Chile, Argentina & Uruguay: Day 2 (Part 4)

December 20, 2010

My time in Santiago seemed like it went by faster than a blink of an eye.  I did not want to say chau to Kyle and Emily the following day, however I was also counting the seconds until I stepped foot on Easter Island, a place I had been dreaming about ever since traveling became a central part of my life.  Before I met the girls for dinner and drinks, I decided to pay another visit to the W’s rooftop to take pictures of the glorious Andes.

My first time seeing the Andes was two years ago when I visited Peru and while I was driving through them I became completely enchanted.  There is just something about the longest mountain chain in the world that absolutely delights me (and no it is not due to me being named Andi).  As the sun set and I watched the snow capped mountains in the distance turn pink in front of my eyes, I realized that I was experiencing one of my most favorite travel moments to date.

To celebrate my last night in Santiago, the three of us started off with cocktails at the W’s rooftop bar.  If you find yourself in Santiago I highly suggest you head there for a drink, as the views are dazzling!  Then we dined at the restaurant Tiramisu, which is across the street from the hotel.  Thankfully, we did not have to wait for a table even though it was packed.  I would have graciously waited an hour if needed though, as the pizzas were that good.  I am sure it also helped that the company I was with could not have been better.

    Andi, these pictures are great! I am sure you would agree that pictures just don’t do justice to the moment you snapped the shots. I have yet to explore South America. In due time…

    girl i feel the same way about the Andes! I too, saw them for the first time in Peru when i did the Inca Trail. they are magnetic, mesmerizing, awe-inspiring, amazing works of art. i’ve never seen anything like them. no wonder the incas worshipped them!!!

    Lovely photos! I really like the reflection pic in the elevator. I agree with you about the Andes… I totally have a crush on them too. Ever since learning about the Incas in school I’ve been fascinated. Looking forward to visiting them again next month!

    Nothing is better to end your last night on top of W rooftop bar. Cocktails sounds even better. It’s always sad to say bye but then on to your next adventure 🙂
