With two flights back to back from Orlando to Miami and thence across South America to Santiago, Chile, I was more than a little woozy getting to registration at my first major SATW Conference.

Despite the lack of sleep, I couldn’t pass up a bus tour of the city for orientation and overview, especially since it would be a few hours before my hotel room was ready. These were among my first glimpses of Santiago, the capital of Chile.

Students were out peacefully protesting, so the presidential palace had a lot of guards ringing it, but the flag atop it indicated “the president is in”.
