Friday 27 January 2012: Sombreros in Santiago
Today we left the serenity of Easter Island for the salsa sounds of sexy Santiago.
We are here for a week based in the Barrio of Bellavista - the bohemian quarter and home of many of Santiago's artists. Street art is very, very big around here and there are many colorful murals which dot the houses and shops. One mural that really caught our eye was a sombrero shop called Gonzalo Delpiano. If we were in the market for a fine sombrero we would definitely stop here.
Tomorrow we will hit downtown and the Mercado Central to hopefully to get a taste for the Chilean seafood and ceviches.
