A fitting farewell to Chile & a crazy hello to Bolivia

If any of you remember, we walked into Chile way back on January 28! Since then, we have had a great love affair with this country. Chile has some of the friendliest, most interesting people. People who are innately curious and who offer much in terms of their culture and of course their food! Let's take a walk down Chilean food memory lane.

Infused exposures is back!

We're back! It was my first time taking a 'vacation' to go 'home' so that was kind of weird but it was also pretty amazing to be able to make this opportunity happen. It was a bit of a whirlwind and time flew by for both of us but it was great seeing so many friends and family. I discovered I don't miss New York that much but I miss its people. Okay, so I missed burgers, pizza and bagels!! And real coffee! Now we are back to 'No es cafe' (Nescafe).

Infused exposures is going on vacation!

Wait, aren't we already on vacation? Yeah, it's just a vacation within the vacation!

Last week, we visited Chile's most colorful city, Valparaiso. If Chile, San Francisco, Brooklyn & Paris had a baby, it might be Valparaiso.

Now that I have your attention, no there wasn't an ACTUAL earthquake here in Chile, although the drink we tried is named for Chile's notorious past with these natural disasters. The earthquake we experienced was the 'Terremoto drink'. It's definitely not fancy enough to be called a cocktail!

Would you like some crazy with your may?

What's up with that title? Crazy with may? What does that mean?! Have I completely lost it? 6 months of traveling and now I've gone mad? No, I am simply referring to 'locos con mayo' and one of Chile's more humorous translations.

Do you want to discover the secrets of Mapuche cooking?

Who or what is Mapuche? Mapuche refers to the indiginous people in Chile comprising about 10% of Chile's total population (a smaller amount live in parts of southwestern Argentina too). The Araucanía region in Chile is home to the largest concentration of these people with 80% of the Mapuche people living there

Top tips for visiting the northwest of Argentina

Visiting the northwest of Argentina was one of the highlights of our trip in South America so far. However, I found it a bit daunting when planning our time in this region. There is so much to see and do, where do you start? We knew we wanted to rent a car for sure to give us freedom and flexibility but for how long? Where would we rent the car? I scoured the internet and guide books for answers.

Cabo Polonio Hostel; the ultimate place to stay in town

Windswept and out of time, Hostel Cabo Polonio transports you to another time and place. The hostel is nothing more than wood and straw topped with a corrugated tin roof which looks as though it may blow away at any moment. Hammocks swing lazily in the ocean breeze.

TBC restaurant, Tigre

Since Tigre was our first stop in Argentina, we couldn't wait to have some famous (and rightfully so) Argentinian beef. The ill-named TBC restaurant, did not disappoint. Although it's located on the Paseo Victorica, which is the main road that strolls along the waterfront, it is a bit under the radar and hidden, due to the giant ivy covered walls that surround it, concealing it slightly.

Behind the walls, revealed a grand mansion, tastefully decorated. We were led to the spacious porch where diners could sit and enjoy the exquisite beef while sipping their Malbec wine. Service was attentive and we were seated on the porch right away

Best laid plans, the possible removal of Uruguay and the most important thing

I had the best intentions. I was researching the food in Argentina and had already picked out a perfect little Argentinian place in Brooklyn to try a sample of this country and share my findings with you. I thought to myself, as soon as I returned from my travels, I would be on top of it.

Alas, now it's been a long time since my last post. A really long time. There are a few reasons for this, some good, some bad. April was a hectic month for me but in the best possible way. Traveling around, visiting some of my favorite places and seeing some of my favorite people. As good as April was though, May came and proved to be it's evil twin opposite.
