Cultural Nuances: Chileans are more like Midwesterners than Mexicans

It’s been crazy busy here, in a mostly good way, but I thought another Startup Diary, Santiago Edition was about due.

One thing I get asked a lot is what people in Chile are like. I’ve been here four months, most of my time in Santiago, with a few days in Valparaiso / Viña del Mar and Concepción , so I can’t claim a huge representative sample of the country. On the other hand, over a third of the population lives in Santiago and about 5% more in Concepción.
