Los Molles, Chile

las molles

My last weekend in Chile was one of the best trips ever. Longtime friends from High School took me to a place called Los Molles – about 45 minutes North of my favorite beach Maitencillo.  We got a house right at the beach with an ocean view for a fraction what you’d pay in California. No wifi, no TV – Just friends, alcohol, food, and music. Nothing to do but hang out with each other, talk , dance, and cook. We shut off the world and enjoyed being in a beautiful place with good people…something everyone should do once in awhile!

My dad loves making himself laugh before a photo is taken : )

The first time I have ever seen THIS : Kids in Chile who start college I guess go through this type of hazing.

They walk around with paint all over themselves; anything disgusting like eggs, “liquids” from animals, flour… I can’t even make up the crusty stuff I saw in their hair.

They smell.

They also have to ask for a certain amount of money before they’re finished humiliating themselves!

They are walking around with their pants ripped off  and no shoes…

I’m glad I didn’t go to college here !

THIS is the famous empanada de Pino. It has meat, onions, black olives, boiled egg, and a seasoning I don’t know.

My grandma used to make these for us when I was younger and crave it when I visit.

Order it with a Chilean salad: onions, tomotos, and cilantro –

RICO!
