- It’s a very good travel. I felt this was a real travel, because of many years blank except few days trip to south Asia.
- I had a great impressions from Machu Picchu and Easter Island. You don’t understand Machu Picchu if you don’t go there. I had never tired to look Moais in Easter Island. I felt some spiritual things. It is very far from South America or Tahiti, and felt isolated.
- Chile is good country. I wonder it’s not so popular to visit for Japanese.
- I talked to many tourists. Some couple are traveling very long after they quit their jobs. US people comes to South America easily similar to Japanese goes to South Asia. Most of Europeans and US traveler are couples of 30’s or 40’s, Japanese travelers are young or retired people.
- Spanish language spoken countries are hard but had a very fun. They talk to me in Spanish, they don’t care I don’t understand. They keep talking, and finally I understand they wanted to say. I wanted to speak Spanish.
