We arrived back in Santiago Friday morning.... and would fly out  midnight the entry title is "Santiago - and back to our Bar"...  cos that was the big plan for our last 2 nights before heading home...and we were soooooooooooooooooo looking forward to it! What better way to finish our holiday than a great bar, food, music, atmosphere and walking distance to hotel in a foreign city???

Yeah right.... In the afternoon after settling in, we went for a walk around and...... everything's closed... part 2 of yesterdays Independance Day...Can you belive that!!??... sigh...and "our bar" is shut too!... very disappointing but at least we can go tomorrow - Saturday which will be nice finish for the holiday..... BUT didnt happen!!... it seems that as Independance day had fallen at the end of the week 90% of the city decided that they may as well take Saturday and Sunday as well and make it a good break  -HOW RUDE AND INCONSIDERATE!....

So we spent the time visiting the places we hadnt had time to see last time, fish market (with a seafood lunch that was disgusting, mainly because we had no idea what we were ordering and it was not good!)
We paid and extra $30 and got checkout extended to 6pm which was the best 30 bucks spent during the trip..hee..
and.. .now its home time.....
