Chile is a country in South America that I know little about. It was full of surprises.
Our intrepid host started the show talking about Pinochet. I was shocked that Chileans do not hate us for that. Instead, they look with hope into a bright future.
Tony travels widely in this long, narrow country. He ends up in Patagonia, the end of the world, an unspoiled place he hopes is not ruined by progress.
