this is the taken from the wall of a trendy hotel in Puerto Natales called "indigo". I like it quite much. This type of this alphabet looks like a upside-down "!". Sometimes the most simple kind of design just delivers more possibilities for you to imagine. That's the thing.

usually, when I don't have much plan about a city, I just walk around and take some photos, that's a good way to kill time too. there are more photos taken in the streets of Puerto Natales and Punta Arenas, check out photo album!

have you seen how careful a penguin can be when it tries to cross the road? check it out!

PS : I really want to play Diana Ross' "do you know where you are going to?" as the background music, but I can't make it here....

for those who don't like comedy, here comes the tragedy!  yes, if I didn't have a nice day like yesterday, I might have hung myself in the airport last night. 

Last night, I went to the airport in a van which has only one guest in it, yes, that's me! I felt myself like someone very important! Even if I paid 5,000 pesos for taxi, I might not feel as good as this! I mean, 2,000 pesos in a personal VAN?! but that's the last good thing happen in the night. 

I arrived airport about 12:30, and my flight is 3:35. so basically, there's no body around, not even LAN start to check in. so I took a nap in the airport. until 2:30, I finally saw the LAN crew out there, so I picked up my backpacks and went to check in.

I think Punta Arenas likes me! And it's not only for the penguins. Actually yesterday on the way back to the shore, I thought I might got killed by the got damn raft. I was not only so very sick, but also the waves were so strong that I thought it's going to break my neck. I had to sleep the whole afternoon to recover from the sickness, and until this morning I still can felt the pain in my neck. 

but things got different today, just when I thought I am so over CHILE for its expensive life. I had a very lucky budget saving day today!

Today is my city tour day, and Punta Arenas is not a big city so I just walked around. no sooner, I found a bus company, cost only 2,000 pesos to airport. I was planning to take a taxi because my flight is late (3 in the morning actaully) and most airport buses leave before 4 in the afternoon. so I think maybe Taxi will be a good choice. Although it takes 5,000 pesos, but it's still better than spend half day in the Airport. but now I have a better choice! 3,000 pesos saved. and it leaves 11:45 in the night. so I'll only spend 3hours waiting there. sounds OK to me.

dear all, I am now in Punta Arenas, Chile (check the map if you really want to know where it is.) and I just took a boat trip to Magallanes Island to see the Magallanes penguins this morning. Those penguins are just as cute as they should be, and I was just as boat sick as I shoule be. I think, when you have to get up at 6 in the morning to catch the boat, and spend half hour in a crowded van and another 2.5 hours on a boat which is frequently attcked by strong sea winds, waves and the smell of sea lion's shit (the worse part), everybody will get that boat sick. well... at least as far as I can see. 

I did take tons of photo, but it's a pity that I didn't bring my USB connector with me, so I can't upload them photos here. maybe when I go back to Santiago, you'll see the photos (or even video clips!).

I feel so embarrassed to talk about this here. but since seldom of you really understand English, I'll just say it. This evening I've done something very stupid. and to talk about the story, we'll have to turn back time to this afternoon.

This afternoon, I was walking to Santa Lucia, the most famous romantic scene in Santiago. and when I was still on the way to there, one guy and two girls stopped me, and started to talk to me. I don't really know what they're talking about though. it was something about poetry and education problems in Chile. after we talked for 5 or 10 minutes, they finally told me what they want. they want me to donate some money to support their actions to approve Chile's educational problems. The guy even show me his student ID of University of Chile to persue me. 

I don't really want to donate anything but they keep bugging me. and they say.. one dollar will be fine too. and so I think, well.. if one dollar can buy you off, that's quite ok though. so I said, ok one dollar. and I started to search in my bag. I have two wallets with me, one is with the cash (chilean pesos) and another is with the US dollars and credit cards. but I can't find the one with the dollars.... "HOW COME?" I think. and they are still around waiting like lions around a poor sheep, so I take out the cash wallet and gave them 1000 peso (almost 2 dollars) to pay them off.

我的特色是,事情總到最後一刻才會搞定。也因此,每次出國都打包到天亮,已經成為一種很正常的事。我常默默在心裡叫自己「Last Minute Man」,結果連臨別感言也是在最後的最後才擠出來。所以說,幾乎在最後一刻才在狀況不斷的情況下辦完簽證,也是一種報應。

再過不到一小時,我就要出發前往機場了。還有很多人還沒有吃到飯的,也只能先說聲抱歉,反正我會平安回來的,到時再約囉!感謝很多人在我昏天暗地的打包過程中,提供了無數的幫助。也讓我體會到,用嘴巴說去流浪四個月,跟實際行動比起來真是簡單多了。當背包背起來的那一刻,才知道自己有多不自量力啊!哈哈!

Anyways,親愛的朋友們,我出發了。祝我快快樂樂出門、平平安安回家啊!
