Day 62: Final destination (421 kms)

The final border crossing of the trip was ludicrous. We waited in a line of hundreds while a single Chilean immigration official stamped passports. Three and a half hours later we entered Chile, re-crossed the Magellan Straight and headed for Punta Arenas. We ate supper and watched the U de Chile soccer team play and win a big match. People poured out into the streets to celebrate.

As of this evening the riding is finished, and the trip feels complete. There is a feeling of satisfaction, and anticipation to return home. We'll have New Year's here and maybe poke around town a little, but the main focus will be ensuring the bikes are properly taken care of before we leave the continent.

What a trip!
