Hey there. Greetings from the southern hemisphere here in Chile in Latin America. Before jumping to any conclusions, here are a few pointers to erase some misconceptions I have encountered concerning this country:
Chile is not Brazil: in other words, no tropical rainforests, samba, or anything like that... it's like living in Europe, or the US West Coast (only less developed). It is not Chilly in Chile, or, at least, not any more than most other temperate places on this planet. Well, actually, it's pretty cold down south. While on the subject, chile con carne is pretty much nonexistent in these regions. We are not crazy about Ricky Martin... at least, not as much as you'd think... Chile is one of Latin America's leading producers of hip hop. And I have never bothered to check in which direction the toilet flushes.
For more information, i suggest you visit Chile and find out the truth for yourself.
