We played tourista today, spending some more time wandering around Santiago. There are an abundance of parks and squares scattered throughout the city, one just a few minutes walk from our hotel is Santa Lucia. Paths wind up the rocky hill right in the middle of town. At the top, a view over the city in all directions.
The city at the base of the Andes mountains. A really big city and spread out as well. With the exception of the mountains, this could be the view in almost all directions.
After walking through the market district, and seeing all the outside, we ventured into a beautiful cathedral. Iglesia Cathedral de Santiago.
Early, early tomorrow morning we catch our ride to Punta Arenas for the next step in our journey.
