 Park full of sculptures in the heart of the city. 

Today I went to the ‘Parqué de las Esculturas’ or ‘Sculpture Park’ in English. I did not plan on visiting this park, but like many things in Santiago de Chile, it simply presented itself to me. I was on my way to visit the Gran Torre Santiago, the tallest building in South America. As I got off my bus and began walking I stumbled into this amazing park. Different coloured sculptures as far as the eye could see, ¡Qué maravilloso!As I entered the park, the first thing that caught my eye was a 10 foot tall needle and thread sculpture. As an avid sewer, I was instantly in love. As I continued my journey I was surprised and delighted more times than I can count. I think my favourite of the day (if I have to choose!) would be the 20 foot tall flying bicycle sculpture. I eventually made my way to the Gran Torre Santiago and to the adjoining mall where I was able to find an organic vegan chocolate ice cream cone, what a day! Check out my photos :)
