We are in Santiago, Chile, on an 8-hour layover while we wait for
our flight to Asuncion, Paraguay.
Yesterday we boarded a Southwest flight from San Jose to LAX
just before 8:00 am. After an easy walk to the international
terminal at LAX, and a wait of about three hours, we boarded
a flight for Santiago with one stop in Lima, Peru. The flight
from LAX to Lima took eight hours. After waiting in Lima for
about 1-1/2 hours, it took three more hours to get to Santiago.
The time in Lima is two hours ahead of San Jose, and the time
in Santiago is three hours ahead. I believe the time in Asuncion
will be three hours ahead also. But I think there are more time
zones than that, and it's only three hours difference because
maybe there is no daylight savings time in South America.
What are we doing here? We will visit Mary's brother Robert
and his wife Brenda, who are missionaries with the Christian
and Missionary Alliance in a suburb just outside Asuncion.
We are very tired, so that's all for right now ...
more later ...
