Strange eh? But it is from there, from Chile!
Elena - Did you ever visit Pomaire or El Cajón de Maipo while you were here in Chile?
I loved the photo of Patagonia that you posted in the Photo section.

Hi Ww.
No, I didn't visit any of them. You did? If, tell us the experiences, I've just seen them on net, History, handicraft, adventure, nature. And both are near to Santiago, right?
Thanks, I'm glad you liked the photo of the glacier, and little delayed thanks for the comment on the other photo!
Hi Woodward!

Can you answer a simple question about Chile? It looks idiotic, but here it is - how do they print the country maps in Chile? I mean, a map of a suitable scale must be some 30 cm wide and some 3 m long according to my conception of the Chile shapes - not too convenient. What do they do about it?
You're right Bubr. Most maps are in pull-out form if they are in a booklet or at a very small scale. Another thing they do is divide the map into sections. The north, the centre, the south and sometimes the a separate one for the far south (patagonia). Most maps also have to include (byu law I think) Chile's claim to a part of Antartica, which happens to be the same part that Argentina and England claim, and also Easter Island and Robinson Crusoe Island.
You need to get permission from some government department before you can print a map so that they can see if the borders are correct. This is a result of the constant border disputes with Argentina especially in the far South.
Elena - I was at Pomaire and El Cajón de Maipo this long weekend and took lots of photos. Did you know that Pomaire is famous for its 'empanadas' that weigh ONE kilo! For those that don't know, an empanada is a type of meat filled pastry, similar to the traditional British meat pie, only that it's tasty!Emotion: wink
I put some photos of Pomaire on my site but I'm still working on the Cajón ones.
Students: Are you brave enough to let our tutors analyse your pronunciation?

Hi Carolina,
¿Como estaí? Welcome to the English Forums.
How long have you been in England? Are you studying at an institute or learning however you can?
If you are thinking of going to Malta, some of the other Moderators of the Forum live there and can tell you a lot about it.
What have you missed the most about Chile since you have been in England?
Un Abrazo desde Chile!
Woodward
Maps of Chile yes, the two maps I have show the country divided into four parts.

Woodward: I didn't know those big "empanadas" of Pomaire . I miss "chupe de jaiba", have you tried it? Good dish! I miss the Pacific Ocean too. The name sounds exotic . I miss the view of the dolphins jumping in pairs in the way to Chiloé.

Elena - We just went to the beach yesterday with a group of our Spanish Students. Two of them are from Alaska so you can imagine the difference between the below zero freezing temperatures they left to the over 30+ degree heat we are having at the moment. We started at San Antonio port and had a small pot of a seafood mix as we walked around. The sea lions we right up on the rocks near the fish market waiting for people to throw them fish heads. I will have some photos of those ready soon. They are really close up shots since they were only about a metre away from us. They are huge beasts so could easily squash someone weren't it for the barrier. Did you ever go there when you came to Chile? Then we had some of us had some fish and salad or something but where the fish is served by the kilo (minumum 1 kilo - Doggy bags come in quite handy).
The rest of the day was spent at the beach, relaxing in the sun, recovering from eating so much.

Next weekend we are off to spend the night camping in the Andes mountains (again with the students) so expect some more photos from there too.

I remember seeing the dolphins too in Castro, Chiloé as we ate at a restaurant that was on stilts over the water.
