|Just hitched (2003).|
Bob and I traveled to Chile in 2008 and I was also there for four weeks in 2000, so we both feel an affinity for Chile and the Chilean people. Tears were rolling when I saw the first miner surface and hug his family. Yes, I am a total sap, I even cry at movie previews! Really though, it's nothing short of amazing at how well the rescue operations are unfolding. What an amazing example of perseverance by the miners and a commitment by the government to bring these men to the surface. As I write this, the second to last miner is coming to the surface.
Coincidentally, the mine collapse was August 5, the same day that we moved up to The Sea Ranch. It feels like we have been up here forever, so I can only imagine what it has been like for the miner, who have been trapped underground for that same amount of time. Craziness.
