Greetings from Sanhattan – Santiago de Chile

(by Isabel Hertl)

One month is already over since I have arrived in Santiago de Chile and I cannot believe how quickly time flies when you are working in a great team and having a good time.

My first days in Santiago have been very easy going and relaxed. I moved into my apartment which is close to the office and with an amazing view to „Los Andes“.

I also did some sightseeing to see some of the most important “spots” of Santiago. By this occasion I already discovered my “favorite place” in this great city. I know it is a bit early to say that, but if you have ever been to the “Cerro San Cristóbal” you know exactly what I am talking about! And even more with a spectacular sun-set that I was happy to watch.

Another favorite place of mine is “Codelco”. That is the biggest copper producer in the world and this is where I am working and spent most of the time with my EY-team. Since day one I felt super integrated and like a real working member of this team. My tasks are very interesting and all my colleagues are helping me out whenever I get stuck or have a question.

My weekends I have been spending so far with traveling. For example I have already been to Valparaíso. This is a lovely place to discover – next to the Pacific Ocean with beautiful and picturesque streets and small colorful houses, chilean handcrafted souvenirs and little cafes and restaurants all around.

That’s all for today – will be continued soon!

Best regards,
