One of my biggest concern about living in Santiago is the Smog. The six months I spent here in summer were amazing and while there was some smog in summer it was not at all bad. I know, I know the hard time will be the winter and that is what I am a little scared off. I have been asking lots of people. How is it really like? And I got very mixed answers. Mexicans (from the Capital) and real Santigans did not see it as a huge issue. Even one expat from Belgium said it was not bad but ALL the other Expats were heavily complaining and that is what I am a little scared of. What is your experience? Do you suffer from the winter smog?

As Smog was one of my main concerns about living in Santiago I will be reporting about it throughout the winter (btw I am not here for the next 4 weeks 😉 so the report will start afterwards)
