I seriously hope that we can leave by the other stairs too because I think getting down will be even worse. The steps are almost vertical behind you when you go down, so with a pack on you would be leaning forward at a very precarious angle!

Whilst in Santiago we had one practical task and one sightseeing activity planned to do. The practical was to send a package back to the UK. We figured that as we were heading back to the cold weather, I should send my panama sun hat back rather than keep carrying I around, and we had a few other bits and pieces that were no longer needed. Thankfully the queue at the post office here was rather less than it was in BsAs (if you can remember that far back) and once we had acquired a couple of boxes from a local shop, we were well on our way to ticking that off.

So having accomplished our two tasks, it is goodbye to Santiago for the third and final time.
