What a remarkable trip!  The history and culture of Santiago; an all-day crossing of the Andes alternating 5 bus trips and 4 boat crossings to reach beautiful Bariloche; the tango and La Boca in Buenos Aires; the indescribable Iguassu Falls; and finally spectacular Rio de Janeiro with its iconic beaches and mountains.  Especially endearing was the visit to La Conception School, deep in the heart of the Parana Delta, near Buenos Aires.  The children were waiting for us with welcoming banners, and then took us by hand to see their classrooms and spend time drawing pictures for each other and talking (a lot of sign language was used).

Because the Peyehue volcano, north of Santiago, has been erupting and spewing ash since early June, some of the roads and airports in your itinerary have been closed.  Be patient and flexible as your Program Director makes alternate travel plans where necessary. Our PD, Vicky, was amazing and everything went smoothly for us.
