Guess what I won last week . . . and where would you go?
I entered a LAN Airlines contest on Facebook and found out on Wednesday that I didn't win the first prize of two round trip airfares anywhere in South America that LAN flies, but I did win second prize, which is one round trip airfare, good through June 2013. It just goes to show that real people win these contests and you can't win if you don't enter!
My son has a month off from college from mid-December to mid-January. I've been to Chile (Santiago, Valparaiso and San Pedro de Atacama) and Mendoza, but my son hasn't been south of Mexico before. He's fluent in Spanish due to our great language immersion schools, so traveling will be easy.
My question is where would you go if you had a month to travel in South America at that time of year? I want to see and photograph a lot of wildlife and my son doesn't like it when the weather is too hot. I'm leaning away from Brazil because they speak Portuguese.
