I went to Santiago for a work trip, and had the opportunity to drive up to the Maipo Valley. I got bit by a dog and it was a scary, 2-lane highway drive up there (A GPS does not work well in the mountains). But these views were amazing. The hotel Altiplanico was amazing–I was the only one in the hotel and they made me a yummy dinner for one. I wanted to move to Santiago–it’s surrounded by the mountains and everyone has strong eyebrows. All the ceviche and ice cream too! Yum. Anyway, got to practice my Spanish and get some much needed R&R. Some fun things that you might want to know:

-Copper is big in Chile

-When you are eating fruit out of season it’s probably from Chile (Summer=Winter there)

Pablo Neruda is from there

Enjoy my pics!
