I have just returned from my expedition to San Pedro de Atacama, of which I will have to relate later. For now I will tell you what will be one of my favorite memories of Chile:
We got off the bus we had been riding for 24 hours in Viña to be greeted by taxi drivers and tourism agencies. One man in particular asked us if we needed any tourism information. I being slightly offended (although I really had no reason to be) informed him we actually lived in Viña.
He smiled and then refered to us as "Viña marinas", the term for locals.
