Santiago moments

As I start to review my trip to Santiago – I do apologize it took me so long, but hey, I had a bit of a storm in my head, which I am sure you will understand – I look at the very few photos I took. I cannot help but wonder how many beautiful moments I was blessed with during this pretty intense, emotional and very tense in terms of the amount of information acquired time.

First coffee in Santiago, still at the airport, feeling the mixture of exhaustion and excitement to see many GVers any minute, meeting Agnieszka again, and heading off to face slightly different reality. Different as in – not mine;)

Mountains – something easy to refer to. Feeling of actual travel, when your window feels like a screened movie with amazing, new scapes featured in front of your nose! And then in detail – ordinary stand full of..well, still living animals…so silly to think how extraordinary it is for me, and how regular for the local community!


The largest, most delicious plate of seafood ever eaten! Consumed slowly, with tiny pieces of broken mussels in the soup – just as the locals have it, not we- tourists;) Just like my new neighbour had it when she was growing up in Valparaiso.

All this topped with a warm gesture…


Sweetness during the conference, and yes – still listening;)

Using all we have to wrap up a Birthday present!

Finally managing to get going for a morning walk!


Enjoying celebrity (G.V. Ferret)



Messing up a picture of a boy, who actually posed for me to express his ‘World Cup’ victory!:)

And not really taking my camera for the walk to 777 pub later on;) but enjoying the ‘just-in-case’ cuppa next morning…

Finding the memorable door!


Worrying about ‘another cake!’

Enjoying the sweetest moment of the afternoon!

Falling in love with children all over again! Admiring those, who make them – and us – smile.

Noticing modern heroes in the crowd!


Remembering the ordinary ones!;)


Already there foolishly trying to stop the time!;)


But moving on, with a smile on our faces…

To discover the strongest faiths keeping people safe…

..and other beliefs trying to find the answers to the unknown…

Leaving home with our own habits, happy.

All those habits, gestures, items, images stay in my memory as I keep Santiago, Chileans and Global Voices community in my heart! Thank you for having me!
