|After half a year of planning, we decided to travel to South America for an unforgettable adventure (February 2010). We chose Brazil as one of the countries to visit, and Chile as the other one.
Whereas Brazil is probably the most developed country in South America with a vast land area with tropical to sub-tropical climate bordering the Atlantic coast, Chile
is a resource-rich country occupying a long narrow stretch at the Pacific coast and featuring desert-type to near arctic climate zones.
We enjoyed our trips and the hot climate of South America thoroughly, and it certainly was an interesting adventure - in fact, too interesting when we were caught in the midst of the big earthquake in Chile in February 2010. But more about this in the web pages about Chile.

next to modern high-rise buildings.
