Day 2 in Santiago

The City Walk

sunny 84 °F

Today was walking the city to feel the vibe. Wow what a big city. We ended up on the double decker bus to see the whole city and to get some reference points. I would recommend this is you want to get a good basic feel for the different parts. Santiago is a big, busy city. It remind me of New York, or LA. Lots of people, and the cars will run you over.

I personal don't like a city that big. I feel like a ant trying to make it way through the maze. We did however had great food all day.

I took my 50mm with me to shot the sites. It was a little narrow for some shots. The one thing that I keep hearing all day is keep you camera very close. I good advise in this town. In fact if I had to do it over again, I would have taking a point and shot or just used my phone. But of course I forgot to charge it and it was a brick all day. Plus At@T does not get the bet connection or at least for me.

We walked most of the day. Seeing people go to work on a Monday and come back home. Funny thing is, it all the same. I'm just happy I"m on vacation.
