Colourful Santiago

Dear Reader,

it is very rare to have a nice view of Santiago. The city, one of my hometowns, is famous for being constantly swallowed into a maze of smog. Constantly. Literally, every month of year except for mid spring and summer. Geography plays a key role here, the city is in a big valley surrounded by impenetrable hills and the Andes mountain range, so winds are often a rare phenomenon.

So when my big brother Stefano took this photo, I couldn’t believe it. I had to share it! This is Santiago de Chile like you almost never see it. Smog persists even in this picture but the contrast of colours make it a magnificent composition.
