El Bolsón

Image

Last few days I spent in El Bolsón, in the southern lake District of Argentina, doing…absolutely nothing:) Nothing as far as the touristy things go. I used the time mostly for sorting out my photos and finding out the best way to get to southern Argentina. Both sorted. Tomorrow I am leaving for el Calafate to see the Perito Moreno glacier which was from the start on the top of my ‘to do’ list!

Below few pics of the town.

Santiago

Image

Chile is the 28th biggest country in the world, but has the population of only 18 mln. 1/3 of that population has decided, that despite of all the beautiful places to choose from in Chile, it is going to live in Santiago – the capital. This certainly doesn’t help to the fact that Santiago (because of its location) is already one of the most polluted cities in the world. I spent few days in there and must admit that it was nice, after 6 months of travelling through less developed countries, to find yourself in a very european like setting. Apart from the pollution.
