    Reached Santiago again

    January 15, 2018 in Chile ⋅ ☀️ 22 °C

    The flight crossed over some lovely countryside with lakes and mountains. As we started descending towards Santiago, the air became a bit more dense with pollution reducing the visibility. We landed at 6:30 pm. I took the shared van for a drop off to my hostel. Just outside the airport there were a lot of Carabineros. All along the road for quite many kms there were policemen standing on both the sides. I was thinking if we had landed in Santiago for the 1st time today, we wouldn't have gone far with our highway walk 😉
    Later I saw on the TV that the pope landed in Santiago just an hour after I had. The security was for him. There had been a few riots and church burnings in Chile to protest the pope's indirect support of the pedofile bishop who had been appointed as the bishop of Osorno despite having a clearly declared a pedofile after investigations.

    Pomaire, keramikk

    February 10, 2015 in Chile ⋅ ☀️ 27 °C

    På veien stoppet vi i Pomaire som er en liten bygd kjent for sin keramikk. Den ligger ca. midt mellom Santiago og San Antonio. Her fant Nongo seg en Mate-kopp, som han har sett lenge etter.

    Mate er en form for urte-te. Du fyller en kopp med disse urtene (som du får kjøpt ferdigblandet på pose) har i sukker om ønsket og varmt vann. den drikkes med ett spesiellt sugerør med sil nederst.Read more
