You win some, you lose some. After the wonders of built in sightseeing that came with Belarus and Palestine, my free time in Nicaragua and now Santiago amounted to zip. The best part of Santiago was the flight in and the day to day hotel to work routine is nothing special. On top of it all, the trip here is ending sooner than expected and with that the opportunity to run around and check it out has vanished. So this is the view from the top of the hotel.
And the most colorful thing I could find on my way to work each day. Santiago's a great place, I just wasn't on the right type of trip to enjoy everything it has to offer.
