Animal kingdom

Chile is special country. They try to be more modern than neighbours countries and their prices for everything are much higher then in other places in South America. Their landscape is very dry although nice and different. Specially in the north where I was mostly been travelling, desert is a tipical thing seen outside the cities. In each city there are a lot of gardens and they are watering them daily. The sky is mostly clear that is why they are famous by their vine. The time of my visit the temperatures were around 15 degrees although in Santiago I bealive they were higher. The nights can be very cold and above 3000 meter don`t forget to bring warm clothes. Many art crafts, product of lama or alpaca and souveniers can be found but I prefer Bolivia to buy such things since it is cheaper there. Even silver is quite expencive for what I have been quite dissapointed.But the nature itself is magnificant so you quickly forgot that life in Chile is becomming more and more modern.

The observatory

Cose South Chile has more than 300 days per year withoust clouds many observatories are there. I have seen one and saw the moon shining like never before. Amazing experience. I have seen Mars and different stars who were shining on the sky. But nights in Chile can be cold so around midnight I was quite interesting in going back to the hostel.
