GPS Tracking – Bogota, Colombia to Santiago, Chile

February 7th, 2010 at 11:39 am (AST) by Jake Richter

Our Avianca flight from Bogota to Santiago was a bit bumpy right after take off, but otherwise smooth. We all caught some sleep during the four and a half hour trip. Interesting to discover was that Bogota is in Eastern Standard Time (GMT-5), while Santiago is in Atlantic Daylight time (GMT-4 less an hour for summer daylight savings since it’s summer time here in the southern hemisphere now). Bonaire and Aruba are both in Atlantic Standard Time year round.

We were met by our guide Pablo and our driver Patricio and taken to our hotel where we caught an early breakfast and then slept until noon local time. This afternoon Pablo is taking us on a three hour private tour of Santiago.

    We just saw on TV that some people discovered 5 boxes of whisky being buried in Antarctica 100 years ago by an American explorer. Can you get at least one bottle of this loot for us? Have a great trip and photos!
