7 hour flight from Panama, 18 hours from Belgium, and 11 hours from Madison. We have finally made it to the beautiful city of Santiago, Chile.
It was quite a change going from 90 degrees in Panama to 39 degrees in Santiago!
After meeting up with Chirag in the hotel, we headed over to Bella Vista for dinner. Bella Vista is a lively and vibrant area popular amongst young Chileans. It has a lot of bars and restaurants that offer both local and international cuisine.
After dinner, we met up with some students from Canada who are studying in Santiago. This is also where we met up with Nikhil who arrived late in Santiago.
After ordering some tacos in broken Spanish, we headed back to the hotel to catch up on sleep. After a good night of sleep, we woke up to the beautiful view of the Andes mountains from our hotel.
