaller, more provincial, version of Recolleta in Buenos Aires. I spent a couple of hours wandering around. It is really touching how the graves of loved ones many decades deceased are still tended.
It was about this time that I started getting very sentimental and was ranking my favorite graves. When that happened, I knew beyond a shadow of a doubt that it was time to leave.
I went back into town and stumbled upon a children’s parade. All of the kids and their parents were dressed up in themed costumes. I have no idea what it was for, but it was adorable!
And so ends my day out and about town. I have finally learned where my room, the stairs, and the IT department live. Go me!
