Caption contest: What is Chris pondering as he looks out over this pond?
The Jardín Botánico Nacional was a nice afternoon walk, with ponds, trees and — my favorite — hydrangeas.
It’s roughly eight kilometers away from downtown Viña del Mar, and the recommended way to get there is by bus. The buses, called micros, can get you everywhere, but they’re super confusing. There are usually eight locations listed on the front of the bus. Which is the destination? There are also several different fares. Which do we pay? Local, direct, hill, school?
Anyway, we managed to figure it out, so we celebrated with a trip to the bakery afterwards.
