What its like to live in a well-governed country

The BBCs take on Chile (down at the bottom of the article)

Actually more about Santiago than Chile.
While Chile is extremely open and friendly to foreigners, rigid social classes can make it hard to break into the country’s inner social circles, according to Lewis. He recommends that all newcomers join a local Facebook community group, so they can quickly make new friends and find referrals for English-speaking doctors and other services.
There, a nice positive post for a change.

Happy days are here again
The skies above are clear again
Let us sing a song of cheer again
Happy days are here again

Altogether shout it now
There's no one who can doubt it now
So let's tell the world about it now
Happy days are here again
