My boss down here spoils me. There is a mountain that backs the university and is a major tourist point (Monserrate). You can either hike it, ride a tram, or a cable car. At night it is lit up beautifully and you can go up to eat something and to take in a view of the city lit up below. When Carlin was here my boss proposed a lab trip for us to all go together and to have a great time snacking and enjoying ourselves. Below are the photos to show you how beautiful the cable car station was, and the awesome view. There isn't much else to say about what is coming below, so enjoy!!
This si some of the lab! Listed left to right is: Marlly, me, Carlin, Luisa, Veronica, Diego, Nacho, Laura, Diego, and Juan Camillo.
We went up early enough to catch the tail end of the sunset. Lovely!
Up on top there is beautiful architecture, and there are 12 stations of the cross to see. It was lovely and well worth seeing.
This next one is where we ate!
And the chapel with my silly labmates!
And of course silly us!
See that field? That is where I play frisbee! Like a boss. That also shows how close the university is to the mountain.
And finally the cable car we rode in! It was awesome. Thanks all!!
A couple days later we went to a food festival. I am sure you won't enjoy it as much as we did (since you can't eat there), but please enjoy it visually!!!
Old man from Up!

This was the singing and dancing police force. oh yeah.
