Anna and I were recently invited to an overnight house party at the beach, in a little town directly west of Santiago called El Quisco. The house was just a couple of blocks up from the ocean and it was a great chance for us to socialize with some Chileans and fellow foreigners, and to practice a little Spanish. We had a great time chatting with people and sipping a variety of flavored pisco, a liqueur produced in Peru and Chile, with some debate over which country it originates from.
|Pisco Sour, the citrusy national drink of Peru and Chile. Also available in other fun flavors, like mango, pineapple and lucuma!|
The best part was wandering around the rocky beach, peeking into the tide pools and climbing up the cliff at the point. It was a great escape from the city and a nice glimpse of the world outside the urban bubble, of the nature that makes Chile so charming.
