most of the roadside in chile is filled with beautiful sights and breathtaking nature – still every now and then you pass a little tragedy. small altars along the road in remembrance of people who lost their lives in traffic accidents is a far too common sight. then, one of the many forest fires lights up a hillside and people are doing all they can to save their homes.
somewhere between santiago de chile and santa cruz, february 2014
say hi to niterói. rio de janeiro’s little cousin just across the bay. most famous for its contemporary art museum and its fantastic view of rio. the sanfransico beach is worth a visit when going here, and everything seems quiet compared to the extremely lively city of rio.

i miss running after your little footsteps and hearing you laugh. you are 12895.37km away and i’ll see you in two months.
with love from chile.
When people whisper in Portuguese
Its just as mysterious
And the stubble on his face
It hurt me when
When we fell onto each other’s faces
Dawn retraces heart ached patterns across grey oceans
Windows brighten up the room

valparaíso got me with its hills, the colors, the fresh breeze blowing in my face and its vibrant night scene. take that and add street art and the city has a new fan. here are a few or my favorite valpo wall pieces.

it is spring in santiago de chile. flowers are pink and purple. the last hour of light here does not seem to be blue like in other cities. instead, when i look at her, she blushes with pink.

valparaiso, chile, september 2013
after two weeks in santiago de chile my head is full of impressions. a new city, new job, new friends and a whole lot to discover. one of the places that is probably going to be a regular stop is the cheese store outside mercado central and the fruit and veggie stands inside the less chic part of the market. this is veggie and kitsch heaven!
more impressions coming up soon!
