Chile Photos

Recommended Posts

amigos mios

poco a poco iré mostrando fotos de algunos paisajes chilenos. Conozco muy poco mi propio país, pero me gusta sacar buenas fotos a donde vaya.

Comienzo mostrándoles la salitrera más importante de Chile, Humberstone, que lamentablemente ya no funciona debido a la existencia del salitre artificial.

De acuerdo a la cronología que aparece en una foto, la salitrera comenzó a explotar caliche en 1862. En 1934 cambia de nombre a Santiago Humberstone, y paralizó su trabajo en 1960. Desde 2005 es "Patrimonio Mundial de la Humanidad" y fue restaurado para la visita a público. Humberstone está ubicado en la Primera Región de Tarapacá, está en el extremo norte de Chile, a unos 1800 km.

En su época era un pueblito que tenía de todo... teatro, inglesia, piscina, hotel, colegios, comercio, etc... a pesar de lo pequeño que fue en cantidad de habitantes (3700 personas) tenía prácticamente de todo y con una calidad de vida y organización impresionante.

my friends

I will go gradually showing pictures of some Chilean landscapes. Know very little about my own country, but I like to get good photos wherever you go.

Start showing them the most important nitrate Chile, Humberstone, who unfortunately no longer works due to the existence of artificial nitrates.

According to the chronology that appears in a photo, the nitrate began to exploit caliche in 1862. In 1934 renamed to Santiago Humberstone, and stopped work in 1960. From 2005 is "World Heritage of Humanity" and was restored for the visiting public. Humberstone is located in the First Region of Tarapaca is in northern Chile, about 1800 km.

 

In its time it was a village that had everything ... theater, church, pool, hotel, schools, commerce, etc ... despite how small it was most populated (3,700 people) had all the necessary and with a quality of life and impressive organization.

 

the entrance, through the kindness of one person, enter free :rolleyes: but the entrance is $ 1500 (U.S. $ 2.5) for adults and $ 1000 (U.S. $ 2) for children

They had 2 or 3 halls with rooms on either side, these rooms were for single workers where the entry was forbidden to women. This part is not open to the public due to poor condition is

Es interesante que los museos se crearon en esos lugares. En nuestro país los monumentos ex comunista, las plantas importantes o lugares únicos en el mundo son totalmente ignorados. La mayoría de los lugares están en decadencia y nadie quiere que le presente un mínimo de esfuerzo para el lugar de recuperación o incluso para mantener su estado actual. Como ejemplo: el monasterio Voronet (única en el país debido a sus hermosos colores y diseños). Es lamentable que muchas cosas no se hacen para nuestro país y para muchas riquezas naturales de nuestra región.

 

Sin embargo fotos interesantes de Chile. Esperamos más!

It is interesting that museums were created in those places. In our country the former communist monuments, important factories or unique places in the world are completely ignored. Most places are in decline and no one wants to submit a minimum of effort for the place of recovery or even maintain its current state. As an example: the monastery Voronet (unique in the country because of its beautiful colors and designs). It is unfortunate that many things are not done for our country and for many natural riches of our region.

 

However interesting pictures of Chile. We expect more!

Este interesant faptul că au fost create muzee în acele locuri. În ţara noastră foste monumente comuniste, unize importante sau locuri unice in lume sunt complet ignorate. Cele mai multe locuri sunt în declin şi nimeni nu doreşte să prezinte un minim de efort pentru recuperarea sau chiar menţinerea lor starea actuală. Ca un exemplu: Manastirea Voronet (unic în ţară, din cauza culorilor sale frumoase si desenelor). Este regretabil faptul că multe lucruri nu sunt făcute pentru ţara noastră şi pentru multele bogăţii naturale ale regiunii noastre.

 

Cu toate acestea imagini interesante din Chile. Aşteptăm mai multe poze!

I'm sorry if I misled some of the readers when I said that Voronet Monastery is one of the monuments that no one takes care of. It was partially true - the monastery is now renovated, after 17 years of work and little help from the authorities responsible (it took only 4 monts and a half to build it).

