Chile is a country in the southwest of South America. Chileans call their homeland "El ultimo rincón del mundo" - the last corner of the world. And there is no doubt about it, because if you look at the map of South America, you will see a country 4,300 kilometers long, nestled like a snake against the Pacific Ocean. If you want to reach Chile by sea from Europe, you have to be prepared for a long journey, because even after the construction of the Panama Canal, this country is still 15,000 kilometers away.
