The main presidential palace here is called Casa de Moneda, literally “House of Money” and we got to see the changing of the guard, complete with marching band, horses, and about 75 soldiers. While they looked really sharp, it was kind of weird to see this in a foreign country. Minus the stars and stripes it missed the goosebump patriotism.

The other photo is of the dizzying atrium lobby of the Hyatt in Santiago…if this doesn’t give you vertigo, nothing will!
