    They will learn a lot about Chile and about Mapuches. They just can talk with them because we live in front of them. As well they can visit a lot of really nice tourist-points and as we have a car, some places we can easily go together. As well you can practice spanisch because we both speak spanish as a nativ speaker.
    We are placed at a really quiet place, near to the village (10 minutes to walk) and has a lot of cultural movements. The view from our house is just amazing.
