Junk Food.Mall Florida Center. La Florida.Santiago.

  Thanks to globalisation, the  whole world enjoys the taste of a well done hamburger. It is not the healthiest  meal but It is rather cheap and fills stomachs very quickly.

Chilean Flag 2

Chilean Flag.Bolivia Street 2048. San Ramon.Santiago

 During September, we have the custom to run up chilean flags in our front of our houses  to honour Chile and its first attemps to achieve independence from Spain -Therefore, my family does not want to lose the oppotunity to raise this big and brandnew chilean flag.
This is my grandmother's front yard and the power line  from the first entry.

Faculty of Liberal Arts? Pontificia Universidad Catolica de Chile. Macul.Santiago. Septiembre 2009

This is my current alma mater right now.  The Pontificia Universidad Catolica de Chile Faculty of Liberal Arts  or Literature ? I do not know how translate it.(http://www.uc.cl/) Anyway,  it is  a very expensive way of spending time but I suspect   They 'll  give me  a bachelor degree at the end of my study years. I hope so, at least..

Santiago`s Regional Library.Santiago

 .
Well, a little bit of history. The largest chilean library  was opened in 2005 by the former chilean president Ricardo Lagos. Its current placement was built during the 1930s decade and it   used to be the  former State Supply Office . ( http://www.bibliotecadesantiago.cl/)
I must confess that I am a bookworm so this is my favourite place. That  building  has become my shelter  its thousands of book are like heaven to me. Therefore  if I get lost I will probably be there.

Children's Day. August 10th. Tugul Street. San Ramon.Santiago

  This little improvised  "Chilindrina" (es.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chilindrina_(personaje)) seems quite uneasy despise the fact she is participating in Tugul Street Children's Day Celebration.
Notwithstanding this day has only an economic  meaning - It is an excuse for selling toys ,at least here in Chile- several neighbourhoods from Santiago prepare themselves during the first semester of each year only  to this occasion. They give their children costume parties which include dancing contests  and candies delivery . Although this adorable young lady looks too serious to join the surrounding girls and dance with them.

2048 Bolivia Street

My first uploading. If I want to show how is the life of my city, I think It will be a great idea to start from my home. This is the lateral sightseen from my grandmother's house. The snapshot was taken during a gloomy day this winter but the power line has been part of my life since I moved at granny's two years ago.
