Living in Chile
A long narrow strip between the Andes and the Pacific Ocean, Chile is a distinctively shaped country in South America, bordering Peru, Bolivia and Argentina. The nation makes claims to a few Pacific islands as well as 480,000 square miles of Antarctica, though these claims are not supported by the Antarctic Treaty designed to regulate international relations with regards to the Antarctic. Geographically, it can be split into five distinct natural zones, each with their own characteristics and climates. These range from the Atacama Desert which is the world’s driest, alpine and glacial climates as well as a Mediterranean climate in the centre; all in all, there are ten major climatic subtypes seen in Chile, but overall most of the country does experience four distinct seasons. Chileans are a mix of indigenous peoples and immigrants, mainly Spanish immigrants as other European groups found it to be too remote and far from home. 43.4% of Chileans in a study felt they possessed indigenous blood, whilst 40.3% had none. Throughout Spanish colonisation, the culture was largely dominated by Spanish tradition; however, there are Andean cultures and Mapuche cultures which have remained. This is largely depicted in the musical styles and the various cuisines which are on offer, due to the country’s topographical variety. There is a mix of intangible heritage including these traditions, and tangible heritage including architecture and archaeological finds. Of the latter, some are UNESCO World Heritage Sites including the Rapa Nui National Park and the mining city of Sewell, amongst others.
