Field Trip!

Last week I had the opportunity to visit Santiago again for a field trip.  We went to a couple of museums and also got to visit the oldest church in the city.  Below are some photos from the trip!

All of the exterior walls (the smooth ones without rocks) you see, were made from mud which was then painted over to make the façade of the church.  Construction of this church began around 1560.
