Exploring Santiago

A lot has happened since we visited Santiago, Covid and riots against racial police violence. When we visited Santiago, Chile’s inequality riots was winding down. We stayed in the Lastarria – which is close to Plaze Italia, the epicenter of the riots. The riots have transformed the city – every solid surface on the ground floor around Lastarria is covered with graffiti. Traffic lights have been taken out and sidewalks destructed. However the city was safe and life mostly normal but you could feel tension and anger against police violence – the police repeatedly fired rubber bullets targeted at the protester’e eyes.
