    Just returned from a trip there visiting Punta Arenas and Puerto Natales as well as Torres de Paine. As the article said the area exudes confidence and growing prosperity. Lots of British, German, and Australian tourist enjoying the sights and wildlife. Some really nice restaurants, coffee shops and luxury hotels too. Plus very nice welcoming people. You can still see Huasos on horseback with their dogs herding the sheep and there are plenty of wild animals and birds in a pleasant unpoluted landscape. We enjoyed our stay much more than we thought we would. Chile is a wonderful place to visit.

    Punta Arenas has piers, and urgently needs a REAL port.

    1@ Yes, last year was a good one in economic development, but sad in politics with the victory of a proved bad president......Anyway, we must go ahead with what we will have......
    Ah...!!! our local tipical camp labourer is called Ovejero (shepherd). The huaso is the tipical rural labourer from the central Chile with another kind of weather and geography.......

    2@ Yes, we need a real port more than 2 single docks indeed.
    Hope the authorities can admit that and give us the funds to build it ASAP.....
