I spent a few days in Chile during a 4 week trip to South America in Feb/Mar 2009. Visited a new friend Ofelia Dammert who creates fantastic artwork in her studio in Santiago (www.ofeliadammert.com). Here are some photos from around Valparaiso and Santiago de Chile:


Valparaiso, chile has a setting much like coastal California with hills and blue ocean

[]

Ascensiors (funiculars, or incline railways) are a prominent and historical feature of hilly Valparaiso

[]

Santiago Providencia neighborhood; note the bike lanes

ITS (Intelligent Transportation Systems) giving drive times on message signs in Santiago

Chilean buses are easy and inexpensive; here a double decker long haul bus where I took a 12 hour first class trip from Osorno to Santiago
