communication technology at georgian bay district secondary: the future of photography

Greetings from Chile


Arrived fine. Boeing 777 is a very comfy plane. Thru Santiago International Airport customs without having my wife’s Mike’n’Ikes’ confiscated as illegal contraband. Whew! Taxi to bus station and bus the 120km to Valparaiso. Picked up by the gracious Nancy and her niece Kata. Nancy’s husband works for the Chilean Navy as a submarine communications technician. Nancy makes dolls.

Valparaiso is a city of about 1 million stuck on the side of the mountains as they tumble into the Pacific. Noisy, dirty, chaotic with mad drivers and streets where only mountain goats should go.  Beautiful. 26  celsius, cooler by the ocean. A short walkabout yesterday left us wiped. We’ll go at it again today.

See you people soon…

So much of the city is like this. Winding staircases for streets.
