Antofagasta – Chile review

[for English version scroll down below pictures]

Ultimul review pe anul asta , plec sa mai iau material nou de scris. Antofagasta , un oras de marimea Constantei , capitala miniera a Chilei este un oras foarte frumos situat intre munte si ocean , iar in spatele muntelui incepe un desert urias . Zona si orasul au fost castigate  de Chile in razboiul cu Peru iar avantajele masivelor minereuri de cupru se vad si astazi. Desi municipalitatea se intinde pe orizontala cu cladiri mici in centru exista o zona moderna de turnuri inalte iar faleza orasului este pur si simplu incredibila. Tot orasul incurajeaza activitatile in aer liber , pe faleza si prin zona de promenada vezi la tot pasul piste de biciclisti , aparate publice de fitness , terenuri de fotbal , tenis , bachet , in aceste zone se difuzeaza muzica relaxanta iar pe plaja se vad zone publice special amenajate pentru petreceri nocturne. Desi de scump , berea fiind vreo 4-5 dolari si salariile sunt pe masura , daca te lauzi ca ai vreo 1500 de dolari salariul nu o sa impresionezi prea multa lume. Cred ca daca mi-ar fi oferit cineva un job bun acolo sa stau ca expat nici nu as clipi si as accepta.

My last review for this year, going back to work to get new writing material. Antofagasta, a city the size of Constanta, the mining capital of Chile,  is a very beautiful city situated between the mountains and the ocean and just after the mountain behind starts a huge desert. The hole area and the city was won by Chile from Peru in the pacific war and the advantages of the  massive deposits  of copper ore can be seen today. Although the municipality is developed  horizontally with small buildings , in the center there is a modern district with highrise  towers and the city sea front promenade is simply incredible. The  city encourages outdoor activities, and by the seafront promenade you can see bicycle lanes everywhere, public equipment fitness, football, tennis, basketball courts and in these areas you can hear  relaxing music , plus on the beach sites  there are zones specially equipped for night parties. Although expensive, beer is about 4-5 dollars the salaries are also big , if you boast about $ 1500 salary will not impress too many people. I think if someone would give me a good job there would not blink and I accept.
