Who is Yorka?
¨Born in Santiago, corporate slave until my late 20’s, I gave up my career to finally satisfy my thirst for knowledge and new experiences. I am well-travelled and I can flirt in 4 languages over a bottle of wine, whisky and/or beers (!) I lived in France and China for a couple of years before coming back to Chile in order to fall in love with my beautiful country. I have developed a true passion for photography (still learning!) that makes my world go round lately and I love food¨.

Lastarria/Bellas Artes Neighbourhood. You can easily spend an afternoon walking around in the park and then ending your day with a nice dinner and drinks; many choices of good restaurants.

3) Favorite place to eat in Santiago?
I couldn’t pick just one! It just wouldn’t be fair!

The best wines are not always the most expensive ones; avoid metro at rush hour; if possible, head north to San Pedro de Atacama; try sea-urchin because many ugly things taste great!
