Sunday in Chile

Well I am sitting in the Lobby of the Hotel, in a little section that has a small bar ( serving only non-alchoholic drinks thanks to elections) typing away at the keyboard. I started my day with work that has to get done being that I will not have time tommorow. I spent about 2-3 hours on that. Then I decided to do a nice workout: 40 minutes on the stationary bike (ave HR 129, Max HR 144); After I went for a 3 mile run (3.16 miles to be exact, ave HR 156, max HR 173) The run was seemingly a very slow pace, but the fact wass I stopped alot since part of the run was through a sculpture park that was previously closed.

Now I am back online trying to catch up on work that seems to just creep up on me. Right now I am short one staff person at work so while I am in Chile manageing the work being done here I am also trying to finish up work that the previous occupant of the now empty position.

I read somewhere that you can tell the quality of life a population has by the amount of parks and the number of people using them. I am looking out the hotel window as I sit here working; looking at the locals playing in the park along the River. What does that say about me I wonder?

it says we suck. and whilst we're working the weekends away, my guess is our euro bank brethren aren't doing the same.

Hope you can escape to explore a bit - is that a cough I hear?

Dear job-man: Please excuse Javier from work today. :)

oh no bad water out of the tap! ;)

Actually did get to explore some yesterday. Discovered that the natural wonders in and around the city are lovely. See teh Andes wherever you look. Beautiful people too. The city itself...not so much.

Javier - it's says you're in Chile in October and it's SUMMER (or at least Spring). It's getting warmer there and only getting colder here. GO OUTSIDE!!!!! Create a memory for the winter to come.
