Post-Colonial Splendor

Again, when talking about South America, I go back to my fifth grade geography and history lessons. In Chile, I was surrounded by what I like to call “colonial splendor,” something that harkens back to a post-colonial past, a past where their former colonizer is remembered, but it is also side by side with the new history of country. In Chile, that was hugely represented.

Ah, that colonial splendor:
