Well, I was born in Santiago, and I have lived all of my life here, so I think I have an unconditional love for this city. Here I have lived good and bad times, tiny and big happiness moments, and moments of sadness too, but what I want to say is that I have "lived" here, I'm not talking about to spend time in a place, I'm talking about to live.
I like technology, and Santiago is one of the most technological cities in Chile, but I it doesn't make up for the lack of green areas and peace. If you like to party and have fun, Santiago it's a great place to do that, because you can find a lot of places where to hang out with friends and party, but you have to be careful, because there's a lot of delinquency too.
Santiago is considered like the centre of Chile by some people, well, I disagree with that. Santiago has a lot of services, communication and a lot of work too, but we can't forget that Santiago also has a lot of stress and delinquency. I really like to have hospitals and schools near the place I live, but it's horrible to have to spend a lot of time to get there, because of the traffic.
I would like Santiago to have a better environment, about the green areas and also about the people. The people are always in a hurry and stressed, I think that's because they have to work a lot and they don't have enough rest.
I love this city, but I think it lacks peace and happiness.
