Santiago de Chile

We did not spend much time in Santiago. We arrived on Christmas day late in the morning and left early in the morning the next day. It was quite a change going from winter in Denver to the hot and humid Santiago. I was a little surprised by the humidity as the surrounding areas looked quite dry from the plane, but I guess it was just that kind of a day. Santiago is not that far from the Pacific coast after all. We stayed at a downtown hotel and spent a good part of the afternoon exploring the downtown. We left Pablo Neruda's house for early evening, but having spent the previous night on the plane, we ended up watching the Star Wars trilogy on TV instead. That was a treat and at least for a while it felt like Christmas.
