    Default Chile independence day!

    Viva Chile mierda!

    Happy Independence Day to all Chileans

    On the 18th of Sept 1810 the Chilean people declared their independence creating their first government.
    We Chileans celebrate this day called “ El Dieciocho” in a big way with folk dances, singing, great food and lots of drinking. The most popular drink in this period is called “chicha” which is made from grapes.

    Take a pick at our crazy geography.

    Not Football, actually although I did see it at the World Cup.

    I heard it first on the television when there was all that media coverage of the Chilean World Champion Hide and Seek Team

    Villarica, one of South America's most active volcanoes, erupted Tuesday around 3 a.m. local time in southern Chile near Pucon. The untamed giant is spewing heavy smoke into the air and treacherous lava surged down its slopes. Dutiful authorities evacuating thousands of people.

    I hope nothing bad will happen to the people living in the area. Once again nature shows us who is chef and who is waiter.

    In Chile we suffer greatly with natural disasters and in some cases even our neighbors from Argentina also suffers the consequences from the volcanic ash carried away by the win.
    I look at that volcano eruption and I think how something so beautiful can be so deadly.

    Writing of history.
    Do you believe everything?

    The miracle of Monte Verde!
    An incredible human journey?
    Center of evolution?



    What about e.g. the giant stone spheres of Costa Rica?:



    Or the [Out-of-Place] artifact "London Hammer" from Texas?:



    History writing ... Do you believe everything ???

    Back in Chile when I was young I used to go to the mountains with my family and many times I saw fossilized shellfish, massive snails and even foot prints of dinosaurs. It was so exciting to see all of that, I mean to find shellfish up high in the mountain was solid proof that all that was under water at some point in the past and you never know if that can go under water again.

    Check out the Cerro Ballenas.

    Most children are dreaming about holding a real fossil in their hands. The majority is not lucky enough. So it is a rare experience.

    Cerro Ballenas is really an exceptionally important location. It's the densest concentrations of fossil whales and other extinct marine mammals worldwide.

    On Ebay you can find a lot of other exciting items e.g. shark tooth fossils from Chile for the price of 5 crates of beer or 5 hours in a bodybuilding studio.

    One of our top stories today here in German news channels is the hot volcano eruption in Chile, reported by you:

    ===> https://www.gpwa.org/forum/leopolds-...tml#post786153

    Immediately afterwards they broadcasted test results of delicious cold chocolate ice cream.

    What a contrast!
