Santiago was fantastic for several reasons. Everyone spoke Spanish, which although we were terrible at, was still easier for us that Brazilian Portuguese. Also, we discovered one of our favourite wines while we were there - Concha y Toro's Carminere.
Santiago was a lot of walking and once again I was back in travel photographer mode. Lotsa buildings, lotsa streets.
We also went on a wine tour to Concha y Toro, which we had first tried all those months ago in Patagonia, so in a sense we were coming full circle.
