So Santiago turns out not to be all that bad. I visited a really beautiful mountain park dedicated to St. Lucy, a neat little artisans market, and walked about ten miles just sort of taking in the scenery.
They even have vending machines in the restrooms that dispense (I know what you are thinking, you dirty minded yankees you) – toothbrushes and toothpaste! What a cool idea. I still am never going to be much of a city boy, but on this one I was a bit to quick to rush to judgment. Anyway I will be headed to the airport in a few minutes. Everybody be good.
