Well, since I won the Albuquerque game (was it 75?) Here's my GTC :D

Hint: It's in Southern Chile ;)

More Clues

I see that there's someone near... No, it's not Valdivia... I wouldn't make it THAT easy :D Santiago? No way... too much water, too much green and the mountains are too low. :)

More clues:
-The city has about 5,000 inhabitants (yes, we do call that a city :p)
-It's a port
-It was destroyed by the 1960 quake
-It was a fort in the spanish colony

One last pic:

Let's re-examine the clues, and hopefully get a good (really good) map or atlas (in which small chilean cities do appear)

I have given these clues:
-It's in southern Chile (yet people said Valparaiso and Santiago, which are in central Chile)
-The city has about 5,000 inhabitants(hence you need a good atlas, otherwise it won't appear)
-It's a port
-It was destroyed by the 1960 quake
-It was a fort in the spanish colony

One more clue:
-Cruise ships do get to this city (a few per year) and people can go down from the cruise ship and can get to Valdivia easily.

Now i've said too much though....

I saw an excellent PBS travel show on Chile last week. The only places I can remember in the south were a place settled by Germans in the 1800s, Pueto Montt or Temaco (sp?).

Is it either? Chile looked like a fantastic country, by the way.

Forget the Germans and the Spanish, most of the country will soon be settled by giant sea-blobs.

It's not Puerto Montt, nor Temuco.

Gee.. I thought it was almost settled a few posts back... But you guys went for bigger cities... (Puerto Montt and Temuco are both bigger than Valdivia) although I said it was a SMALL city of 5,000 inhabitants :p

Yum. Beer! Why is the Chilean beer label in German, though?

Thanks for the prize. You won mine (GTC 75, Albuquerque), now I won yours. Who's next?

The slogan is in german, because the origin of the family that founded it is german. And Valdivia has many other stuff related to german, due to the influence from the colonization of these areas in the 1800's. It was a state controled colonization, and they sent people to germany to bring people to Chile (to Valdivia and nearby).

Of course Valdivia dates way back, at least the first foundation, in 1552, was just spanish.

Dos Equis is the same way. German Brewmeister established himself in Mexico and employed/exploited (depending on your political slant) the locals into making beer with him.

...why was I reading beer labels instead of hitting on chicks?...

Beer thirty-five... I know there's a bottle of Jack around here somewhere...
