CHILE

Chile is a country that can be best split into three geographic sections. The North, Middle and the South. These three sections greatly differ from climates, scenery and people. The south is home to Chilean Patagonia, stunningly beautiful lands with mountains, lakes, isolation and cooler weather. The Middle is home to the wine areas and the big cities. The North home to the driest desert in the world, giving uninterrupted views to the stars above.
