Big day for some local kids

New Zealand offers a limited number of one-year working visas for young Uruguayans, and several of our son’s friends jumped at the opportunity. One left in January, the rest today. Seeing people off at the airport here is a big deal. There were many, many people inside seeing off travelers.

Santi (center front) arrived in a sullen mood…

…but, being Santi, that couldn’t last too long.

The three in the middle in back, Matilde, Mauro (twin brother Rodrigo the one already in NZ), and Diego are the ones taking off. The boys have been like family much of the last two and half years. We’ll miss them.

¡Que tengan un buen viage y muy buena suerte!
