Santiago – Chile -Southamerica Trip

Suedamerika 1907 Final 5DMk3

Compared to other South American cities, Santiago de Chile is very different. There are many reasons for that, but one main reason is that the people living there feel more like European people instead of South American people. And you will recognize that everywhere in Santiago – the type of the buildings, the people and the type of food.

From Santiago de Chile you will get by car or bus in a 2 hours drive to the coast area like Viño del Mar or Valparaiso. You will see that in the next blog post.

La Paz and El Alto – Bolivia – Southamerica Trip

Suedamerika 1771 Final 5DMk3

We arrive in El Alto before lunch time; to be honest, we have visited a lot of cities, especially in Asia. And the traffic was really crowded in towns like Phnom Penh, Hanoi, Bangkok, etc. but in Asia the streets are empty compared to La Paz.

Because of the horrible traffic, the European company Dopplmayr built a cable car through the city. This one we took to get down from El Alto to La Paz.
