  • What else ...

    What else ...

    Apart from the contact person, most other workers speak only Spanish, so it is an opportunity to immerse in the Spanish (Latinamerican) language. Also a way to see the alternative side of Chile, the more community-based side, the communty arts side, part of the movement to resist the neo-liberal system.
