Chilly in Chile - Day One

Who knew it would be in the low 50's?  But, it's beautiful here.  We arrived this morning and spent the afternoon walking around a neighborhood called Bellavista.  In addition to seeing amazing street art and having a fantastic lunch (yep, it's all about the food) at Como Agua Para Chocolate...we also took a tour of one of Pablo Neruda's homes (of which there are three in Chile).  Poetry, art, food - this trip is  off to a great start!

A delicious start to our trip.
