On Sunday, I wanted to check out the park and the fortress I saw on Saturday. After a long and well-deserved sleep, I was heading to the supermarket to get some water (in Santiago it is not recommended to drink tab water). I can only say that this place is already my favorite spot in Santiago. Sure, I didn’t see much yet, but this place has everything for me to calm down and relax.
When I started going through the park, I saw an eagle on one of the statues. I highlighted it because he blends in very well to the background.
For the rest of the blog I want to let the pictures speak for themselves. I took my time to take everything in. Close to the top, there is a lovely area where you can sit. There are trees which makes it nice to sit even when it is rather hot. I think I spend about 3-4 hours discovering the whole area. At least 2-3 hours, I spend sitting and reading and thinking. But now, just enjoy the images =)
Those fountains were on the first level of the gardens/fortress. The next set of pictures I took on the second level.
The following pictures I took on my way to the next level.
Those pictures I took on the next platform.
This is the place I was talking about earlier. This is the perfect place. Calm, green, peaceful, and it feels just good to be there.
Oh, and yes, that is me =)
When I went back, I managed to shoot a short video about one of the traffic lights.
I will definitely stop by at this place once again. That is the second happy place after the lake in Ireland.
Have a wonderful day and take care!
