Traveling to Chile


Traveling to Chile can be fun and difficult at the same time. Fun because you have SO MANY choices. Difficult because you don't know where to start! As a Chilean myself I haven't been in all the places I would've liked to visit, and now being far away I ask myself why didn't I visit them before.

I could suggest many cities to visit, however, all I will say is that every part of Chile has its beauty and exotic areas, depending on what you are looking for and what you like.

Watch the video below with a sneak peek of Chile from North to South:



This is Chile is  a useful website where you can find bilingual information about the country, tips, traditions and suggestions for travelers.



Santiago


People from Santiago are called "Santiaguinos" or "Capitalinos". Los capitalinos live a very busy life in the city. Between work, family, study and transportation, life gets really crazy and time for enjoyment is limited. This is why not everyone really pays attention to the things to do in the city. However, travelers do. 

Even though Santiago is polluted and has the same problems of many big metropolis around the world, I still love the history behind, the things to do and the fun areas around. Some Santiaguinos like to call it "Santiasco", which is  a made up word between Santiago and disgusting. However, I strongly disagree since I think Santiago has many things to offer. On the other hand, one of the business areas in Santiago, Vitacura, is called "Sanhathan" (after Manhathan) which I like it better than the other one. Although the transportation still needs to be improved, you can always move around the city using the subway (nice and clean) and not to worry about parking places or traffic. 

One of my favorite places to go is to the biggest city park in Latin America, Parque Metropolitano de Santiago,  and climb San Cristobal's Hill early morning.   You can always hike, bike or drive to the top of the hill. Once you are there, you MUST have a a glass of Mote con Huesillos as a reward for your effort, especially in Summer days. This drink is SO popular, that you can even buy it on the supermarkets as a dessert.






After that, and if you are still hungry, you can always go for lunch to el Mercado Central to enjoy fresh seafood or traditional Chilean food.  Walking around this place is very fun since you get to see traditional folklore characters such as "chinchineros" and Chilean Arts, Crafts and musicians.


Of course these are not the only two places you could visit in Santiago. Some others are: La Moneda, La Plaza de Armas de Santiago, La Catedral, El Museo Histórico, La Plaza Italia, El Cerro Santa Lucía, El Barrio Lastarria, El Parque Bicentenario and many more.

For example, I use Multicultural Kid Blogs to stay connected with other fellow bloggers, learn about their activities and see what's the latest in education. I also like Edutopia to read articles related to education, teaching, tips and technology.  I thought I will share these resources with you. Please add your own in the comments!

El huevo de chocolate helps you find all kind of rhymes, poetry, and jokes for children. Very fun to improve Spanish language, expand vocabulary and useful for Valentine's Day!

Sopaipillas chilenas



Sopaipillas,  sopapillas, sopaipas or cachanga are very popular between the hispanic people, especially in Chile, Perú, Argentina and Bolivia. This quick bread made out of leavened wheat flour, shortening and pumpkin is one of my favorites desserts during winter time.  

Some people like to think of sopaipillas as a doughnut or fried pastry. They are very similar to picarores and calzones rotos which they are also recipes form South America. 

The tradition in Chile is to make sopaipillas during winter  days, especially if it's raining. The shape is usually round with 2-3 holes in the middle or some fork's marks.  Some people like to have them with pebre (which is a type of spicy salsa made out of onion, tomato cilantro and banana pepper), mustard or chancaca sauce (made our sugar cane). 

Chancaca is not very common in the USA and can be difficult to find. Gringalicious has a post about how to make it in case you don't have any at home or close by. If you want to buy chancaca, check this web site with Chilean products in the USA or try Amazon.

When you use chancaca to soak the sopaipillas, then you'll be eaten sopaipillas pasadas.

There are many recipes of sopaipillas out there, however, I think this one from All recipes.com is the best match of a Chilean one, especially for pumpkin season! 

