Cultural Differences

07- Cultural Differences in Chile

By Bryan Carroll CFMP, NTP, FAFS

March 29, 2017


For the past 2 weeks I have been on a crazy adventure to the other end of the world: South America. Specifically we spent some time at the southern tip of Chile, near Torres Del Paine which is a piece of Patagonia. Let's just say the cultural differences are just a little bit different than what I am used to! I wanted to share with everyone some of the differences in health and food that I took note of while down in this region. You can hear all about the differences in this episode of Cultural Differences in Chile.
