Santiago - Post Report Question and Answers

Do you recommend any books or movies about this city/country for those who are interested in learning more?

I'd read up on history books of the time Allende came to power. The Museo de la Memoria is a most once you get here. Discussing the rule of Pinochet, or Pinocho as he is called, will invariably come up at some point with the locals. You should know the basics. - Jun 2019

Any travel guides, A Nation of Enemies: Chile Under Pinochet (Norton Paperback), and, The Pinochet File: A Declassified Dossier on Atrocity and Accountability (National Security Archive Book) . - Oct 2014

The following books are excellent, brilliant, fantastic, by Isabel Allende:My Invented Country (explains Chile and is hilarious); Ines of My Soul (the fictionalized history of the founding of Chile); and the all-time classic House of the Spirits. - Apr 2009
