Yes, I know I’m in the middle of a series of posts about events that happened a month ago, but just needed to interrupt to say Happy New Year and all the very best for 2017!
I actually stayed up till midnight for only about the 4th time in my life! This was largely thanks to the 2 Aussies I got talking to up on the rooftop bar of the hostel when I took an Aussie pie and broccoli up there to eat my dinner. Nice thing was that we had a clear view across to one of the main fireworks launchpads in Santiago – the Entel Tower. And it didn’t disappoint!
And before the fireworks started, some of the Chileans who had joined us on the roof launched a lantern – seemed to be a very popular thing to do as there were heaps of them floating in the night sky above Santiago.
So goodbye 2016 – I had an incredible year. Hello 2017 – which I’m sure will be another amazing one full of adventure.
Happy New Year / Feliz Año Nuevo!
