Santiago and an update about our onward travels

March 21 until April 8th, 2018

Our travel from Mendoza to Santiago de Chile was smooth and after one night at a Hostel we were moving to Janine's apartment. In the first view days we explored the city and visited some of the Santiago sights such as Cerro San Cristobal, Barrio Italia, Lastarria and enjoyed our first Pisco Sour and Cevice. And of course we also did a Free Walk Tour.

Since March 26th we are staying with Christian and Maca and their kids Sofie and Martín. Christian and Marco know each other from their work in Switzerland and we are very grateful that they took us in with open arms and amazing hospitality! We extended our stay in Santiago until April 8th and are enjoying the time with the family. In these days we visited Valle de Maipu, the Cascada des Animales, the vineyard Cousiño-Macul and Emiliana as well as Valparaiso and Vina del Mar. Maca and Christian took us to visit their friends and we felt very welcome and grateful to be invited to come along. Thank you to everyone who opened their houses for us and greeted us like family! 

Tomorrow our journey contiuos to Puerto Iguazù (through Buenos Aires), Cordoba, Salta and San Pedro de Atacama before we come back to Santiage one more time. We will travel some more in Chile before we are heading to La Paz in Bolivia, Sucre, Potosi and a private roundtrip inkcl. Salar de Uyuni. The tour will end in La Paz from where we will travel on to Peru.
