Things you might see on the boardwalk in San Antonio, Chile.

Look closely at his neck and you will see the guys face... this outfit of a mythical tree creature was handmade with recycled rubber materials and stands about 8 feet tall.

Three Rings for the Elven-kings under the sky,
Seven for the Dwarf-lords in their halls of stone,
Nine for Mortal Men doomed to die,
One for the Dark Lord on his dark throne
In the Land of Mordor where the Shadows lie.
One Ring to rule them all, One Ring to find them,
One Ring to bring them all and in the darkness bind them
In the Land of Mordor where the Shadows lie.

I see much of the beautiful land and blue skies and a herd of cows.

I had this problem with my Galaxy S6 and it was bewildering to me... Glad to see Samsung has fixed the problem.
Samsung has released the QuickPanel Restore app to bring back the quick settings toggles in the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge that suddenly went missing.

depending on the subject matter.

This is my second stay at Hotel Diego de Almagro in Concepción and I must say that I love it... clean, modern, comfortable rooms. Although it is located next to a highway, the double-pane, thermal windows keep the traffic noise out of the room. The AC unit in the room works great but I must admit that I wish it did not blow directly over (and on) the bed. The in-house restaurant has great food so I do not bother to search for another option... their salmon, as well as their salad bar are fantastic. Highly recommended for the business traveler.

Great, centrally located, cabins that are close to Villarrica & Pucón yet still in the countryside. Only 5 minutes from Ruta 5, to give quick access to cities north & south. Owners speak fluent Spanish, English, and German. We stopped by to stay one night and ended up staying 3! --- UPDATE --- Went back during the 18 de septiembre holidays (2013), stayed in the same cabin... had a great time! Enjoyed the fireplace (they supply the wood) at night, although be aware that as the fire dies down at night, it can get chilly and you will need to restart the fire. I usually had to do this 2 or 3 times a night.

Nice facility... Front desk was understaffed but friendly and efficient. The restaurant was nice but the wait staff seemed untrained and the menu limited and the food was okay at best. The rooms are small but we'll designed, comfortable and efficient. The wifi was temperamental. Supposedly my room would have an ocean view but as you can see in the attached photo, the ocean view was a joke! Overall, a very nice facility and I will stay here again.

Santiago has a fairly modern airport... In fact they have made many improvements since the earthquake in 2010.
