Los Pellines, Chile: “A magical place”

We have traveled to Chile, visiting Santiago, where I was invited to speak at Diego Portales University about the boom in digital media as a founding editor at CNET. On another trip we crossed the border into Chile from Argentina while visiting the Patagonia region. We enjoyed Torres del Paine National Park.

I did not know that a valley in Chile shared our name, however: “Los Pellines.” ROFLOL!

A video is below. The translation reads:

“Promotional video of Los Pellines valley. Images in aerial view.

We have to take care of this valley because it is threatened by hydroelectric companies that want to destroy it. Our purpose is to take care of this space for the education of children and young people of our country. More than 28,000 children and young people have visited Los Pellines, a magical and fragile space.
