|Santiago from Cerro San Cristobal|
I decided I need to be more aware of the news happening in my own backyard so I thought I would share a weekly or monthly (honestly , I don't know if enough exciting things happen here on a weekly basis :) review of the most interesting news stories in Chile. Though there are several news outlets online in Chile like the Santiago Times the best and latest stories actually come from the UK -the Telegraph and the Guardian. The Santiago Times english version is outdated. I love Chile news is a great website written in english but is offline a lot of times and the news is more blogish than news reporting. Biobiochile.cl is another site with an english version though if you want to get local news you need to use the castellano version and let google translate it for you. And This is Chile website
has some great info about traveling, living, studying, and doing business in Chile plus some news on culture, education, tourism, sports, science, and much more. A really beautiful website.
Since this is the first time I am posting news stories some will be older than this past week.
