FuFu Year in Review 2011 - Part 3



















FuFu Year in Review 2011 - Part 3
Chile (Summer End of Dec 2010 - End of March 2011)

It was a scenic bus ride from Mendoza, Argentina to Santiago, Chile, from the vineyard to olive plantation, from sea level to more than 2500m Andes snowy mountain ranges. So after eight hours sitting in the bus, finally i got myself arrived safely in Santiago. Withdrawed some money, called my host, jumped in a train to Univesidad Catolica Metro station. Met up Louis, we stopped at a supermarket for some stuff, he prepared dinner. It was the new year eve. We were watching tv while catching up with each other. I wanted to go out for the countdown but he didn't like the 'festive' crowds. He kept convincing me that the rooftop of his apartment could see fireworks.

"Chi Chi Chi, Le Le Le, Viva Chile. Feliz Año Nuevo", as everyone was proudly shouting out loud joyfully right after the first firework was fired. I repeated it again. The rest burst out loud. Probably because of my Asian accent. Later, several families started to fire the firecrakers they brought along. It was fun though. Something i didn't expect it could be like that special. And this was how my i began my 2011 in Chile. Louis couldn only host me for a night, so on the first day of 2011, we were walking around the downtown for hostel. Thanks God, i had found a nice hostel with awesome ambience and it served good breakfast. Santiago is a nice city. It has many great park. Totally enjoyed walking around the city, though the expenses was slightly high compared to Argentina and Paraguay and it was scorching hot (i drank 4L of water daily average).

My luck was not always with me. Why? Because my wallet was pick-pocketed. I lost two credit cards. Fortunately, i had Japanese Yen with me. Immediately, i exchanged all Yen to American Dollar after chatting with group of traveller from Peru. It's much easier to have dollar than Yen while travelling in Peru, because the exchange rate is way lower there. A week later, i headed to Puno, Peru from Santiago, Chile. Again, the bus ride was a scenic one. I met some Chilean girls during this South American trip, guess i have to visit them the next time i fly back to South America. Chicas, abrazo y besos!

p.s. : A full travelogue about Chile will be written later.

回顧 2011 (第3集) - 智利

巴士的引擎運作了八個小時
路途上的風景真的讓人陶醉
從葡萄園一直到橄欖種植園
藍藍的白天配上朵朵的白雲
終于到了智利阿根廷的邊界
在半山中看到很壯觀的雪山
整個人興奮到獨自放空去了
不經不覺也到達了聖地亞哥
提款後打電話聯絡沙發主人
然後坐地鐵到了目的地等他
見面後就去超市買食物飲料
沙發主人為我煮了美味晚餐
我們一起上天台倒數看煙花
二零一一年的跨年蠻有特色
還以爲我會一路上順順利利
萬想不到我的錢包被扒去了
快拜托朋友幫我取消信用卡
客棧的朋友說美金有較方便
我就把身上的日圓兌換美金
就這樣我趕緊繼續北上秘魯
離開智利真的有點匆匆忙忙
勢要回去獨自放慢腳步欣賞
還要去找那幾位漂亮智利妹
