Welcome to Santiago

Hello love!

Welcome back to my blog ๐Ÿ™‚

This time I am finally writing about Santiago, Chile, where I arrived 2 weeks ago and will stay here 2 months total. ย As you maybe know from my Instagram, I arrived here in order to work as a model, not just visiting, but I will of course do as much as sightseeing possible and maybe travel to other parts of Chile.ย I am staying in ย in Providencia, a nice and calm part of the city but still quite central.

I personally think the city is beautiful, its a mix of modern buildings with colorful little houses, and there are palm trees everywhere as you can see <3

To begin with here are random facts about Santiago and people here

  • Winter here is not really winter I know of
  • You can go skiing to mountains out of Santiago and wear a t-shirt on same day in the city
  • When meeting new people, you kiss once on the cheek
  • Spanish they speak here is different than in other Spanish speaking countries around
  • “Cachai” is a phrase they use a lot, and it means “do you get it?”
  • They eat a lot of avocado

Hope that gives you a general idea ๐Ÿ˜€

So far I did a bit of sightseeing and did some cool things such as hiking Cerro San Cristobal and visited Bellavista district. The Cerro San Cristobal is a hill in northern part of Santiago, and on top of it there is a statue of Virgin Mary. The idea of climbing the hill is obviously to reach the top where the statue is and pray if you wish. I went all the way up with my flatmates on a warm sunny day, and the views we could enjoy on the way were spectacular! You can see it all on photos bellow. I also took many photos with my analogue camera, that I will share with you in a next gallery post.

On the weekend, we had a little girls night in Bellavista area which is super colorful and cute, just as I would imagine South America before coming here. Bars have both inside and outside seating, where people are drinking and enjoying their time. There is a passage as well which offers more bars, so we picked a random one and had some finger food and wine. Wine is very important here, so we will for sure do a real wine tasting one day as well.
