Santa Lucia

Santa Lucia is fortified hill in the centre of Santiago. Apparently, it has some spectacular views of the city, but the smog tends to obliterate the distance, and bleach out the foreground. The day we climbed up, the niebla contaminada was thick, but the view was still fantastic, in a different way to the usual tourist lookouts. The smog makes for a sunset more picturesque than nature can turn out unassisted, with super-saturated yellows and unnatural reds.
