Casa Olivari, May 26th, 2014, Santiago de Chile
Every time I walk by an old shop I make an effort to stop and investigate. Last Friday after a meeting in Santiago Center I decided to walk to the metro station (Santa Anna) that was a bit further, in order to get some much needed exercise. When I arrived to Catedral Street I stopped and started to admire the old Congress building that was recently restored and then I turned to the other side of the street and noticed a group of older buildings that lacked some paint but were probably attractive structures back in the day. So I crossed the street and entered the only shop on the whole block; Casa Olivari, a fabric shop that has been around for over 75 years.
