... about Chile and it's recent history, but also showing us real Chilean life. We went to Mercardo Central - the huge fish market, to the big local food, fruit and nic nacs market, to all the famous square's in town, and most randomly - to a strip coffee bar! These are apparently very popular in Santiago - you go in and girls in very little clothing serve you coffee and soft drinks - it was VERY bizarre! We got ...
... a random place for some tucker which turned out to be a wine bar with a gazilion types of wine on its list and a way-too-intense sommelier who, when I asked if he could recommend a Pinot, spewed a spiel about a particular one. I of course ordered it. It cost, I worked out later, as much as our combined meals. It was very good... We stayed out later than we probably should have as we had a ****** get-to-the-airport-time of 2.00am. Tomorrow we would find ourselves in Cusco, ...

... to meet him at his hostel,
"Cienfuegos" which turned out to be a nice spot, and the first ever

him, and it turns out he knew Mark and Carlie, our ...
So amongst all my galavanting through Arucania, Easter Island, and the northern desert, I got hung up on this thing called school. Well as it turns out I am enrolled for a semester in a Chilean institution and there is some work possibly required.

TravelPod Member ReviewsHostal Rio Amazonas Plaza Italia Santiago
The hostel is very nice. Service is excellent and it's just a footwalk to the City Center and to Bellavista.
Why I don't give five stars, is that the single rooms are noisy, because of the street Vicuna Mackenna.
But I would stay here again, when coming to Santiago - no question.
