Beautiful Artwork and Stunning Buildings. Myriam did a great job presenting both. I was surprised to see the "Flatiron" building in Santiago, especially since doing the Flatiron tour in New York with Aaron and Patrick and seeing the same design. Thank you for sharing the history behind the inspiration with us.

I've learned a few things about Santiago today. Thanks for the information and for showing us around. The only comment I have is that some questions in the chat were left unanswered through the tour and there was no time in the end for questions. It'd be great if you could stay a little bit longer to read our thank-yous and answer any lingering questions.
