Exploring the City Center of Santiago

We spent a great afternoon yesterday exploring the city center of Santiago. We climed the Cerro San Lucia, a small ancient volcano mound in the middle of the city. It has lucious gardens, plaques commemorating people such as Pedro Valdivia and Charles Darwin, fountains, and great views of the city. We could hardly see the snow capped peaks surrounding the city, but got a glimpse over the pollution. We also randomly ran into a hotel with the name of our town we lived in in Yosemite...Foresta. Who would have thought!?
