Chile and New Zealand Two countries separated by the biggest ocean, with different people, culture, language, etc. and i I'll relate the main differences between my loved Chile and Kiwi-land. Chile, a country in America (America is not only USA, but the continent), occupying a long and narrow coastal strip wedged between the Andes Mountains and the Pacific Ocean, whose capital and main city is Santiago. It has 16.5 million inhabitants and the official language is Spanish. Cultural Differences: Parties In Chile we dance at parties. The main music since 2003 has been "reggaeton" (Daddy Yankee and stuff) and techno. They start from 11 p.m. or 12 am and finish at 4 or 5 am, sometimes, the party could finish in a pub. In summer, the parties never finish. The alcohol is a lot cheaper than in New Zealand, and we have a national drink (the best) called "pisco", that we drink with lemon or with coke, and you can buy a bottle of pisco with a coke for less than 8 dollars. School In the most of the schools students have to wear uniform (polo t-shirt or shirt and tie, long pants, etc.) especially in private schools. In my case, I have to wear a tie most days and one or two days per week, the P.E. Uniform. We have more than twelve compulsory subjects, like Maths, Spanish, History, Physical Education, etc. And in the last two years, we have to choose one of these three topics: biology (biology 2, chemistry 2 and maths 2), maths (maths 2, chemistry 2 and physics 2), or humanities (Spanish 2, History 2 and Philosophy 2). but we still have some compulsory subjects. We have tests all the time. We can bring cellphones and I-pod at school. Food We do not have dinner often, only for special occasions. We have instead, a big lunch (like a New Zealander dinner) between 1 or 3 p.m., and later like an English tea, with tea, coffee or milk, and bread and stuff,
