And Now My Parents in Chile!

I promised photos of Mom and Dad's visit. Here they are!

The first day we were here, I took them to Cerro San Cristobal. Here they are, in Bellavista.

This is my favorite picture of Mom hangin' with the carabinero at La Moneda.

Mom and I are waiting for our food at Cafe Ona, a sweet cafe located in Lastarria.

Wide-eyed and tired of the whole metro process.

Mom and Dad refreshed and happy on the metro the next day.

Navigating through the people at Plaza Italia.

Dinner at Patagonia.

Dad hangin' with a local on the micro (bus). This is my favorite Dad photo.

A day at Valparaiso.

Dad looking for the next great mural.

We're about to take one of the funiculars up to the top of one of the hills. I think this is the one that had the dog in it. The dog got out at the top with us. Smart dog.

Our adventure to Algarrobo began with a big wait at the bus station.

Dad gets a little too close to the Pacific Ocean.

I think Dad and I are talking about sea gulls at this point.

My roommate took us to Aculeo on their last day here. Her parents have a second home there.

Here we are with Juan Carlos, Kanke's good friend.

So there ya go, the best of the best parent photos. They did a great job trying to speak Spanish, avoiding getting robbed, and taking public transportation all at the same time.

It's refreshing to see the point of view of someone visiting the city where I grew up. It's funny to see the security guards letting foreign tourists take pictures inside the subway system- you are actually not supposed to that (but DO IT by all means).

I like your blog.