********************************************************************************

Imi cer scuze in cazul in care am indus in eroare cititorii atunci cand am afirmat ca Manastirea Voronet este unul din monumentele de care nimeni nu are grija. A fost o afirmatie partial adevarata - manastirea a fost restaurata dupa 17 ani de munca si putin ajutor din partea autoritatilor responsabile ( manastirea a fost construita in 4 luni si jumatate).

por lo que veo, tienen paisajes hermosos alla, llenos de naturaleza. También veo muchos i30 jajaja

 

Chile también destina pocos recursos a la restauración de de zonas históricas o culturales. El mejor ejemplo es la Ciudad de Valparaíso, que es muy conocida... fue nombrada "Patrimonio Mundial de la Humanidad" y está que se cae a pedazos. Es una ciudad hermosa, muy pintoresca, pero sin el cuidado que se necesita.

 

&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&&

 

I see, are beyond beautiful landscapes, full of nature. I also see many i30 jajaja

 

Chile too few resources allocated to the restoration of historic or cultural areas. The best example is the City of Valparaiso, which is well known ... was named "World Heritage of Humanity" and is to be falling apart. It is a beautiful city, very picturesque, but without the care they need.

One more thing, if the authorities don't care this marvellous monasteries and other things, is only one reason => no cash from there!No cash ... nobody gives a flying shit about them, just like that!?It's all about money buddy, nothing more!

beautiful scenery!

 

ohh! black sea is close to Romania! why is it called black sea?

Por lo que sé, el nombre viene del color que se ve mientras lo mira durante las tormentas - el color es casi negro. Este mar tiene mucho de algas y debido a esto no se puede ver que en el fondo en ella. El Mar mediteranian por ejemplo, es bastante claro. Cuando quieres buscar profundamente en ella se puede ver el fondo, si el agua tiene 1 a 4 Metters, con el Mar Negro no puede hacerlo.

Si alguien tiene otra explicación, por favor, digala!

********************************************************************************

*****************

From what I know, the name comes from the color that you see while looking at it during the storms - the color is almost black. This sea has lot's of algae and because of this you can't see that deep into it. The Mediteranian Sea for example is quite clear. When you want to look deep into it you can see the bottom if the water has 1- 4 metters, with the Black Sea you can't do it.

If anyone has another explication, please do tell!

********************************************************************************

*****************

Din cate stiu eu numele vine de la faptul ca in timpul furtunilor marea are culoare aproape neagra. Marea Neagra are multe alge si din aceasta cauza nu poti vedea in adancul ei prea bine. Marea Mediterana de exemplu este o mare limpede. Daca vrei poti sa ii vezi fundul, daca apa are 1-4 metri, in Marea Neagra nu poti face asta.

Daca altcineva are o alta explicatie, va rog interveniti!

hola

el Dakar pasó muy cerca de Santiago el martes 12 de enero. Pasaron por una localidad que se llama "Huertos Familiares" y se quedaron ahi a descansar entre la etapa 10 y 11.

No me lo podía faltar, asi que fui a verlos junto con unos amigos del Club.

La verdad, no saqué muchas fotos con mi cámara porque se agotaron las pilas. Asi que le robaré algunas fotos que puso un participante en el foro.

Lamentablemente ese día hizo mucho mucho calor, asi que no pudimos estar mucho tiempo, además el recinto estaba cercado y sólo podíamos mirar desde afuera.

 

Espero que las fotos les gusten.

hi

Dakar passed very near Santiago on Tuesday 12 January. They passed through a town called "kitchen gardens" and stayed there to rest between stage 10 and 11.

I could not miss, so I went to see them together with some friends of the Club.

Not really took many pictures with my camera because the batteries were depleted. So I'll steal some pictures that put a participant in the forum.

Unfortunately, that day it was very very hot, so we could not stay long, plus the room was surrounded and could only watch from the sidelines.

 

I hope that photos they like.
