Santiago de Chile

A warm welcome in our first South American metropole: Santiago de Chile! Although warm is an understatement these weeks… Santiago copes with extreme bush fires at the moment and the added heat wave makes the city unbearably hot and smoggy. Despite the heat and before doing anything else here, we attend a Spanish crash course to be able to order our cervezas in Spanish the following months.

During our stay in Santiago we live in a nice airbnb loft in el Barrio Brasil. After a few days Max’s mum & Jan arrive in the city and stay in a hostel only 2 blocks away. We spend the next couple of days strolling around the city, visiting local markets, museums, cycling, talking and enjoying the local cuisine.
