I'll be on a plane to Miami and then to Santiago! Yippee!!!! I can't believe it's almost here. I believe I have everything I need, but knowing my luck, I'll be scrambling at the last minute to pack it all up. Tomorrow I'm off for a quick trip to DC so I can get my hair cut for the trip. I know, I know, I tried to find someone here in Philly, but she just messed it up. I'll try to find someone again when I get back. For now, I'm going to see someone who knows my hair and will give me a good cut.
The benefit of going to DC is I'll get to give Alex the sweater I made her and take pics of her in it. It is so cute. Also, Maria will be in town visiting her boyfriend so I'll get to see her as well! I'm planning to take the train to avoid the weather that will be moving in on Saturday. This week I've been trying to finish some of my projects before my trip and find others to take with me. To save space, I am going to attempt my first pair of socks. I'm not sure how into socks I am, but it will be a compact project and something to keep me busy on a 2-hour ride to see penguins.
Oh, and let's just say I'm glad that I'm not on the current cruise around the horn. Turns out when the ship was about to leave its first port at Montevideo, it was held up 24 hours due to the Norewegian cruise ship hitting a barge and debris in the channel. Looks like the ship is bypassing the Falkland Islands to make up time. What a bummer for those folks. Keep your fingers crossed that all will go well.
I'll come back over the weekend and post the different excursions I'm planning to go on.
