Fondest memory: The first time I came to Santa Cruz I was doing a bit of a road trip with my friends and we rented a car in Santiago and drove south. We rented it during the "Dieciocho" holidays which is around the 18th September. There were lots of people selling Chilean flags so we bought a couple to adorn our vehicle - meet "Bill and Ted".... I still have Bill and Ted although they are quite dusty and a little tattered after flapping in the wind at 100 kms per hour (or more...) hehe... ahhh it was fun!
Favorite thing: The plaza of Santa Cruz, like most colonial towns in South America, is the focal point of the town. The Santa Cruz plaza is a haven of trees on a hot day. A good place to chill out and watch the world go by.
The landscapes you see before getting to Santa Cruz are just beautiful.....the Andes mountain looks so pretty with snow..........
Fondest memory: Simply watching the green-blue landscapes.............and if you're lucky, you can watch an amazing sunset with the Andes in the backround....I saw one.....but I was in the car and I couldn't stop to take a pic........but the image is still in my mind ;o)
It's very common to see bootblacks in the streets of each town. Their boothes depends on their needs, I have seen some in other cities and they just have a chair and their tools.
It rains a lot in Santa Cruz during Winter, that's why this guy in the pic needs a roof ;o)
Fondest memory: I like to see these guys shining others shoes, like in the past.....
