Photographer's Note

This shot was taken in Santiago, at the Cerro San Cristobal that offers sweeping views of this city. Unfortunately, surrounded as it is by mountains, pollution gets trapped in the valley, leading to an almost permanent haze, which means that you can't even see the mountains on the other side!

This sweet old couple was enjoying an afternoon out in the sun and the gentleman asked me something in Spanish. Not knowing the language, I reverted to the ``No espanol'' that I'd been practicing. It tunred out that this gentleman knew Englaish but it was limited to ``Goodbye, and don't you cry'' something that he repeated several times with a huge smile. Its one of my abiding memories of this beautiful city.
