People of Santiago (Ciao Chile!)

I was actually sad to leave Chile. I really enjoyed Valparaíso, and I felt very comfortable in Santiago. The city had everything I enjoy as a traveller, culture, art, parks, sights, pedestrian streets, interesting people and more.

I still have unanswered questions about Santiago. Why so many sex shops and strip bars? Why so many fortune tellers? Why do shops close so early compared to Argentina and Uruguay, even though evenings are nice and cooler? Why so much “junk food” when there are delicious fruits and veggies?

These are trivial questions but they kept my mind busy as I was wandering the streets of Santiago, one last time. I decided to focus on candid shots and street photography… these are the “people of Santiago”, who made the city so alive and fun for me!
