Santiago, Chile trip #6: Day 1


I arrived in Santiago at 7am , barely sleeping 2 hours out of the 13 hour flight. My dad was waiting for me since 6:45 but couldn’t find him for a good hour ; it didn’t help when his phone died. Great! When I did find him we hugged and headed for the car when I saw this sweet dog as homeless as could be. There are A LOT of homeless doggies here in Chile unfortunately, but Dad says it’s only gotten better over the years. My heart breaks for them!

I pet him a couple minutes and of course he followed me – I always fall for it. Sorry buddy!

I get to my rented apartment in Providencia ( thanks JoDee for recommending Airbnb.com, it’s the best!)

It’s pretty cute and comfortable, I have a little kitchen and everything.
