Taking advantage of some time off from work, we went into central Santiago to close some pending personal business, and, while there, I also grabbed a few photos of La Moneda Palace... to learn more about this palace:  http://www.visitchile.com/en/la-moneda-palace/

Certifiable Maniac with a Camera
Introduction
Love my family, photogrpahy, and my work.

Recently acquired a Fujifilm X-T1 camera paired with:

Fujinon XF 23mm f/1.4 R prime lens
or a
Fujinon XF 18-135mm F3.5-5.6 R LM OIS WR zoom lens

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.

The rooms are small but we'll designed, comfortable and efficient. The wifi worked well in the rooms and is free. My only complaint is that my room was supposed to 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.
