Praying for the miners. I think I’ll have a vinito chileno too.

31 Aug

This story has a grip on the whole world. Everybody has been talking about it. Can you imagine being in a situation like this, underground and in a small space? I can’t! Maybe they don’t know they will be there for 3 or 4 more months.  But I know this: le están dando al mundo entero una clase de paciencia y determinación y fé.

And yet their only request is simple and patriotic: a little bit of chilean wine.

¡Fuerza Chile!! Que salgan pronto y que salgan sanos y salvos. In the meantime, por favor que les cumplan ese mínimo deseo. Un vinito chileno para estos caballeros!

Read the LA Times story here. 

Here’s an update from the NY; read about how they are organized to survive.
