Today was a great day that began with sleeping in, lunch/reading on the beach, then a friend and I met up with some other peeps from Mexico that I know (different ones than previously posted about) to go to Con Con.
Con Con is a little town just up the road from Viña del Mar. It's a 20 minute bus ride, and right before you actually get into Con Con you hop off the bus to hike up to the sand dunes (los dunes).
Lucky me, my friends had a sandboard and a sandsled! You just strap in, shut your mouth, squint, and head down the hill. On my first try I was laughing so hard that I ate a mouthful of sand that was blown into my face! I didn't care though, this was way too much fun!
After the sand dunes we actually went into Con Con and stopped at a restaurant that is known for its empanadas. I got a cheese and mushroom empanada that was to die for! Empanadas are certainly going to be something that I will miss when I come back to the States. So I plan on enjoying every single one I get while I am here!
Hope all is well in the States! Happy Labor Day weekend :)
