El Golf Area
This is the nice neighborhood where we stay in Santiago, but we had raining the first days.
After the sun finally returned, we took a walk around our quarters.
The area is characterized by many high-rise buildings, both with apartments and offices.
10 minutes later there was no more space left – we just arrived in time.
When we were back on the street the pavements were crowded. Apparently all have lunch between 13:00 and 15:00. When the many thousands of people who work in an office building suddenly pound on the streets, it becomes really tight …
The center of Santiago is somewhat “different”. In addition to beautiful “old” houses you will find modern office towers, some shabby residential buildings and many car parks – some with more than 10 floors!
Lastly: It needs to get used to, this mixture of old and new, beautiful and ugly (10-storey car parks next to beautiful old houses).
Yes, Santiago has its own charm – it pleases and much better than Buenos Aires!
Something else: The Metro! It is modern, fast, clean and incredibly cheap! A trip for us three did not cost 2000 pesos (barely 3 euros) with single tickets. In Vienna you pay more than double this price …
Santiago Barrio Bellavista
Today was our last trip to Santiago (tomorrow will be wash clothing and packed).
Unfortunately, the weather was cloudy at first, which had a massive impact on the sight of Cerro San Cristobal.
In order to get to the hill, we drove with an oblique glider.
We liked Santiago very much. The apartment was very nice. “El Golf” is a beautiful area.
