54

So my South American trip is coming to an end. To date, I have visited to 54 countries. I have 20 years to get the next 46 out of the way.

I still keep up with the news back home. Turns out there is gargantuan ice storm back in the Tdot. I text one of my neighbours asking if our powers out, trees are down, basically any reason to stay in Chile. My family aren't quick to forgive for missing holidays, and I don't care for Christmas at all.

I ended my stay here with a cooking class where I learned to make empanadas, civiche, and other local fare. I told myself going in that I wouldn't eat that much. I ended up practically carrying my giant belly while waddling back to the hostel.

Waking up the next day, I start the sad process of packing for my flight home. If anyone knows how well tetris applies to real life, its the seasoned traveller. Everything fits in perfectly, even though I have more things trinkets and do-dads then when I started.

Landing in Toronto later in the day, it feels odd when I don't have several hours of jet lag coming home. Leaving the arrivals terminal, it doesn't seem as cold as I expected it. However, I just got received news that power at my mom's house it out. Which is going to make hosting Christmas tomorrow pretty tricky.

We'll see what happens.
