Greetings from Chile

I was expecting it to be really difficult to get this card sent from Chile, but I had sent Daniela GF UK a little earlier so she was kind enough to help me with this. ^_^ Thank you so much!

I find Chile a really interesting country as it has such varied geography.

The arid Atacama Desert in northern Chile contains great mineral wealth, principally copper. The relatively small central area dominates in terms of population and agricultural resources, and is the cultural and political center from which Chile expanded in the late 19th century when it incorporated its northern and southern regions. Southern Chile is rich in forests and grazing lands, and features a string of volcanoes and lakes. The southern coast is a labyrinth of fjords, inlets, canals, twisting peninsulas, and islands.
