¡Feliz "Dieciocho" Chile!
The "Fiestas Patrias" (Patriotic Holidays) in Chile begin far ahead of the eighteenth (dieciocho) of September with asados (barbecues), the traditional cueca dance, and family get-togethers. As the flag-waving and festivities culminate with parades hitting the streets of Santiago this week, we thought we'd celebrate (at least from afar) with a visual tour of the South American country.
These images will take you through the country's world renowned vineyards, breathtaking Andes mountain range, chilling Patagonia, and scorching deserts. So grab a glass of Chilean sauvignon blanc and some choripanes (sausage and bread) and come enjoy a visual adventure to the "end of the world" and back:
