An Expat Talks about Living in Santiago, Chile

What is the name of the city or town that you are reporting on?

Santiago

How long have you lived there?

moved may 2005

What activities, clubs and organizations would you recommend to newcomers to help them meet others?

My experience from visiting the last 2 years is to just start a conversation with someone who speaks english. DON'T rush. They do things much slower in Chile then the US. Relax- and just let things happen. It is surprising how well you can get to know someone over a 10 minute conversation. Get a drink or coffee- whatever you do- If you want to make friends- DO NOT BE AFRAID TO MEET THEM.

In terms of religious, racial, economic and cultural diversity, are the people of this city or town diverse? Are they accepting of differences? Describe.

Of course- mostly catholic- few minorities for me to comment on that- wide spred economic groups. BUT again- MONEY is not a real issue. The world centers on friends and family.

What are the main industries in this city? What types of career opportunities commonly exist? How do most people find new jobs?

If you are bilingual then you have an advantage. Widespread occupations in banking, education, shipping. They are very advanced economically- but do not expect an american salary- teachers in public school make about $1000/mo.

In general, what are peoples' priorities in this city? For example, do lives revolve around work, family, socializing, sports, etc.?

Family- Friends- NOT MONEY If you like tennis and futball- it would even be better
