38: La Chascona
39: La Chascona is the home of beloved Chilean poet, Pablo Neruda. He built the home for his secret love (and future wife) Matilde. The home is named "La Chascona" after her wild, curly hair. Two entrances were built into the home to kept keep their affair secret. Even the graffiti in the area is inspired by Neruda. | Water trickles between the cracks of the small, outdoor amphitheater which is decorated by pillars inscribed with Neruda's poems. | The sun is built into many parts of the house. It also symbolizes Matilde's wild, red hair.

Fans on the platform mist water at you to cool down while waiting for the train. Once you board, the connecting cars create a great breeze..

52: We guestimated the prices on tons of fun souvenirs (flip flops, peso earrings) in this artisan's market. Since the exchange rate was about one dollar to 477 pesos, this was an interesting task. | The Patio in Bellavista was a great place for having a nice meal or meeting up with each other since we didn't have our cell phones to keep in touch!
