Some Vacation Pictures

Here are some of our favorites, but if you just can't get enough of the Brown Family Trip to South America, check out more here.

Vina Del Mar, Chile - on the Pacific Ocean.
Too bad it was too cold to swim that day!

Still on the coast, right outside a restaurant we chose for lunch.
On the streets of Santiago with Chad, Kendra, Amber, and Jim Overlooking Santiago from a nearby hill called Cerro San Cristobal.

This shot is from a hilly park called Cerro Santa Lucia looking back on Cerro San Cristobal.Josh's "soccer group" with some executives from a local soccer team on the playing field. They were thrilled to have such a great visit.Our great hotel in Puerto Varas - our room was on the top floor all the way over to the right. Amazing views of the lake and mountains behind it!
Ready for white water rafting! We were each given a wetsuit, jacket, and helmet, and were clearly looking SNAZZY.
Strong boys after the rafting trip.

Tronador (Thunderer) Mountain, where we stopped for a visit.
Crossing the Andes Mountains by boat (and some busses) was SIMPLY incredible.
Osorno, as seen from the lake - what a great looking volcano.
More Orsorno, plus the two of us.

Boys on horses in San Carlos de Bariloche, Argentina.
Me and Muneca! (In Middle Earth)
SUCH amazing countryside.
From the roof of our hotel (which was actually called the Edelweiss, believe it or not) in San Carlos de Bariloche
Now for some Buenos Aires...
Here is the Capital building (didn't know Josh was taking this picture)
A crazy big cemetary with rows upon rows of elaborate crypts. This place continues to be one of the most exclusive "residences" in town. Evita was buried there, but her husband, the actual politician, didn't make the cut.
Upscale Puerto Maderas, one of our favorite neighborhoods. Special perks in this area included our favorite ice cream shop as well as the best steak restaurant we've ever been to. MMM...
Beautiful Plaza San Martin in B. A.
