Chilean Independence Day

OK so I have no pictures from the actual Independence Day, but they continue to celebrate the day after. Plus with any luck I will get in some celebration tonight.

All across Santiago they have special areas set up for family fun an celebration.

One of the activities is traditional Chilean dance. The guys wear some sweet spurs on the back of their boots that are insanely big. I hope that the horses in this country are not secretly 8 feet tall.

I topped my day off with a Chilean feast of their "traditional" beverage Coca-Cola an empanada and some bonus aji sauce to give it a kick.
