"I arrived in Santiago"

 Santiago is the capital of Chile, and the largest city in the country. It is in the country’s central valley, around an hour to the east of Valparaiso, which serves as the legislative capital still. Santiago is one of Latin America’s most modern and cosmopolitan cities – it features an underground system, high-rise buildings, a large financial district and many modern shopping centres and suburban developments. Few historical buildings survive due to the city being prone to earthquakes, but they include some beautiful examples of colonial architecture, such as the Municipal Theatre.
