    Hello world,
    As many known, I live in the capital of Chile, Santiago.
    I wonder who of yours known Chile? By name or has visited them?

    I'm attaching a picture from the Río Petrohue (Petrohue river).

    Hi Sir Carew, ;)

    I've never been to Chile. But I do know about it, Location & ~a little~ history wise.

    It's located in Southern South America, between Argentina , Peru and the Pacific Ocean ... it was a Spanish Colony ... gained independance in the early 1800's. It's a Republic. Chile was ruled by a dictatorial military regime from mid 70's until 1990. ;)

    So how did I do? ~Please~ Correct me if I'm wrong with any of the details ... memory goes a little fuzzy with the passage of time. ;)

    I said "no", and I realized after that, that what you call "Chile" is probably called "Chilie" in french... so in fact yes at least I known the name ;)

    Hey Sir Carew,

    Correct me if I'm wrong but a couple of guys named Zamorano and Salas were Chilean football players that I enjoyed watching on the pitch. A lot of the fruits and veggies that are available in my area in the Winter are from Chile.

    Play on, big ed