These are the other recipes I found in case you want to search some more:

Chilean School Traditions: Terra Cotta Air-Dry Clay and Wood Crafts Sticks



Many are the traditional arts and crafts that are done at Chilean schools. Terra Cotta Clay and Wood Crafts Sticks are a MUST and the most popular when it comes to the student's supply list. Every year, students all over the country do some modeling during art class or holidays.  

Mother's day is especially popular because of the traditional wooden jewelry box made with  craft sticks. There is no mother in Chile who has not received one of these boxes made by her child as a present.  See the link below to follow a step by step of how to make a wooden jewelry box with craft sticks. 




Pomaire is a small town in Chile that specializes in pottery using terra cotta clay. The name of this technique in Spanish is alfarería, which is basically ceramic art. 

In Pomaire, generations of families have dedicated their entire lives to ceramic art using various techniques, exclusively hand made. Since the crafts are elaborated with clay extracted from the same sector, it is considered one of a kind in Chile. This is why terra cotta clay is very cheap and safe. Children can play with it with no danger of "cooking" their creation since it is air-dry, and it can be easily reuse adding water to the clay. 

Food is very popular in Pomaire,  it is so good that I could write another post about it, and still not cover everything. This time I will just say that empanadas and pastel de choclo are my favorites ones.

The picture below shows different products made with terra cotta. They really add a touch of authenticity to my kitchen. Guests are curious about them, especially for  "real piggy bank" because you really have to break it in order to get your money.  

It was nice surprise to find the two little pigs from the picture  in a store close to my house. I could't believe that I was holding two chanchitos made out of terra cotta from Chile. Of course I got a couple since the believe is they bring good luck.

Traditional Nursery Rhymes and Games From South America Part II



This post is dedicated to games only.  Being that there are so many traditional games out there, I will continue with even more ganes in a third post.  Stay tuned if you want to refresh your memory!

I would have written and explained every single one of them, however, I feel the videos below are very self explanatory, even if you don't speak Spanish. 


Caballito Bronze

This game needs between 8-10 players. Generally men, but not exclusive to them. I remembered playing this game with girls only. ;)  

Half of the players will have to create "human tables" creating a line and holding each other's legs.  The first one uses a pole as a support. The rest of the players will have "to mount" the "human table" until they resist counting to 11. If one of the "human tables" does not resist, they lose and they have to do it again. On the contrary, if they resist, it's time to switch places.


La Payaya

To play this game you need five small stones or tokens and speed skills. See the videos to learn how to play.







Corre el Anillo

Between 5-6 children sit next to each other with their hands in a prayer position, but horizontally. 

Another player has a ring between his/her hands in a prayer position as well. This player uses his/her hands to go through each player's hands and sing the song, and carefully, give the ring to one of the players without being caught by the others. Watch this short video to see how it works: 


Corre el anillo
 por un portillo
pasó un chiquillo
 comienzo huesillos.

¡A todos les dio,
 menos a mí!

 Eche prenda 
señotira o caballero
 ¿quién lo tiene de usted?






El Luche

This game has different names depending on the country:

Spain: tejo, calderón, cox cox, futi, traquenele, telazarranea, reina mora, pata coja, infernáculo, pitajuela, mariola.

Argentina: rayuela

Colombia: golosa o carroza.

Portugal: juego del diablo o juego del hombre muerto.

Italy: mundo

Venezuela: el juego de la Vieja.

México: avión o bebeleche.







El Elástico

For this game you need a rubber band (or a pantyhose) tied at the ends, and three players. The length of the rubber band depends on how big is your space and how flexible the band is.

Two of the players hold the rubber band between their legs and the third one jumps according to the version they are playing.

During this game you may find:

a) Jump inside and then outside of the rubber band.

b) Jump and leave the legs outside the rubber band. The rubber band will stay inside the legs.

c) Stepping in the rubber band with one feet.

d) As the game goes on, the players holding the rubber band should raised the height to increase the difficulty. The height can be at the heel, knee, thigh and waist.

Mi Sala Amarilla has pictures to explain how each version of the game works. You can also watch this video to understand some more:
