<Where Santiago is from>
<How I met Santiago>
I met Santiago at a flea market in San Francisco. Sellers there usually do not like that visitors take photos, but only Santiago was willing to let me do it. It was impressive so I promised that I would come back to buy one later. That was how I met Santiago.
Santiago is the one who is made of warm-heartedness. I feel as if I were covered by comfortable cotton whenever I talk to him.
The flea market takes place every week and whenever I went there, I could not help stopping to stare at what Santiago creates. Of course there were other wonderful things at the flea market, but like I said, sellers at the flea market usually never allow to take pictures of their products, but Santiago does. In addition, I love the way he talks. “No problem, sir” “Sure, my friend” “It’s my pleasure, my friend.” He always finishes his sentences with “sir” or “my friend.” Especially I love “my friend” part. The word makes our mental distance very close. It might natural and not special for native English speakers, but for me, it was beautiful.
As I mentioned, you can see many beautiful stuff at the flea market. However, Santiago’s creations were the most beautiful for me, because they were also made of his warm-heartedness and kindness.

Here is what Santiago creates!
Each of them is made of just one wire. He said that it takes one day to create one of them.
Art will tell you more than words. Feel his passion, awesomeness, warm-heartedness!! You will figure out how fantastic Santiago is!! Enjoy!!
<What Santiago is doing now>
He keep creating beautiful bikes and motorcycles in San Francisco. They will take people anywhere with his passion.
Santiago, I look forward to seeing you, Sir! I am so happy to introduce you and your creations to my friends! I never forget how I met you and your bikes!!
Gracias, Amigo, my friend!! ^^
