Chile

I have one time been to an other place, that almost is a nice a Greenland.
In the fall of 2002, just tree weeks after my father passed away,
my mother and I was invited to Chile, to se the start of a project,
my father help to start.
I have made a link to CECS, the science institute, my father collaborated with.
During our stay, my mother got a memorial plaque, and we saw the launch of the project.
During out our 11days visit, my mother and I, never found so much
kindness and help.
Our visit to Chile has been an adventure.
