There is Nothing like Santiago
This city is all hand cut stone. Every turn of the head is something beautiful and a work of art.
As I walk through the streets, I am overwhelmed by the intricate stone cuttings that must have taken years to accomplish. Six hundred years of stone art. Made to last for generations of travelers to enjoy for many years to come.
Lovely outdoor cafes, serving our favorite drinks and little dish's of ham, cheese and bread, or just chips. People watching is constant with thousands of tourists the fill the streets. Many "Pilgrims" in hiking boots and staff walk by having just arrived after there long walk.
We love being here. We have made it and enjoy the sit and the time off the bike that now sits waiting to be boxed and shipped back home with us on the plane on Wednesday.
Back to our worlds that while here in Santiago, seems so very far away!
