Today was Chile’s Bicentennial anniversary (September 18, 1810 marked the beginning of the struggle leading to the country’s independence). Planning for this highly anticipated celebration has been in the works for nine years.
Chileans celebrate their Independence Day at locations called fondas, which are typically set up in parks and include music, dancing, food, drink, shopping and more. Here’s one with a clever name in Santiago. Translation: The Jane Fonda. The workout video queen would be disappoinged, however — the only real exercising done here is the lifting of beverages to your mouth.
