Getting Business Done - Mi Amor
Track: Wazing around (Cissy) - Jurgen on diplomatic route (working day)
Apart from 3 kisses to greet one each other, Dutch people might come across a bit 'reserved' in daily contacts. Not here in Chile. Right away you are 'Mi Amor', my Love, for street vendors selling you the booklet 'Road Law of Chile', taxi drivers and waiters in restaurants...
Key is to just smile and get down to business. Getting things done. Like ensuring the tires are all on 37 psi air pressure. All tires on right pressure - time to celebrate that with some tire shaped food.
What was for dinner? Well... Japanse Car so Sushi it is!
Day in key statistics
37 psi. That's air pressure of our tires (which i will try to remember)
80% De-Re-Wazed. Of course i managed to miss a turn on the inner-city highway. So Waze had to work hard, recalculating, while i was enjoying cruising all through town. Tunnels, fly-overs, nice road along the river; Santiago de Chile is a pleasant city to drive in, and live in - at it's first sights that is.
605 times Reverse-Forward maneuvering to get la Panda finally perfectly Reversed Parked in a tight parking spot
Fun Local Fact
Apart from 3 kisses to greet one each other, Dutch people might come across a bit 'reserved' in daily contacts. In Lima you can get an ego boost to go to the Inca-market, where you are called 'Linda' (Beautiful), 'Princesa', 'Reinita' (Queen).
Not here in Chile.
Right away you are 'Mi Amor', my Love, for street vendors selling you the booklet 'Road Law of Chile', taxi drivers and waiters in restaurants... I found it rather funny, as it's done in a charming way.
Highlights of the day:
La Panda is back 'home' in the hotel
Again a most lovely summer day!
Mi Amor come 'home' at the hotel with good vibes - he got a lot of good business done during the day.
Time for winding down with a chilled Chilean beer & southern Hemisphere catching up with the Northern Hemisphere e.g. talking nonsense with Leen in USA.
Nice dinner with Catelijne, Jurgen's colleague based in Panama - good reason for Sushi! ; P
