We intended to take the teleferico to another part of the park but it was closed so after we wandered the top of the hill we took the funicular back down. On the way to the park we passed the church of San Francisco. We wandered inside one of Santiago's oldest churches for a quick look see. Afterward, we wove threw the streets to reach the park.
Another lazy day followed as we shopped at the Los Domminicos craft market. With a low key wander around Santiago's historic center the another day, where old meets new in a way that I appreciated.
On our last day a vain attempt to go to a winery just outside the city limits was thwarted because of the language barrier. But there were no long faces on our account. We really re-charged in Santiago and although I may have been prone to a little cabin fever, it was worth it in the end and allowed a more rigorous journey into Peru. Sometimes, even during a vacation, it is important to take 'er easy every so often. Corina seems to be more intune to this need and has prevented burn out, I am sure. Yep sometimes it pays to go slow, in this case, in Santiago!
