But Sao Paulo is also well developed.

Any idea if they already started to build the Hard Rock Cafe? I heard the mall is scheduled to open April 12th
Indeed, the mall opens April 12th, but i don't know exactly about Hard Rock cafe situation

I like it, although I think the shopping center is way out of proportion.
Can anybody tell me why is it taking so long the curtain wall?

I can't think of any European city that looks remotely like Santiago actually. Maybe you're refering to the general infrastructure which looks of a higher quality than is generally found in South America. Buenos Airies most closely resembles a European city and believe it or not, apart from it's unique setting ,Rio de Janeiro also had a very European look before the authorities there decided to tear down most of the old city because they wanted something more "modern" Result: crap that looks decidedly "old fashioned" now!

The shopping center is horrible . And nobody knows exactly what is going on with de CW, but the cladding grows, veeeeeeery slowly, but it does.

I suppose he defines european as modern, fresh, clean, and developed. It's a well-known fact that europeans see Europe as the most developed part of the world, which of course is absurd as of today.

European city

I have been twice to Santiago, the centre gives indeed an "European" impression. I would call it "European" for the following reasons:

1. The climate is quite similar with countries like Spain or Italy.
2. Maybe because of the climate there is a lot of street life. Watching people on de plaza d'Armas, the shopping streets in the neighbourhood or being at Cerro (hill) Santa Lucia at sunset you get the impression that you are in a city like Madrid. Cities in Asia or the US have another feeling on the streets.
3. There is very good public transport and it's quite clean.
4. In the center of the city there are a lot of old European style buildings. In Asia these kind of buildings are disappearing very fast.
5. Costanera center is in the office building area of Santiago. Looks more like modern European suburbs like La Defense, although on street level I think it is nicer and greener. I liked the area very much, the scale is still human.

But anyway Hong Kong is quite different from Beijing, New York is not the same as Houston, Amsterdam is different from Athens. So what is Chinese, American or European anyway.

The most important thing is Santiago is a very pleasant city to stay for a while, and Chile is a very nice country to travel in. See for yourself:

You must travel more often to other Latin American cities then, because those characteristics apply in many Latinoamerican Economical districts.
