Re: News on TV in Chile

The worst thing is that with the morning news, midday news, midafternoon news, normal night time news, midnight news and any other "news", it takes up about half the day's programming, without actually giving any news. The amazing thing about TVN is that they are "official sponsors" of the South Ame...

Re: Desierto Florido 2013

Any updates on the Desierto Florido for this year? They had the snow in San Pedro this year so I am guessing there should be a good show. Thinking of using the upcoming long weekend to give it a look.

Re: When Chile rights itself for Olympics?

I don't really see Chile hosting the Olympics ever. They have just recently awarded the 2018 (I think) Youth Olympics to Buenos Aires. Chile is going in strong for the 2019 Pan American Games, but that's about as high level event as Chile could handle. They also have a couple of big football tournam...

Re: Start-Up Chile

I got the same email, and the same feeling - that it wasn't read properly. (or at all). The explanation also had spelling mistakes in it. Too bad.

Re: (Now) Election 2012 Chile, and voting law change

I think it was Burmese guy who was vocal de mesa. Arica also had the bloke who lay across the voting booths while waiting for the count to close.

Re: (Now) Election 2012 Chile, and voting law change

La Escuela Salvador Sanfuentes presenta tres mesas con menos del 10% de votantes. En la urna 273 del mismo recinto sólo 9 personas han votado de un total de 329. La sorpresa radica es que todos los que cumplieron con su deber cívico eran extranjeros . (From Emol live blog) http://www.emol.com/notici...

Re: FYI -September 11 is tomorrow-what to expect

The game is at Estadio Monumental so that will add further complications in the Macul/La Florida area. (Particularly if Chile lose).

Re: Soccer Team Valparaiso

The ANFA is the body for amateur football in Chile - http://www.anfa2.cl/ The main team in Valpo in the Primera Division is Santiago Wanderers (go figure...). They just celebrated 120 years, though they are coming last and may get demoted to the Primera B. This is their website. This is the Valpo re...
