Arrived in Santiago before we left Aukland! We got a second chance at our Wednesday afternoon, a la Groundhog Day.
After a sleepless 10 hour flight we touched down and hopped into a shuttle bus which dropped us off at our hotel, Recidencial Londres, which made us feel right at home. It was a magnificent building at least 150 years old with super friendly staff who helped us out when our Spanish wasn´t quite up to scratch.
We managed a great day snowboarding at El Colorado in the stunning Andes, and did a LOT of walking around museums and up steep hills to little viewpoints over the city.
Santiago is a great city with loads of cool little districts where you can hang out, eat and drink, but we found that a healthy meal was hard to come by - these Chileans sure do love their meat!
