I am a new user, and am headed to Santiago June 22 to try and improve my Spanish and hopefully study some South American literature. I will be studying at PUC.
I am 22, and am a runner. Does anyone have any commentary on the air quality in Santiago? Is it much worse than Los Angeles?
Also - I am excited to see how people dress. Is mens fashion extant? Do people wear Rick Owens, Martin Margiela, Lanvin etc?
I am fired up for my trip, but do not know what to expect in more ways than one. Looking forward to using this forum as a resource to try and enhance my experience and get advice some people who know better!
And one last thing - is there gambling in chile? I like a good game of blackjack/21.
