The Lost Photos of Santiago...

Although Chile is not so long gone and we have been in Argentina for a total of eight hours....We did miss a few beautiful highlights of Santiago. This city took me by surpise not only for the amazingly cheap street meats and tasty egg rolls, but for its modernity and awesome hospitality. Within five minutes of sitting at a dive bar table, crappy Spanish and all, we we´re invited to a table for ¨piscolas¨ (a mixture of the famous Pisco and Coke) and lengthy conversation. Too bad we didn´t get photos of that....
