The best food to be had in Santiago, The monger markets are not for the weak hearted or stomachs

Hi everyone,

glad to see that people have been reading my crap, well we have had an up and down last couple of days.  After bangers bday bash everyone, except I was really hung over and didnt do much, corey is now known as the sleeping dead he sleeps like 17hrs a day amazing!! but jim, mousedog (mark) and myself rallied together and climbed the big mountain that overlooks the city. It was actually really cool, santiago is HUGE and the snow capped mountains in the background add this cool ambience. After this we smashed our local market place for our regular feed it was great. Yesterday was probably one of our most highlighted days yet as we were invited to a farm for the day to meet the family of this girl called buffy (not a vampire slayer sorry azz) and spent it with them and her friends.

It was pretty mind blowing as they had servants, garderners, an inhouse chef waiting on all of us hand and foot I felt guilty but apparenty it is the way around here. So we spent the day playing soccer, riding horses, swimming in the pool and feasting on some real good chilean food UNREAL. Her father owns alot of clubs in santiago so he is really quite well off, he got so drank on red wine and started making well i would say us but it was just me dance with him in my jocks so yeah lots of funny photo's. However today we are all paying the price with sore necks and backs from fighting in the pool and many have sore feet, ankles toes etc from ill-guided attempts to lay a proper soccer tackle, BLOODY GRINGOES!! then today our bus plans got messed up to argentina so we have to spend an extra night here in santiago before heading to mendoza in Argentina. So thats a wrap hope all is good in your parts of the world peace out!!!
