Santiago, ChileJuly 25, 2017 in Peru ⋅ ☀️ 20 °C
Long direct flight into Santiago at the back of the plane. Staff were ordinary, but flight was OK. We were both still feeling the effects of bad cold/flu that we had been struggling with for weeks.
Grabbed a taxi at airport on advice of Airbnb host and in our apartment just after lunch.
Needed to do some shopping so headed to central market area which was a ten minute walk. Walked around looking for a supermarket, no luck. Think large markets area with seafood buildings, many meat shops and large fruit and veg areas.
