Santiago by wheelchair
users of wheelchairs may easily cross the streets and they will in most cases also find ramps to leave the sidewalk. Pinochet spent lots of years in a wheelchair, maybe this fact led to some approvements in this field. In various museums - not only in Santiago - I also saw wheelchair-lifts.
Monumento a la amisrad / the friendship-monument
The monument for friendship is a large modern sculpture at Avenida Lib. General Bernardo O'Higgins, nothing special but quite interesting anyway in case that you get to that area close to the metro-station "U.de Chile"
