Thank you Craig,

This village is mentioned in all the guidebooks.

To jmdias: the national flag

Hi Jorge,

There are more countries in the world where you can see the national flag all around you.
In the Scandinavian countries it's about the same.
Not so in Belgium :)

Dag John,

Vergeten toe te voegen:

Chili is niet een land waar je bang moet zijn. Uiteraard moet je in de grootste steden wel wat opletten.

Hi Mariusz,

I haven't been more southern than Santiago. So I don't know much about the south of Chile but I'm a little surprised that this village reminds you at Patagonia.
