Day 21

Day 21: So…Santiago is a mixture of old and modern times, clearly displayed on my tour. We learn the history of the city starting with Santa Lucia Hill, the place where Santiago was founded in 1541. From here I will visit the marvellous Cathedral, the Government Palace and the Horse Club AND get to see the changing of the Guard! Then we continue to the eastern sector passing by modern buildings on the way to the Faba jewellery store, where I can observe Lapis-lazuli pieces being lovingly crafted & sold. Then its off to explore the city myself for a while before having some traditional Chillean food.
