This #bricola and the others on the property were imported from Italy and from the same oaks used in the 90,000 #bricole used in Venice. I can hear John Hammond’s voice from Jurassic Park, “We spared no expense...” #paline#bricole#palidacasada
“Located downtown in Santiago, Chile, is a peculiar cell phone-shaped skyscraper. It was built in 1992, and that is very evident, since that is what cell phones looked like then.
The giant phone, which appropriately is home to Movistar Communications, is surrounded by several parks, making for a very easy view of the building. Stretching 34 floors high, it is an architectural landmark in Santiago and was the tallest building in the country until 1999”. #providenciachile#torretelefonicachile#movistar @atlasobscura
I’m fortunate in the fact that I work with some of the very best people. I made a new friend with fellow First Officer “Paul” this trip. We share an affinity for adventure and our culinary restrictions are “Bizzare Foods” & “Parts Unknown” inspired. We took in the La Vega Central in Santiago and ate like kings for less than $13 USD. And I’m sure that was the tourist markup! #santiagochile
