Penguin - Mambo

Travel Update

Our first flight was delayed by snow. Our second flight was delayed by snow. When we landed in Santiago, Chile (yes, the one with the earthquake), a bird hit the plane and our third flight was canceled. Our travel agent managed to get six of the group on a plane (people with mobility issues and their travel companions). The remaining 12-14 people are still stuck in Santiago. They are shaken up a bit, but fine. We expect them to be able to join us either tomorrow before we sail or the following day in our first port of Montevideo. Our luggage has not caught up with us yet, so Mom is a little restricted without her walker. Aside from that, we´ve made some friends and are having a great time.
