A Shoestring called Chile

The entry below is a synopsis of our speakers talk on 10th July 2019.

An outstanding presentation was given by Harry & Kath Gilbert at the latest meeting of the Cullercoats Men’s Club entitled “A Shoestring called Chile”.

The digital projection show was about a trip up and down Chile in 20177 which is 2600 miles long and between 50 to 250 miles wide in parts, they visited several areas in the country e.g. Atacama Deseret some parts of it have not had any rain since records began and it is known as the driest area in the world.

Chile has about 500 volcanoes considered active, 60 of which have had recorded eruptions in the last 450 years the largest is Nevado Ojos del Salado which is 22,615 ft high. Huerquehue National Park was also shown this area is Cath’s favourite in all the places she had visited. Pictures of the local wildlife and scenery were amazing.

A very good morning for all our members who thoroughly enjoyed the presentation.

Questions followed on several points to conclude a very entertaining morning.

The whole presentation was very humorous throughout and had the men in continual laughter.
