Miko the Kitty: "Discover Chile's National Dance..."

Miko the Kitty: The creation of a first Government Junta is an event of great importance in the history of most Latin American countries. To understand this, the reader must first understand that during the time of colonialism only Spanish-born individuals were allowed to participate in the government. September 18 in Chile symbolizes for this reason the initiation of Chile’s struggle for independence and self-governance.

In modern-day Chile September 18 marks the beginning of a two-day holiday known as “Fiestas Patrias” or “Patriotic Feasts.” The Fiestas Patrias are an expression of Chilean culture associated with a series of activities such as going to “fondas” (temporary local sales of food and drinks where you can enjoy the music of live bands) and Chilean rodeos (Chile’s national sport). Other typical activities include dancing the Cueca (Chile’s national dance) and having barbecues with friends and family. The Fiestas Patrias conclude on September 19 with the Great Military Parade of Chile, an event that takes place in the popular O’Higgins Park in Chile’s capital city, Santiago.

To end today’s destination enjoy a performance of the Cueca, Chile’s national dance. Don’t forget to explore the different tabs in Chile’s group to learn more about this amazing country. http://tinyurl.com/mbt5ktw
