I’m going to play a game. Its called something I like, something I don’t like (© B. Geronimo 2010).
I don’t like big cities (Sydney and Hong Kong excepted).
I don’t like wide-eyed, camera-toting, socks and sandal wearing tourists that wander the streets & take photos of every quasi-historic looking building they come across.
I don’t like scummy, city-dwelling, stay home & cook tomato pasta to save money backpackers & the scummy dormitory crapholes they inhabit.
Ok, so I cheated, those are just things I don’t like. But after experiencing all three in the last days (minus wearing socks and sandals) I feel like venting. Maybe I over-react, had a nice catchup with a couple of friends in Santiago and a good wander around a very livable South American city. A few photos of quasi-historic buildings below….
