Cerro Santa Lucía

Will came to visit me in Santiago the evening before the earthquake.  We went for a nice walk up the Cerro Santa Lucía, I had some chirimoya ice cream, and we sat on top of the hill and talked for several hours, enjoying the weather and the nice view.  Check out the smog, though – I love this city, but Santiago has a serious problem with air pollution.  A pity that there’s always so much smog blocking the view of the mountains.

Unfortunately due to the collapse of infrastructure I haven’t been able to make it to Viña to visit Will during these days like we had planned, but maybe if my flights keep getting canceled I’ll take a bus to see him before I leave.  As of now I’m scheduled to be on a flight this Saturday… we’ll see.
