These are the photos I wanted to show you! My diligent website is good at publishing my work on the date I ask. However, I am no match for its computer efficiency. My mistake. Luckily, when I named my site Fake Flamenco, I set expectations at imperfect!
Back to my favorite Chilean places. I couldn’t believe the variety of natural features in Chile. Few countries have as many landscapes. Here is my previous post all dressed up with the intended links and photos!
- Atacama Desert Altiplano (flamingoes) Altitude sickness kept me from getting out of the truck to get closer. See the link for a larger view of the beautiful birds. Now these are Real Flamencos (Flamingos) from Chile! (not fake ; )
- Pablo Neruda’s home near the sea, “Isla” Negra. One of Chile’s most famous poets, Neruda has three houses. Their interiors show his eclectic tastes and unique personality. For example, he would only drink from colored glasses. According to Neruda, drinks tasted better that way. Try it, see what you think.
- Punta Arenas (penguins) Taking advantage of the December warm season, we also visited Punta Arenas, the coldest city in the country. Adorable little penguins stood in their small earthen homes on the beach. I struck up a conversation with one and he looked to be earnestly listening.
- Hot Springs: Termas Colinas in the Andes above Santiago. Forgot my camera! See the link. These very relaxing mineral hot springs are an hour outside of Santiago.
- Arica’s San Marcos Cathedral and Customs House – Aduana by Eiffel. Yes, really. Gustave Eiffel began his career by making pre-fabricated structures. In the small city of Arica, lie two architectural gems. In a further twist, Arica was in Peru at that time.
- Lake Verde in Parque Huerquehue outside Pucón
