My Future/ Mi Futuro

This will be my future.. an empty classroom and my tiredness because I will have tried to teach  to some unbereable group of teenagers


Shiny and flashy / Brillante ( que brilla mucho)

The mall is on the foothills of Santiago...in the middle of oa rocky and dry hill,  it looks flashy and sometimes  trashy  but some people ( who have tons of money) seem to enjoy living in the mountain like goats. I suspect that the architect wanted to mimic Miami, but Miami have sea and the hills of Santiago only have rocks, dusts and dry bushes.  Grass and palms don't look natural, this is a fake and phoney deconstructed space.  No offense, this is only my opinion.


oops, my mistake/ lo siento, un error lo comete cualquiera

That was a great picture,  I swear it... but my finger was faster than my eye. This my tipical photo mistake. Thanks God there are digital cameras, otherwise I would lose hundreds of pictures :) / Este es mi error típico.  Que bueno que existen las cámaras digitales sino, perderia cientos de fotos.


"little bride"/ "noviecita"

Little girls used to receive their first communion dressed like beautiful little brides, but nowadays few girls make their first communion and almost all of them receive this sacrament wearing  their school uniforms or a plane white robe instead. This picture is an anachronic piece of reality / Las niñas solian hacer su primera comunion vestidas como noviecitas, pero ahora pocas niñas hacen la primera comunión y la mayoría solo usa el uniforme escolar o una tunica blanca. Esta foto es una anacronica imagen de la realidad


Saint Marthe/ Santa Marta

I made it up, I don't know how to translate Marta. No se como traducir Marta. Lo inventé


Minnie Mouse

A Halloween Costume.. Yes, it is true, Chilean people also celebrate Halloween. / Difraz de Halloween. Aunque no lo crean, tambien celebramos Halloween



BatiCristo Superstar / Super Star BatChrist

(He looks like a mixture between Batman and a JesusChrist. Weird and Funny at the same time)

Baticristo que estas en el pedestal,
santificado sea tu nombre ( o el mío quizas )
cumpleme mis deseos pero no me hagas sufrir las consecuencias
ayúdame a no procrastinar y a levantarme temprano con gusto
libráme de todo multa si me atraso en el arancel mensual
y dale crédito a mis amigos que no tienen


a Tourist in Mars / Una Turista en Marte

This is Mars. I 'm a foreigner here, a "guest" disguised like a  tourist who takes pictures of the landscape/ Esto es marte. Solo soy una extraña  que saca fotos  disfrazada de turista.


The paradise is on the other corner / El paraiso en la otra esquina

Where is the paradise? It seems that it is in Vitacura...  You should live in Santiago to understand this post, but  some parts of the city look like a whole different universe and sometimes  the people who don't live there ( like me ) feel themselves like extraterrestrial being visiting the Earth for first time.
It would also  help   a lot  to understand this note if some of you have read Mario Vargas Llosa's book " El paraiso en la otra esquina" / The paradise in the other corner ".
¿Donde esta el paraíso?... Parece que esta en Vitacura o en algun planeta parecido a ese...


You should wait for the green traffic light

 If you don't want to die in the middle of the street because a car  has crushed over your little body... ( that is my worst nightmare ) / Mi peor pesadilla, morir atropellada en medio de la calle... Juan Segura vivió muchos años


Women's prision / Carcel de Mujeres

Ironically, Women's prision is located in front of Pontificial Catholic University 's Campus San Joaquin and likewise  PUC's facilities, it is easier to get into it than to get out of it ( methaphorically speaking).
Ironicamente, esta justo frente al  campus San Joaquin... facil entrar, dificil salir ( ¿ una cárcel metáforica?)


I wish I had live in France in 1968 / quisiera haber estado en francia en 1968

                                                             " Students for Chile "
May, 1968.. does it ring a bell for you? / Mayo del 68.. ¿ les suena conocido?


" 100 hundred years of pentecostal revival in Chile "

Sorry, I'm not a good translater. is revival  correct? has " avivamiento"  a different  english equivalent ?
 (espero que se entienda)


Santiago, Holy patron Saint of the city / Santo Patrono de la ciudad

The City was named after him, its complete name was Santiago del Nuevo Extremo. Spanish Conquerors were quite witty ,  werent' they?. /  La ciudad se llama Santiago por él... ingeniosos los españoles eh-


Everything is Telly / todo es tele

·                                                           "T.V embeds you"


Primordial Graffitto / Graffiti primordial

Ladies' restroom. San Joaquin Campus,  PUC.
Baño de mujeres. Campus San Joaquin.

 discarnate graffiti are always at the restroom,     / los graffitis mas descarnados siempre estan en el baño.  
p.s:  This is not the original title of the picture. It was supposed to be named " Sexual Education at the PUC" but I've just remember that  all the posts  uploaded here are posted at my facebook profile too... and some of my college teachers  and schoolmates  are my "facebook friends"... It would have been a little complicating or not. Probably,  I'm just overreacting.


cementerio bicentenario ( Bicentennial Cementery

Yup, everybody celebrated the bicentennial, even those who are not here anymore / Todos celebraron el bicentario, incluso aquellos que ya no están aca.


The power line again / otra vez el poste de la luz

 The black cat is mine. I hope it doesn't bring me more bad luck. / el gato negro es mio. Espero que ya no me traiga mala suerte
