Chile - the people of Santiago

Ultimately it was people that I remember the most from Chile.  The crowd at the main square of Plaza de Armas in central Santiago.  The young men playing soccer in a park on Saturday morning.  The men pulling a cart laden with fruits and vegetables.  People playing dress-up at a street fair.   The vendor who sold me delicious grapefruit juice.  The men praying in a church.  The cops I mistook for ninja turtles.  The laid-back young men singing up on top of Santa Lucia at dusk.  ...  Chileans are fun-loving, pleasant, ..., and friendly.
