Chocolates And Memories

10 Apr

Greeting my friends
I was going through a couple of pics from my time in Santiago Chile South America in 2009 and decided to share a couple of my favorites,
The first one was taken high up in the Cordillera del los Andes past a village called San Jose.
The picture will give you some idea how high up we were as the snow covered Andes are both below me and above me in the pic.
The other pics are taken in Santiago during their week long fiesta commemorating their independence
They were taken at a fair that was extraordinary to be a witness too.
The pics are off the chocolate stand.
Now the old Emu is not much of a chocolate lover but after this stand I came away with bags of chocolates and the undying love of two beautiful Chileana senoritas
Ahh the undying love of a chocolate stand senorita with her wares bring tears to this old mans memories

Wishing you all good health and happiness my friends

    I’m glad I found this post, Ian. I am a chocolate lover and have become even more so this year of unexpected things in my life. You are so fortunate to have visited there and to see up close the beautiful sweet that is chocolate. Thank You!

      Hi Renee, glad you appreciated my chocolate story, I am going back to Chile on the 20th December, and hopefully will be able to visit there again, their chocolate is delightful.
      Kind regards.
