Churches in Chile
#9
I have a TON of photos I've taken in Chile; unfortunately, most have my name attached to them in the copyright identifier.

As for Chile itself, I am a bit biased as my wife is from there.   :P

I have travelled to many places throughout Chile, including: Some of the places I've visited were absolutely beautiful and pristine, offering some of the best views I've ever seen.  

We've also visited over a dozen wineries throughout the Casablanca, Maipo and Colchagua Valleys.  From time to time, my wife and I even host tours of wineries.

I don't think it would be at all hard for an American to live in Chile.  I've seriously considered doing it myself, especially at times during the winters here in the upper midwest. Still might, some day.  But you'll need to speak at least some Spanish (or rather, Chileno) as there are not a lot of English speakers down there.  The economy is vibrant, crime (at least violent crime) is low, and everyone is quite friendly.

I'll leave you with a fews photos....

Here is one I took near Villarica on my first trip down to Chile back in '06.

Here is one of Volcán Villirica, an active volcano near Pucón.

And I took this one atop the volcano shown above...
