Day 2 in Santiago
April 26, 2005

We've had gorgeous weather so far, it has been sunny and about 20 degrees everyday. We've walked around all of Santiago, and have been to all the major attractions. I'd say we've walked on averaged 10kms per day. Food is very cheap here, yesterday for lunch we both had a salad, chicken, rice, a drink, and dessert, and it came to $6. For dinner we went to a traditional Chilean restaurant and I had Pastel de Choclo which is a baked corn cake full of meat, chicken, and vegetables served in a clay pot. It was really good, and that's not just the $3 bottles of wine talking! We took the funicular to the top of Cierro San Christoval today. It's amazing how smoggy this city is. On a clear day you can see the Andes; however, we could hardly make out the city below us. Dayna's bag showed up this morning, she was quite happy to change out of her stinky clothes. The homestay we are living at is quite nice, it is very cental, and close to the metro. We leave tomorrow for Valaparaiso, which is on the coast of Chile. I have uploaded a few pictures to my gallery have a look!
