Santiago, Chile – New Memories

Two main reasons for me to write this blog are first to record thoughts on travel and second to understand the context of the experiences I’ve had. The recording has been pretty satisfying.  The understanding of my experiences is still maturing.  I felt this especially on returning to Chile after 45 years. So much history, so many stories.

It was interesting to see the International Women’s Day demonstrations. Getting around Santiago was easy using metro subway, buses, and walking, and we wandered around neighborhoods both near and far. Nothing reminded me of my journeys so many years ago. What I am left with are amazing visions of street art, open air sculptures, monuments, and a garden in the foothills.

We spent several hours wandering around the murals of the San Miguel neighborhood Museo a Cielo Abierto or Open Air Mural Museum . I loved every mural both official and unofficial art works. I uploaded many so click on the ones you like.

A few more inspirations from the streets.

There was also time to reflect on my younger days and an earlier September 11 in 1973.
