Santiago, Chile - met a girl from my hometown randomly on the street. Very westernized city. It's like NYC's latin love child. Being on central time made it such an easy adjustment. Practice up on your Spanish though!
'Hand of the Desert' (c.1980). In the desert, about 75km south of the town of Antofagasta, Chile, a 36' tall hand protrudes out of the sand. 'Mano de Desierto' is a work of the Chilean sculptor Mario Irarrázabal. via travel and leisure
