Check out that view!

Disclaimer: I stole these pictures from my roommate.

Today she took a trip up to Cerro San Cristobal. Normally Santiago is covered in a thick layer of smog. So thick in fact, you cannot see the mountains. Well lucky for us, it's been raining on and off for a week or so. Here's what happens after it rains in Santiago:

Those may look like clouds. Wrong. They are the snow-capped Andes!

Pretty incredible if you ask me! Thanks for sharing, Júlia!


  1. Beautiful pictures! So rare to get those views of Santiago in the winter.

    You should go up San Cristobal if for no other reason than the fact that I took you there when you were almost 2 years old, and you managed to lose a shoe, which meant carrying you down in what seemed the hottest day of the year!

  2. Find the shoe! >>smile<<

    Great pics, thank you Julia. The view looks phenomenal. White caps on the Andes are gorgeous.
