We soon got over it and headed into the city to check things out. The city was busy despite it being mid afternoon - plenty of people were in the pedestrian malls shopping and sitting in the shady spots in the plaza. Next day we enjoyed the park overlooking our hotel and saw a great 360 degree view with the Andes and hills surrounding the city. The city reminded us of some of the cities in Europe especially the Plaza which was a great people watching spot so we spent some time there seeing people take it easy, sell crafts, preach about god and play chess (just like Chrischurch really, but with a few hundred more people). We sampled some nice food and enjoyed a few beers and a cocktail and particularly liked the at the family run bar next to our Hotel - great service and even a piano man playing some tunes we knew. A great spot to get over our jet lag and plan our next leg to Columbia.
