ITA - Dopo una buona notte di riposo, saliamo su un altro cerro, per la messa in un monastero di Benedettini. Anche da qui la vista vale la pena, e riscendendo percorriamo altre strade larghe ed alberate (per Vitacura e Las Condes), fino ad arrivare al quartiere de Los Dominicos.

Ci sediamo comunque ad una terrazza nel “pueblito” e ritrovo con piacere le humitas (una sorta di pasta/pure di mais, avvolta in una foglia di pannocchia, e che si puo’ mangiare dolce o salata), che non avevo piu assaggiato dai tempi dell’Ecuador.. Dopo la spesa al Jumbo, ipermercato dalle dimensioni terrificanti in un mall altrettanto agghiacciante, e una siesta piu che ... read more
