A New Continent

Flying cattle class from Sydney to Santiago via New Zealand is a long flight for someone with sore legs and back but as we neared the coast I moved into a vacant window seat at the very back of the plane usually reserved for staff. 

As the plane began to slowly descend an hour before landing I could just make out where the ocean met land, South America. 

I was taken aback at the unexpected view as we got closer of the snow capped Andes running across the horizon. 

All in all from Sydney to Lima, a shower and dinner I was awake for 30 hours, needless to say I fell asleep as my head hit the pillow, crossing off a new continent from my goal of visiting all seven.
