A conversation that sums up the nature of Chilean life:

Me: "Victor Domingo Silva, Pedro de Valdivia, Diego de Almadro, Eduardo Castillo Vasquez... The street names in this city are so long and difficult to remember!"
Stefie: "Not only that, but often the same street changes names 3 times without changing direction!"
Me: "That doesn't make any sense, why would the city planners do that?"
Stefie: "Pues, los Chilenos les gustan las cosas complicadas. I guess Chileans just like complicated things."

Amen, sister!


  1. How is poor old grandpa supposed to know what is going on if you don't post anything on your blog. Maybe I should fly down and we can hit a couple of wineries to releive any difficulties that may be bothering you. Obviously I am trying to "lighten" your burden during some very trying times. I have no idea what is like to be where you are at and can only interject a little bit of humor in hope of seeing you smile through my closed eyes. Love G & g

  2. Hey, the email forward thingy worked. Thanks! bmw
