But the press has given us some pretty crappy press just the same. For some reason they associate us with catastrophy. Hasn't helped tourism this season at all.
HA! imagine that! coastal chile associated with catastrophe!

after the aftershocks in early february of this year, which compelled the carabineros to clear the beaches here in dichato (turns out the epicenter of the first and biggest aftershock was only 15 km from us, and underwater....), pinera gave a speech trying to calm everyone down. he said that the aftershocks were likely to continue for 5 years.....thanks, dude....that's the way to boost tourism til 2015.

truth is, people almost always have time to get away from a tsunami. you just have to be aware that that's what you need to do. after what happened in indonesia in 2006, the whole world should be aware of that. we also need to remember that the waves move slowly in shallow water.....that's why the big wave took three hours to reach us from cobquecura.

The pull of Chile is still strong.

My heart and Heineken, are humbled and raised; to every allchile(er).... Charles, Cali, the list goes on...

All you who've given your all to Chile - - - - -

I poignantly recall the challenge and response from members a year ago -----

In fear of waxing to poetically, I'll simply say thanks to the pioneers who've survived and remained and continue to fight for Chile.

Our Chile adventure has been delayed (for at least five years) by grad school in the US - but hearts are strengthened by the reality of those living the dream.

O.k., I am going to lock this thread now. Perhaps we can revisit next year to see how far Chile has come (or not) in that time.
