WifiDid you know Richmond International Airport offers free WiFi service?  

Responding to widespread customer demand, Richmond International Airport began offering free wireless internet (WiFi) in early 2003, a pioneer among US airports not only for the sizable footprint of the service area in the terminal, but also for the access on a “no charge” basis.

 With wireless computer access at your fingertips in the terminal, you can reply to e-mails, check the stock market, read the day’s top stories, keep your business going or just surf the net. WiFi is available at the gate, in the restaurants, ticketing area, baggage claim, Atrium and business center. It’s easy. It’s fast. And it’s free. (from www.flyrichmond.com)

Long enough for dinner, a reasonable night’s sleep and breakfast before you arrive. Since Santiago is on Eastern Standard Time, there’s no jet lag or adjusting to a new time zone. Another advantage is that because Chile is south of the Equator, you can go there for great skiing during our summer and explore their lake region and glaciers during their summer. (more…)
