Santiago take two

I have spent most of my time in San Juan de Pirque which has been lovely and peaceful and I have been making some wall mosaics. I visited Santiago again on Monday to visit my case studies (more on those later) in peñalolen with Daniela, Giselle and Giorni. I then visited again on Thursday to visit my third case study. On this day, I also took some time to do some touristy things and went to Cerro Santa Lucia which has beautiful landscaped gardens with water features and building colours that really reminded me of Alhambra in Granada, Spain. I also went to the Mercado Central where you can buy fish, fish and more fish (and a bit of cheese and meat). Here I had fish and chips Chilean style with onions and a fried egg on top.

Plaza de Armas

I am not sure what this building is called on Cerro Santa Lucia but it is very beautiful. I think it is 19th century.
