Place des Armes

This is the main square in Santiago, just a few stops on the wonderful subway here, from our hotel. We are staying at the hotel Orly in Providencia.

Government House

The square in front has been blocked off by the police. The students were burning chairs yesterday at the main University as we drove in.

Cerro Santa Lucia Neptune’s Fountain

There is a beautiful park built into a hill, with great views of the city.

When we were at the top of the park, we tried the local drink, made with wheat and peaches, called mote con huesillo.

The Arts Museum

We had a wonderful dinner and wines at Astrid and Gaston. Julia had the esferia de chocolat for dessert. There was a sommeliere who suggested separate wines for our dishes.
