Wednesday. Wednesday was fun. In the morning, we went to a couple art museums, Bellas Artes and The Museum of Modern Art Chilean equivalent (in it's Spanish name. I'm too lazy to look it up.) (No I'm not. Museo de Arte Contemporaneo)
The museums weren't big by any means (compared to the Walker or the Minneapolis Institute of Art), but they were pretty cheap to get into - ~$1.50.
|This was in the entrance to Bellas Artes. There was an identical "sculpture" on the opposite end of the great hall.|
The two museums are joined, but you have to leave the one to get to the other (separate entrance fees). The contemporary museum had an exhibit in the basement that I was pleasantly surprised by. There was a group of artists that traveled the Pacific, and all of this artwork was based on that trip. There were videos, still images, sculptures, and paintings. I took pictures of a couple:
|I have no idea how canvases this big are made.|
|This piece of art was upstairs in one of the galleries. I liked it. :)|
|This was the house in which Mister Concho y Toro lived.|
|Look dad, they look just like ours! Except no bird problem.|
|He really does love me, I swear. At least, he says he does.|
|I had to take a picture for my work buddies! (McLagan is owned by Aon, which sponsor(ed) the soccer team Manchester United. We lost the sponsorship to Chevrolet beginning in 2014 because we were outbid)|
Supper that night was STEAK. Zach had a steakhouse recommended to him, Bariloche, so we headed over there. The following three pictures were Zach's and my meals. We're good at sharing, especially because we usually get things the other would like to eat as well. My (our) steak was ONE POUND and STILL MOOING. Like seriously people. On the inside, it looked like raw liver. It was a little too rare for me, so I cut it up into strips and cooked it a little more on the skillet. :) But it was DELICIOUS. Definitely would eat that again.

|Smoked salmon and shrimp on this salad. Yummy!|
|Of course, we had to get Chilean Sea Bass (see this post for reference). It wasn't as good, but still delicious.|
|This dawg doesn't care.|
