Just arrived in Santiago

First thing (and one of the most important one): I found my brother again! So good to see him after 7 months.

He just looks a bit different; I had a hard time to recognize him, he has now long hair and a bear...

The cathedral on the Plaza de las Armas, the most animated place of Santiago. Here the typical contrast of olb building and sky-scraper.

The trip
 
Description:
A long time ago I decided to travel to South America - to Argentina or Chile. First no money as a student, then no time as a (hard-)worker. But now my little brother and his friends are spending 6 months over there on their globe-trotter-trip. So no poor excuse anymore. I pack my shoes. My flight starts from Francfort/M, Germany to Santiago de Chile and returns from La Paz, Bolivia. We will backpack from Santiago up to the North until the boarder travelling by bus or train.
