Forecast for Santiag

Good thing we bought the gear for Torres del Paine, I’m safe from all the slippery tiles and rivers of water going through the streets.

Fun facts:

  • in Santiago only one commune (known as… Santiago) has surface water drain system
  • they use extremely slippery tiles, that become even more slippery with a little bit of rain, so you basically end up as a penguin dancing on ice

However this kind of weather brings another tradition that surfaced in Chile, namely staying home and eating sopaipillas. Add pebre to that and you have a delicious unhealthy meal.
