SOUTHLANDERS' TALES --- STORIES FROM AROUND THE GLOBE

Southland Girls' High School pupil
Jamiee Thompson is living the life of a
Chilean in the South American
capital of Santiago. The 18 year old
caught up with reporter Louise
Berwick about her life in Chile.
Southlanders are a globe-trotting bunch, so we
have started a new series called Southlanders'
Tales. We're looking for Southlanders overseas
doing interesting things or living in interesting
places. We'd also look at former Southlanders
achieving real success elsewhere in New Zealand. If
you know of anyone, please get in touch with us:

A year to perfect
Where are you?
I am living in Santiago, Chile
What are you doing there?
I am on a Rotary Youth Exchange living with a
local family, attending high school and
integrating myself into the Chilean culture as
much as possible.
Why did you choose to go there?
I wanted to continue learning Spanish which I
studied at school. The South American lifestyle
really appealed to me; they have a huge focus on
family and friends, and centre themselves around
food and fun.
How long have your been living in Chile?
I arrived in late January and I will return home in
What is your favourite thing about Chile?
The family I am living with now, live in a suburb
which is at the bottom of the Andes. On one side of
the house we have a gorgeous view of the
mountains and the other looks over the city.
Being from a small town, I thought living in a city
with a population bigger than New Zealand would
be a challenge but I love knowing I am somewhere
so huge but nature and the mountains are so
What is the worst and best thing you have
The worst is a raw seafood dish called ceviche; it
is served cold with raw onion and tomato and
very commonly eaten.
The best dish would be a type of caramel called
manjar. They put it in cakes, pancakes, biscuits,
What do you miss about Southland?
Southland roads and Southland drivers. Our
roads are in such good condition, they are wide
and have space for parking. I have learnt in Chile
that if there is no traffic coming, red lights are
apparently optional and hazard lights literally
mean you can stop anywhere (including the
middle of the road to take a cellphone call). Every
car I see has some type of damage and I am seeing
big business in moving here permanently and
opening up a panelbeating shop.
What was the hardest thing to get used to over
I have found it most difficult to adapt to the eating
and the eating times. Although breakfast is pretty
standard, weekend lunches are very late and
huge. Chilean people are typically quite small and
I just do not understand where all that food goes.
Can you speak Spanish now?
They say if you learn Chilean Spanish you don't
really speak Spanish at all; they have different
words for everything, lazy pronunciation and a lot
of slang. My understanding is good and I am
proud of my progress to date.
What advice do you have for other Southland
If you are lucky enough to have the opportunity,
go on exchange. If not, make the effort to learn
about other countries and cultures as much as
possible. If you have a foreigner in your school or
area, get to know them. You can learn just as
much about their culture as they can from you.
My exchange has taught me how small the world
is and how easy it is to be closed-minded to other
countries when it is so important to live as one.
