Viña del Mar / Santiago
The contrast from Bolivia (and weeks in Ecuador and Peru) to Chile is strong but it felt good to have some better standards again and having the best shower in more than five month… But I don’t want to assess – one better or worse – just different!
I had a fantastic time in Chile. Thanks to Andres, a Mexican friend I know from my exchange semester in Rotterdam, I not only had a place to stay but the chance to meet plenty of fantastic people (some Mexican friends visiting for two weeks and all the locals in Viña) and spend a great time on the days around New Year.
Since the Mexicans had their flight to BA at 8am and I joined their shuttle from Viña to Santiago, I had one day to discover the city center of Santiago by myself which I really liked. The smog is disgusting and strong but the streets and parks I have seen are charming and the people very friendly. But I did not have the feeling that there is so much to do for me and I was happy to have the flight to Buenos Aires in the evening…
Now I’m enjoying BA very much! Delicious food and great coffee all over…
- HAPPY NEW YEAR TO EVERYONE!
- The Chileans had a lot of fun with the fact that the Swiss guy was wearing a 4$-watch from Quito and not a fancy Swiss watch…
