Early get away to get to Santiago Airport in time for Angie to check in and lose her luggage, for Jonathan to arrive and for Pablo to meet a fellow scientist, interested in butterflies, to remove a piece of Copiapoa cinarescens containing the larva that may or may not be responsible for the destruction of Copiapoa in habitat.

Everything worked like clockwork. I watched Angie disappear through the security / immigration gate – see you in just over two weeks! Jonathan was itching to start his Chile adventure while I was keen to introduce his charger for the Microsoft Surface Pro 3 to mine – now completely flat. It was great to download my images  and to finally know what my next Stop number was. I use these numbers to organise my images – for each number I record the date and GPS co-ordinates and the cacti – other succulents – other plants of interest that were photographed here. I usually include the Stop numbers in my Diaries, so that is a catch up job to do back home.

The journey back to Olmue was nice and relaxed and we made a leg stretch stop in the Sierra de la Dormida to get Jonathan get used to the Chilean flora and see his first cactus in habitat – Trichocereus chiloensis.

Back at Olmue we helped Pablo to move his gear into the Weisser residence and then went for our last meal in Chile with Pablo – nice restaurant in town as the Hotel’s facility had closed early.

Early start tomorrow – we’re down to two in the car!
