One of the first things we noticed about Santiago was the pollution.
Sitting at the base of the Andes, the smog of this capital city has nowhere to go - it just hangs around. So, although there were plenty of parks and green spaces to hang out in, we were reluctant to spend too much time in the haze of the city.
We ventured out of the city to get our outdoor fix and did a good hike at the foot of the Andes, where the air was thankfully much cleaner.
Now we've moved to the coast at Viña del Mar - but more on that next time...
