Sun Shines Everywhere 750

In March, Esther Karpf, Randy Yee and their daughter Vanessa Yee toured a 1,400-mile stretch of Chile starting in Santiago and finishing in Punta Arenas on the Strait of Magellan. The photo was taken near the Southernmost section of continental land mass of South America. Highlights included Santiago, Valparaiso, the Osorno and Calbuco volcanoes, the stunning Torres Del Paine National Park, the Serrano glacier and penguins. At the conclusion of the trip, Vanessa stayed behind in Los Condes, Santiago as she is enrolled in a study abroad program at a Chilean university for the next few months.
