ESCALE à SANTIAGO du CHILI

 SANTIAGO du CHILI – du 23 au 26 octobre

Nous arrivons en fin d’ après-midi à Santiago du Chili.

Après avoir retiré de l’ argent chilien (distributeur dans une pharmacie, il fallait le savoir !!!), nous prenons un taxi pour aller chercher un hôtel. Premier aperçu de cette ville où nous reviendrons en fin d’ année.

L’ hôtel "El Patio Suizo" , situé dans le quartier Providencia, nous plaît bien . L’accueil y est très sympa, l’ endroit calme. On y retrouve le côté douillet et  soigné des chalets suisses : Armen, le propriétaire d’ origine suisse, vit ici depuis 8 ans. Petit déjeuner fabuleux comme nous n’ en avions pas eu depuis longtemps…Malheureusement, nous ne pouvons y rester qu’ une nuit, Armen nous trouve un autre hôtel pour les deux nuits suivantes, l’ hôtel Paris, plus proche du centre, où nous ferons la rencontre d’ un groupe de 5 français originaires de La Flèche et Noyant.

Santiago, capitale du Chili, est une immense ville encaissée entre la cordillère des Andes à l’ est et la cordillère côtière à l’ ouest. Ses larges avenues, ses rues piétonnes, ses espaces verts nous plaisent bien. Et nous pouvons faire provision de presse française !…

P1000420 En arrivant devant Le Palais de la Moneda (palais présidentiel), les images du coup d’ état de 1973 et de la mort d’ Allende nous reviennent en mémoire…Ce n’ est qu’en 1990 que le Chili a connu le retour à la démocratie et les cicatrices de 17 années de dictature ne sont pas encore totalement refermées…Au fil de nos déambulations, plaques sur les murs ou sur les pavés nous obligent à nous souvenir de ces hommes et femmes – parfois très jeunes – morts ou torturés durant cette sinistre période…Normalement, le Palais de la Moneda peut se visiter, mais lors de notre passage les visites étaient annulées – pour cause de manifestations, avons-nous cru comprendre…Nous retenterons notre chance en décembre…

P1000427 Autre visite qui restera dans nos mémoires : la visite de "La Chascona", l’ une des trois superbes maisons du poète Pablo Neruda, aujourd’hui transformée en musée. "La Chascona" ou "L’ ébouriffée", c’ était la deuxième  épouse de Neruda, Matilde Urrutia : cette maison avait été construite dans les premières années de leur relation pour abriter leurs amours clandestines…Une maison de rêve, construite et aménagée avec goût et fantaisie, remplie d’ objets de collection, tous plus beaux les uns que les autres…Neruda et Matilde aimaient y accueillir leurs amis et y faire la fête…Chaque pièce a son caractère bien particulier (les photos sont interdites)…l’ évocation de la mer y est partout présente…Le jardin s’ étage sur plusieurs niveaux. Hélas, la bibliothèque qui contenait 7000 ouvrages a été en grande partie brûlée par les militaires – seuls 2000 livres ont pu être sauvés…

 

La montée en funiculaire au  Cerro de San Cristobal (480 m) nous permet de surplomber la ville.

Pour le reste, nous verrons cela lors de notre prochain passage car il nous faut avant tout préparer la suite de notre voyage : recherche de documentation dans nos guides de voyage et sur internet, étude des différents itinéraires possibles, réservation de certains vols, hébergements etc…on ne le croirait pas mais cela nous prend beaucoup de temps !…

Demain, nous repartons vers l’ Argentine, direction Buenos Aires, en avion cette fois !…
