I would show to the visit the centre of Santiago, because I think that is interesting how differents forms of culture had a reunion on one tinny place, the different smells of food, pollution, and of course people is the principal memories that the people had of Santiago, for some people is nice and for the majority is not a good impression but is our culture. I would take them to the municipal theatre to hear some beautiful music, and dancing. Also I would take them to the CCPM because in that place the government exposit it the official art of our country, then I would take him to visit the Palacio de La Moneda because you can visit the principal city of a country with out know in the politic history. Then I would take hem to walk to Plaza de Armas and the cathedral.
I would like that the visit compared the colonial ascendant of our city that is for me not very appreciated for us. Also I would take them to the mount of San Cristobal and Santa Lucia and see Santiago from other panoramic, and because in those places we can see the vegetation and also bread fresh air, that is quite amazing in this city, and this will show to the tourist that in Santiago you can find almost everything, even fresh air and a silence place, at also to see that in Santiago we can feel that we’are not in the city. Also I my visitor can visit the Museo de Bellas Artes, because I study that thing......and the visitor must know Plaza ñuñoa near from my department, there is very nice in the afternoon because you can walk on he Plaza, you can eat ice cream, ride your bike, is very peaceful. On the night you can find greats restaurants or bars, whatever you want to do with your frinds..........

I wanna talk about not of my favourite avant garde but of the biggest artist of the surrealism.
My favourite avant garde is surrealism and inside that I LOVE the work of Salvador Dali. For me it's really hard choose what is my favourite work of Dali. But if I have to choose I will have to say that my “favourite” is Millet's Architectonic Angelus, because for me it's beautiful how Dalí quotes to Millet and abstract to the figures of the painting, in Dali’s work the figures are like bulkys, for me the figures of Millet spend the all eternity praying but nothing change. Now the formers are like rocks for the eternity of the times. Why it's ahead of the majority? Because Dali was a piece of art himself. In his work he quotes the works of artists of the past, and gives them other dimension, but the primary essential it still there on his work. Dalí says that he was nothing compared to Velasquez but he was bigger compared to the contemporary modern painters, also declared to the media disgusting and almost unnatural things about his sexual desires and erotics dreams that disconcert the critics and the public, he was considered a crazy person but a genius. What lustred his madness is this history: he has a girl friend in his adult life, but they couldn’t visit each other if they don’t sed an invitation, if one of them went to visit without an invitation they couldn’t receive the visit.
