I’m an amateur but whatever.
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!
From the City to the Ocean
Wine! Lots and lots of wine..
Smoking inside is over in Chile!
Las Amigas drinking Pisco Sours – my favorite!
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 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 !
(that’s her SECOND empanada)
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 –
I don’t really know what my face is turning into but hopefully I’ll figure it out before I go home!
Walking home I found this tough guy
