***Alright I have really slacked some lately on my blog. However, I have been busy with good and productive things and am now updating my blog with several solid articles.
The country of Chile is dominated by two epic features: the Andes mountains in east and the Pacific Ocean in the west. The country is a country of extremes and diversity. Within Chile are a third of the worlds supply of copper. The country is a major producer of wine. A lot of people do not know that Easter Island is a special territory of Chile. The longest river in Chile is the Loa River. 17.2 million people live in Chile.
Chile has a third feature which is in reality a third great epic feature, the driest place on earth, the Atacama desert. Chile experiences horrible earthquakes and also has volcanoes. About 80 percent of Chile's land is mountainous and this comes with rich mineral resources. The highest point is 22,615 ft, Ojos del Salado. Located in South America, it borders Argentina, Peru and Bolivia.
The thing I like the most about Chile, is those Mediterranean parts looking out at the Pacific ocean. It is an isolated part of the world. When someone looks out of a villa at the Pacific, they our gazing at a vast ocean where the next dry land is thousand and thousands of miles away. Also, geography repeats itself poetically across the globe. Mediterranean spots exist across the planet, in Australia, South Africa, The Mediterranean, California, Chile as well as others. In all of these places, though, life becomes more relaxed than many other places. The climate is milder, not to hot or cold and the ocean is always near by keeping time. I saw a tv special where a host went to a cottage on an isolated beach and is what I think of first now when I think of Chile.
