Chile, a country made of copper

For all of you who didn't know (and I don't think many of you knew...), Chile is the main copper producing country in the world. I found this copper handicraft store in "Patio Bellavista" a tourist and cultural center in the Bellavista district. You can find many kinds of handicrafts, ranging from kitchen utensils to art reproductions. Please note the many copper engravings that mimic da Vinci's "Last Supper".

Spectacular. I once taught an exchange student who was from a copper mine in the Atacama desert. He was great and told us interesting stories about living by the copper mine/ in such a dry place.

No actually I had no idea Chile was the 1st copper producer in the world (the things you learn thanks to DP bloggers!)

So it's your 5th picture right?

How do you feel???

Louise: Did you know that the Atacama desert (in the north of Chile) is the driest desert in the world? It's even drier than the Sahara!

Eric: I feel great! I'm always thinking "what can I post today"?

Anne: Thank you! I'm quite happy actually!!!

Eduardo: I recommend you to do photo series (5-day) once a month or twice. They allow you to focus on a specific subject and to develop it further. I have done three series so far in Antigua Daily Photo: Guatemala's Cuisine, Antigua's Color Palette and Antigua Doorways just recently. Good luck on your DP.
