Santiago, Brazil

We flew from Auckland at about 2pm to Santiago. So for some reason Dan & I assumed that we'd arrived on Wed 1st Feb……however it wasn't until the day after when recalled home that evening did we realise that in fact we'd actually gained a day! So now we know we arrived on TUESDAY and the fact that we even managed to get into our hostel in the first place, bearing in mind we'd booked it for Wednesday, was a miracle!
We were staying in the Bella Artistes area, which lucky for us was actually pretty cool. There was a really lovely Plaza close by that was bit too posh for us, full of very nice trinkety shops & expensive looking bars, but even so it was nice to wander around. Then there was a street lined with tables & chairs, packed full of locals sharing a 'grande cerveza' so we of course joined in ;-) All of this was only about 10 mins walk from us, just across the River & so it was perfect.
We hadn't really had the chance to go onto the internet & do any research whilst we'd been camping so the next day we set off early to Santiago Tourist Information to try & sort out the next week or so in Chile. The lady spoke great English & gave us some fab tips on where to visit and where we could cross into Argentina etc. and so finally we felt like we'd got a plan together
