Day 38: RNO --> SCL
Note: The Rules & Guidelines for the Yes Quest can be found here.
Back on Day 11, a Delta representative accidentally changed my flight from Buenos Aires to Santiago, Chile. I wasn't planning on going to Chile, but when I woke up the next morning and saw that the flight had been changed, I took it as a sign from the Universe. Also I was too lazy to deal with the ballyhoo of changing the flight. You see kids, sometimes laziness pays off because it means that you randomly end up in a foreign country.
(Side note, ballyhoo is a fantastic word.)
I am exhausted after a 24+ hours of travel that started with a 4am wake up call and ended at 10am the next day. In my bleary eyed state, I remember a someone asking me a question that I thought was highly amusing at the time. I thought to myself, "you should definitely write that down so you can write about it tomorrow" but apparently I was half asleep because I did not write it down, do not remember what the question was, or who asked me.
But, I did smuggle half a Best Buy and some pills over the border, which sounds way more sketchy than it actually was. The friend I met here had all of his backpack stolen when he was eating lunch in Peru. It was stolen off the back of his chair...that he was sitting in...and six other people were at the table. He didn't feel it as it slipped off the back of the chair and no one noticed, which makes it hard to be mad because the job was so impressive. But, the backpack had his entire life — computer, tablet, headphones — so he was suddenly rendered technologically useless. Noise cancelling headphones aren't readily available for purchase in the middle of nowhere Peru, so I was asked to bring replacements in addition to a giant bottle of Lactaid requested by another friend.
See, I told you it wasn't sketchy. It's also not particularly interesting.
Go to bed, Brooke.
