Feel the Sunshine – Santiago, Chile / Erika Rowe

Pulling into Santiago was wonderful. It is a beautiful city, very European with lots of fountains and parks and tree lined streets. We couchsurfed with a great American guy named Eric. He lives in a fantastic light-filled apartment in a lively neighborhood called Miraflores. The streets are crammed with bookshops and beautiful graffiti and at night there is live music coming from every bar and restaurant. Best of all, Eric lives right next to a beautiful natural park that is crowned by a beautiful statue of the virgin Mary. We enjoyed a delicious BBQ there with his friends. One thing we have noticed about Chileans is that anytime there is a gathering of more than three somebody starts singing. We ended up going through all of the classic Beach Boy songs with his friends.

Our host Eric and gf Julia. Please, use your imagination to come up with an appropriate heading…

lovely couple that mended Yaniv’s sleeping bag and compression sack. It was so refreshing to see people who loved and respected their work and did it well.
