Working on research for Exploring Florida’s Botanical Wonders while in Broward County, I had the opportunity to visit Butterfly World for the first time.
After 14,000 miles and more logged on planes, buses, taxis, and vans, I’m pooped out. Patagonia was all I expected and more: I’d hike there again in a heartbeat.
Serendipity touched my sendoff to Patagonia. In the lobby, Tim Cahill was also waiting for his adventure, and I listened to his advice on Patagonia over coffee.
Our trip to Pomaire was unexpectedly redirected to a walking tour in Santiago in the historic district of Santa Lucia, followed by unplanned shopping stops
For my foodie friends, a lovely eve last night spent in a trendy restaurant district along the river. Our destination Zanzibar, offering “A World of Cuisines.”
Santa Lucia is a forested and steep hill in the middle of the city, where Santiago was founded in 1541. It is ringed with historical sites and public gardens.
