Spidermen made in Chile.

Glass buildings are very much in vogue here in Santiago, but when it comes to washing the windows, it's a different story. Those guys up there just seemed so comfortable, talking, working and joking at the same time. No vertigo for them, I guess.

Contain'art @ Valparaiso.

Gone for the weekend to Valparaiso, I couldn't miss this photo opportunity. Those big industrial containers painted with bright colours set up in front of the Navy Headquarters were the very unique stage for great concerts and plays. It couldn't be missed...I didn't.

Where is the bus?

Friday morning, the bus drivers must have slept in, or had a very long night because they didn't show up this morning at the bus stop. Hey guys!! some of us actually need to go to work once in a while!!

Fine Arts on the wall.

Rather than leaving those big walls grey and ugly, some artists (I must find out who they are) were contracted by the City of Santiago to make this corner a little more colourful, especially because we're talking about the metro station "Bellas Artes" which means Fine Arts. Now, you definitely can't miss it. It is so cheerful, happy-happy I just love it!

The environmental-friendly police.

A nice, warm and sunny Sunday...My street is very quiet, it must be nap-time. All I can hear are the steps of two horses on the pavement...Quite an unusual scene. I'm so used to hearing and seeing the old and very noisy buses that this short moment had a little something of my beloved French countryside. Now when it comes to real police business, I'm not sure about the horses' efficiency, but it's definitely a bit better for Santiago's polluted air.

Christmas is in the (hot) air.

30ºC, big blue sky, long sunny days and Christmas decorations...Definitely, this is gonna be a very different story this year...and I'll definitely be dreaming of a White Christmas.

Strawberries: a summer delight.

You know summer's almost here when you see those little carts at every street's corner. Sweet, small or big, but so cheap it's hard to resist! Juices, fruit salads, pies, cakes, or with champagne...what a delight!

How do you say "trick or treating" in Chilean?

Not so sure the Chileans really know what Halloween is all about, but not so sure they'd actually care to know. It just seems that as far as they are concerned, it's a perfect excuse to dress up, party, drink, and spend money. Not that they actually need an excuse...But the kids really enjoy getting out on the street at night to get free "caramelos". And so do the grown-ups...and it's an American tradition right? (or so they think) Therefore, it's gotta be good!
