As pointed out in the Elqui Valley the towns are very small and many of the occupants already speak English of some form or other and the rest can’t afford lessons so they just hang around English speakers learning the language by osmosis. The first town of any size is La Serena on the coast.
I’m up there early next week looking at a vineyard. I’ll let you know what’s happening, our winegrower lives in the valley.
Yes please any information on La Serena the better especially about yes, jobs, but also the layout, and the surrounding countryside if such exists and pretty much whatever you got, thank you
