yes I did see a lot of different people in santiago - quite often formally dressed with suit and tie.
this one here, very white - no, it is not a statue, it's an artist lady!
my (slightly absurd) experience: after visiting the mighty cathedral, i went to a nearby bookstore, and this very friendly lady spoke english and helped me to buy a santiago volume. then i felt to need a coffee, went into a cafe a few meters away - and tried not be shocked when there the waitress came! but believe it or not, it was a cafe, and i got my cafe, a good one!
music is a big thing in chile, and it was easy to find a saloon with good life musians.
in santiago one will also see indigenous people, for example on the big market on the plaza de armas beside the cathedral.
finally - - it was in my hotels breakfast cafe where i saw this exceptionally beautiful lady - i couldn't believe my eyes when she served me coffee - yes, truly stunning, very proficient, and so friendly to me this strange foreigner too!
