We feel like locals

CHILE | Monday, 22 January 2007 | Views [704] | Comments [2]

Ang and i have noticed that everywhere we go, its obvious who the touristas are - we often play spotto when we see a pack of yanks wearing bum bags and t-shirts with the American flag on them.

This doesnt happen so much to us, as we are both shorter than average so we fit in well & also the dark hair & features help us both. Randomly in the street, Chileans keep breaking out into Spanish to us both which helps us feel like locals!

Hola Hola
Must be nice not to be treated like a tourista! Maybe u can change your names: Lana Maria or Angela Fernanda or whatever is their local names. Once u learn the lingo they will never know! Maybe even the American Gringos will think u r Chilean. Probably should have taken an Aussie flag as a picnic blanket. Can send u one if u like! Luv u heaps..till the next time Mama xoxo
