We wandered round our suburb last night looking for somewhere to eat.  The options were, it seems, restricted to Dunkin Donuts, Burger King and Pizza Hut.

A shrug of the shoulders and we wandered back to our hotel who welcomed us into their empty restaurant.  It’ll either be overpriced or poor quality!  WRONG!  Chris had a spectacular lamb dish and my beef medallion was perfectly cooked and tasted delicious.  Change of £25.  Impressed.

Today there’s a plan.  It might change, but as it stands we’ll be heading out of our suburb on the metro system and heading to the centre of town for a four hour “free but please tip” walking tour.

Theres always the option of bailing out if my bones can’t cope, but I can’t think of a better way to see a city I know nothing about.

Santiago itself is an after thought.  We’re here for the Atacama.  Easter Island.  The lakes.  The capital city just acts as a hub to everything.  I booked three nights here on the off chance it might be interesting.  And to recover from jet lag before doing the exciting stuff.

Lunch will be interesting.  Hopeful the eateries in the centre will have more to them than near our hotel!

Santiago Seems Nice
