Last Friday I was either shooting or traveling to go shoot for 20 hours. It was a very long but fulfilling day, and the weekend trip to the beach was quite welcome.
This was a 28-hour piano concert that I covered for I Love Chile. Read the full story and see more photos here.
In the afternoon I covered a chocolate and dessert tasting event at a culinary school on the east side of Santiago. And yes, I did get to eat some chocolate, and it was delicious.
Later at night I went to the Vitacura neighborhood of Santiago to cover R&B artist Ana Tijoux‘s concert. She has some great stuff, and has also been a big supporter of the student movement here in Chile.
It was time for some (well-deserved) rest and relaxation at the beach in Viña del Mar, with a stop at Pablo Neruda‘s house at Isla Negra.
Before heading back to Santiago the next day, we stopped for a little walk about Valparaíso.
I haven’t been able to do too much traveling so far, just day trips here and there. Here are a few shots from excursions that I went on in the past couple weeks.
I went to Valparaíso with Bicicleta Verde as they work out a new business venture there.
Pomaire is a small touristy town about an hour away from Santiago that’s known for its “greda” pottery.
Last friday I went to the most eastern part of Santiago to see Villa Grimaldi, the Herbarium, and Los Dominicos artisan market.
