Santiago, Chile's capital

OK. So I'm not a 100% from Santiago. In fact, I wasn't even born here. But I've been living here for the last couple of years, so I know a little bit of this city.
Santiago is huge. Although only 5 million people live here (and some can consider it a regular mid-size city), Santiago's extension is amazing. It can take more than an hour to cross the city from north to south or from east to west.
Like any big city in the world, Santiago has lots to offer. Nice clubs, lots of shopping, and some interesting landmarks makes of Santiago a great city to visit.

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:Has everything someone needs
  • Cons:Smog
  • In a nutshell:A crowded modern city, surrounded by mountains (after a rainy day)

    There are no yellow buses anymore. The buses are most commonly white and green.
