A whole morning to spend in Santiago Chile. Out onto the streets I go. No breathing problems, sea level again, I stride out onto lovely broad avenues.
Where are all the people? Saturday morning, 10.30 a.m. streets deserted. Ahh of course the Ritz Carlton is in the banking district. Step out and suddenly I am in the middle of lots of people, swept along in the crowd and then, what’s this?
It’s The Trafford Centre!
H&M, Zara, Top Shop, Accessorize the lot. All looking exactly the same as at home. 12,000 miles and I find The Trafford Centre!
