Pure breezes blow across you,
And your field, embroidered with flowers,
Is a happy copy of Eden.
Majestic is the snow-covered mountain
That was given to you by the Lord as a bastion,
That was given to you by the Lord as a bastion,
And the sea that tranquilly washes your shore
Promises future splendour for you,
And the sea that tranquilly washes your shore
Promises future splendour for you.

Sweet fatherland, accept the vows
With which Chile swore at your altars:
Either you'll be the tomb of the free
Or the refuge against oppression
Either you'll be the tomb of the free
Or the refuge against oppression
Either you'll be the tomb of the free
Or the refuge against oppression
Or the refuge against oppression
Or the refuge against oppression. "Food in Every Country." Food in Chile. N.p., n.d. Web. 06 May 2013.

Y ese mar que tranquilo te baña Te promete futuro esplendor.
Dulce Patria, recibe los votos

Personal Thoughts After researching this country, I found many things that I thought were interesting, and some that weren't as much. The location itself is beautiful, though. I would love to visit many of the tourist sights I found. Although some of the holidays and other ceremonies look exciting, I didn't find any that really stood out to me. That being said, I think that there are some really cool events that take place in Chile, but I doubt I would travel to there for the festivals alone.
