Tomorrow I’ll be heading to Arica for giving a couple of talks in the Encuentro Linux which this year is held at the University of Tarapaca, this will be my first time in the city and I really hope to have the time for going to the Morro and enjoy the cool beach that I’ve only seen trough photos and TV.
Tomorrow also is the football match between Argentina and Chile, since the match is in Buenos Aires i can only see it trough the TV like most of Chileans will do it, I know that Fernando and Felipe are football fans too and they’ll see the match, so please guys if you read this… save a seat for me!

Today I went with my parents to Pomaire (spanish article) a town located at the west of Santiago, last time i visited Pomaire I was like 13 years old and i have a really good memories of it, like playing around with my sister Loreto and try out the famous empanada of 1.5kg (you can only eat one), at that time the town was like just one main street and a couple of stores and restaurants, but now it’s completely different there’s a bunch of places where you can eat and a lot of stores where you can find the most awesome pieces of clay handcraft. Today the town was really crowded because during these days we are celebrating our national holidays so everyone is looking where to eat some exquisite Chilean food. We had a great lunch there, I ate a delicious pastel de choclo (corn pie) and drank a little of chicha and wine.
If you’re looking for a place close to Santiago where to spent a great time and eat some typical Chilean food you definitely should go to Pomaire. I hope to go soon again and not every 10 years.
Felices Fiestas Patrias!
I’ll be traveling to Curicó the Friday 28 of September to participate in the Free Software Day Event at the UTAL, If you are traveling that they from Santiago please drop me an email so we can go together, I’m planning to go by train, it’s more fast and since i have long legs is more comfortable for me

The 6, 7 and 8 of September the UAS of Temuco will be celebrate the Third Free Software Meeting, I’ll be there the Saturday for giving a little talk about developing apps with Mono. The people of the South of Chile are really kind and there is a lot of Free Software users so for sure it will be an awesome event. See you all there!
The Ubuntu BugSquad will be also celebrating the Wednesday 22 of August a Hug Day that will be focus in improving Ubuntu and GNOME, this means that we’ll have for first time, but not last the one, two bug killers squads celebrating together and giving a lot of love to our lovely project, simply awesome!.
