Painting in the park
Just opposite our flat in the Central area of Lastarria was a huge playground and park – Parque Forestal. On the weekends they set up activities for the kids and there are musicians and clown shows. It has a real family atmosphere with everyone enjoying the sun – a lovely way to spend a Saturday afternoon.
Museums in the Quinta Normal park
Science and Technology
Models of all the planets to scale and really helpful staff – none of us knew that the earth could fit inside the sun so many times!
There were a few pools in the park too where kids were splashing about – so cool – literally (hehe).
Fantastic free Natural History museum
When all else fails – Burger King!!
I didn’t particularly like the octopus balls in Japan, but the others all agreed these weren't as good! Sushi is interesting here – lots of nice citrusy flavours, but they focus more on the sauce than the fish and they use a lot of cream cheese.
Planetarium in Spanish - just about managed to keep Xavi interested between Robb's knowledge and my translations. Amber not so easy!
