What on earth is that sign!

What on earth is that sign!

If you read this blog you have probably noticed that the signs in Chile amuse me. I love them… they make me giggle like a little school girl when I try and think about what they could mean. A friend just sent me this photo (from Chile) and I literally laughed for 10 minutes.

Any ideas on how this could be interpreted?

 

What’s that sign?

What’s that sign?

Caution! A skinhead and his short friend with clutch purses wearing long black jackets have been spotted holding arms in this area

I need some help understanding the signs here. What do you think this one could mean?

 

It’s like riding a horse: Bucket List item #63

It’s like riding a horse: Bucket List item #63

About a month ago I signed-up to a group called “Comunidad Po” to travel out of Santiago for a long weekend – and it was one of the best decisions I made.

As you’ve probably astutely noticed from the title of this blog I managed to tick an item off my bucket list! I rode a horse (something I’ve loved to do since I was a kid) on the country side of South America!! (I’m refraining from using even more exclamation marks). If you can believe it, this amazing experience of galloping on a horse in the spectacular forest and beach of Pichilemu wasn’t even the best part of my weekend. (more…)

It’s September, which means a whole lot of fun in Chile.
“El Dieciocho” is the Chilean independence day – which means a bunch of celebrations lasting all weekend. If you’re thinking of visiting Chile, make sure you do so on this weekend, really.

Enough words, I’ll let the photos tell the story. Taken last night at the inauguration ceremony, Parque Inés de Suárez, Fiesta Dieciochera 2011.

 

And it wouldn't be a Chile photoblog without a snap of a couple making out in public. There's a lot of love displayed publicly here in Chile, and I for one like it.

 

So much patriotism, so much fun, and so Chile. I hope you enjoyed the ride.

Please +1 me!
I’ve added a Google +1 button to my blog, because it’s what all the cool kids are doing, and it helps people find my blog in Google. So if you could be so kind as to “+1” if you liked it, I’d be ever so thankful.

When in Santiago, do as the Chileans do

I’ve now been in Santiago for ONE month… and to be honest it’s been lovely so far. I’ve only had one day of homesickness, mostly due to missing my fantastic friends back-home and the fact that food just doesn’t taste how I expect here! It is impossible to make a meal like I’m used to. All the ingredients are different (my self-saucing chocolate pudding tastes so strange here, I think it’s the cocoa) and none of the supermarkets I’ve visted have pre-made recipe bases! Seriously, I used to think I could cook. If I wanted to make a curry, a mince dish, well anything savory for that matter, I just went to the wall of Maggi recipe base mixes in any supermarket and looked for a sachet to my liking, followed the instructions and presto, a delicious meal! Here you cook from scratch. On the upside I now know how to cook some meals from scratch (I have an aweeeeesssome recipe for Chicken Curry which I might post on here soon). (more…)
