Santiago, Chile. You can see the Andes mountains from most points in the city. But also its smog problems:( What we enjoyed: The rising skyline, great graffitis and exciting food markets. Unfortunately the city seemed extinct because of Semana Santa (=Easter). The best hostel by far: La Casa Roja (private double room, 44 USD/night, mansion with pool and bar)! Fantastic pizza and atmosphere: La Jardin, a restaurant changing its location every year - globally!
