Leaving Villarrica going to Santiago

Flying near the Andes

Beautiful airplane views
We are leaving the country and going into Santiago.

 The capital, Santiago, is the largest city in Chile, home to more than one-third of the country's population.  Urban Santiago covers an area of 248 square miles across a basin between the Andes to the immediate east and the coastal cordillera to the west.
we got a flight after waiting for the volcano ash to is always in the air in Chile

In the city of Santiago, our view from the 16th floor

What amazing views! I do not think I would have liked being that high up in a hotel, lol.
The view from the plane was nice, too, that always helps the travel time pass ~
