TURN DOWN FOR WHAT!
So I had just left parque O'Higgins last Saturday intending on taking a long sight-seeing walk back to my place through a different neighborhood, and as I crossed the street near Club Hipico, the collosal horse training and racing complex, an old, blue-ish grey sports car with a significant dent on the passenger side door drove by blasting the lil’ John "Turn down for what" song!
