A Day in Santiago........

By
Services for Real Estate Pros with Referral Group Incorporated

Chile is in trouble. There are major disturbances in the center of the city because the poor are pissed at their station, and blame, the government, the rich and anyone else who doesn't think there is a problem. We left early to tour areas that would not be safe in the afternoon or evenings. There is graffiti everywhere and most places are closed. The hotels originally scheduled for this trip were changed because they were ransacked. As I signed onto this trip late to replace my trip in Japan through China.......I didn't know. Our tour manager said that soon travel here would stop between the corona virus and the unrest. It is sad for this place and especially those who make their livings in this way.

Here is the tallest building in South America: 67 stories and reminiscent of Dubai.

 This is a protester albeit peaceful, in front of the courts building. 

Below is a National Statue debased.

And so it goes...........

Hello(o Hola) Sheila - my limited Spanish gives me a few hints and along with your commentary, I feel a bit more informed.  Admittedly, my knowledge of Chilean current events is rather limited.  To say the least.  Be safe.  Enjoy your trip.

There is so much unrest around the globe!  I wish there were perfect answers.  Perhaps, we need robots with AI to lead the world.  Humans don't seem to be doing a very good job of it!

Hi Sheila... not surprised to hear of the unrest in Chile. And I suspect things might get worse before they get better.

This is reminiscent of what I saw when we visited Cuba many years ago.  I hope your travels are not interrupted too much. It is definitely a learning experience.
