Hello everyone!

Post by General_Ohiggins » Sun Jan 01, 2012 10:23 am

Hello everyone,

I am a Chilean who lived in Canada for almost 3 years. I lived in Winnipeg, Manitoba. A beautiful tiny city, where the winter is just amazingly cold hahahaha with temperatures that can reach easily -40 during winter time. I love that weather and I have to say that is one of the things that I miss the most from there. I studied and worked there and it was such a wonderful experience!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I came back to Chile this year, on April, and since then I've been looking for a job,so far no luck but I dont lose hope.

I have read this forum for a couple of months and I have to say it's very useful specially with information about finding some "comida gringa" hahahahaa when I was in "winterpeg" I was missing chilean food sooo bad!! but now that I'm here is the other way around, I would kill for having some perogies or a nice burger with canadian bacon, canadian cheddar and chili!!!!

Anyways, Happy New Year!! hope u have an amazing 2012, best wishes to all of you.

Marraquetas !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Churrascos italianos!!! Completos italianos!!! mainly sandwiches, and also there's something funny about this food thing! I've read that a lots of people here complain about chilean milk and cheese, well when I was there I was complaining all the time about canadian milk and cheese hahahahaa I think it is just a matter of taste, if you grew up in Canada u get used to some kinds of flavor same happens the other way around, I felt that milk over there was just too "watery

Take it easy. You are clearly not well. I believe that there is now psychological help available, though.

No wonder the "chilean cuisine" is so bad, if you can make a chilean happy with such junk................

as happy as you can make a gringo expat with a hamburger, a German expat with a Bratwurst or Döner or what else junk food they might be craving for abroad... People all over the world from time to time enjoy fast food and sometimes it´s the easiest things you will miss if you live in another country:)
