Santiago — Day One
Some photos on Day 1 in Santiago
It’s been a couple decades since I spent time in a hostel. My funny first thought was “this must be a little what prison is like.” New guy, have to position oneself in the hierarchy, punch out someone, or be someone’s bitch. But “little like prison” really means “very little like prison.” Nice desk person, everyone quiet and respectful as befits a shared space.

“Un chico” size is a single small fried donut, 100 Chilean pesos, or 15 cents USD.
A Viking themed restaurant.
Magic of using Google Translate app. This is the “before” photo…

Interesting looking busses
I don’t think Tom knows about this.
The airport lounge during my overnight at the Lima Aeropuerto. Could only use it for 3 hrs at a time. Rested there when I arrived, slept out in the main airport seats, then went back prior to my flight.
Market in Santiago
Hamburger Italiano had slices of beef, guacamole, tomatoes and mayonnaise. Not sure what was so “Italiano” about it.
Fried empanadas had cheese in the center.
Would like to find out what mountain that was — largest on the horizon.
