Anchor me, in the middle of…..Chile!



I don’t know what this anchor is, but I like it. Plus, it serves as a suitable visual depiction as to how I feel in Santiago – pretty well grounded. 
Great weather? Check. Friendly people? Check. A variety of interesting drinks? Check. In the last two days I’ve tried these:
  • Beer mixed with Fanta – not my personal favourite but it is original
  • Basil and vodka mojitos – truly delightful….yet another way to use this versatile herb
  • Pisco sour – incredibly tasty but just one bowled me over for a few hours
  • A white wine with peach juice concoction – delicious!
Oh, and how could I forget? CHILEAN WINE!

    Cool photo and sounds like an amazing time. Beer mixed with fanta appeals to the long lost teenager in me.Basil is great in cocktails, never had a basil mojito, but I have had a Bombay Bramble (Gin with muddled basil and blueberries).

    Beer mixed with fanta – I have to say it’s not that bad. Piscos = happiness in South America (well until you reach the malbec) and I’d love to try a basil & vodka mojito. Sounds like you’re having an awesome (and hydrated) time! Are you visiting any of the Santiago vineyards?Also, we have a large anchor just like that (my Tofino Album) :)Happy travels xx
