Chile - 2001

Central Chile

Valley west of Santiago

My stay in central Chile was, for the most part, after the Smithsonian tour ended. There was a half day van tour of Santiago on November 23rd, before we left for the Atacama and San Pedro de Atacama. After returning from the Atacama, I spent a total of four days, from November 27th to 30th, in central Chile taking in the sights of Santiago, the Cajon de Maipo (Maipo Canyon) and the Valparaiso coast.

The map of central Chile shows the routes traveled and the places that were visited.
