Once I hit Santiago, it was time for a couple of week break as a normal tourist. I won’t go into it much, but it was fun to do the kind of stuff I normally skip when I’m on the bike.
Like sea kayaking…
…with a lovely companion….
…and an audience.
Hiking through dense forests…
…to amazing views.
Then there was also some time spent properly enjoying a city- Valparaiso. A truly wonderful place that wears its art on its sleeve.
Of course, we also did some riding around the Santiago hills for some spectacular views.
So, everything was perfect… Except that right after this photo was taken and I was maneuvering the bike onto road (it was a steep cobblestoned nightmare) , I dropped it since I didn’t see the rock in front of me. Dumbass.
