Barn meeting and Curanto
So anyway, going to have a get together, hopefully spin out some ideas etc, and since some friends are coming to Chile we wanted to show them something positive, and any excuse really to relax and mix it up over a beer and good conversation, and over a curanto this time. We have never done a curanto before, one of my staff members originally from Calbuco is going to organize it and prepare it, he's done them many times.
So yeah, all welcome to come and chew the fat as they say. Thanks for the discussion and ideas, links etc. See ya sometime in the future and I will be back here, right now, things to organize.
I'll still come on to answer any questions here, but feel I'm spending too much time on here. Email me directly if you want
Who said there is no such thing as a Free Lunch?
Greetings all, just wanted to share with you what we are planning and hope as many of you as possible can make it, it's not entirely free as you will have to make it to Los Lagos region.

What? A gathering to bring together people from different walks of life to enjoy and share a traditional Curanto lunch in a rural setting in Los Lagos region. With the goals of developing business ideas, creating contacts, sharing of new and borrowed ideas to advance progress for all, plus inclusive ways of conducting business in Llanquihue county, ideas that we hope can be replicated in other regions. Also a great experience for everyone and something different.
Why? We want to be part of the change and contribute ideas and suggestions and break from some of the old ways of doing things, but we need your help too. Help be part of the solution and way forward, help create a business incubator and strengthen people to people contacts from our community with the rest of the country&world.
