"Ambos países se profesan un respeto mutuo", decía el vicepresidente estadounidense, Josep Biden, quien hace dos años escogía precisamente Chile para su primer viaje oficial a Latinoamérica.

El próximo día 21 Obama llegará con un agenda muy apretada, porque en apenas 24 horas tratará con las autoridades chilenas sobre energía atómica,

Miami County ties to rescue of Chilean miners


Peter Lewis raced along the narrow Chilean roads and byways en route to his destination.



Glancing at the clock, he knew it would be close.


There were only a few hours to spare, and time was a shrinking resource. It took 11 grueling hours, but at long last Lewis and the rest of ABC’s “Nightline” news crew arrived on site, a focal point for the entire world. On Tuesday, Oct. 12, Lewis and the crew arrived at the San José Mine only hours before the commencement of the successful rescue effort of 33 Chilean miners, trapped below ground for

Permanent Link is here.

By Jeff Gulley

As the world watched and cheered the safe rescue of 33 miners in Chile, Osawatomie native Peter Murphy Lewis stood just a short distance away.

“It was just unforgettable,” he said. “It was life changing. It was similar to the earthquake in Haiti but everything here was positive.”

Lewis, a lecturer in political science at the University of Chile, was on site as the miners were rescued, working as part of an ABC news crew who contracted with him last Tuesday.

Melia Patria, pictured above in Chile, was in Santiago on February 27 for another assignment when the 8.8 magnitude quake struck.

With surrounding airports damaged and closed, American news crews scrambled to access the quake devastation from neighboring countries.

Postquake: Unease, and Wedding Bells, In Chile

It is a bright, summery Saturday morning in Santiago, and at the Catedral Metropolitana de Santiago, the groom is becoming nervous. Less than 12 hours beforehand, the strongest earthquake to hit Chile in a generation rocked the capital, and all morning, local radio stations have carried news that although the city's modern structures emerged largely unscathed from the tremor, Santiago's sacred spaces did not fare as well. A few blocks away, the bell tower at Divina

Time Magazine Interview - Quake Response Doesn't Live Up to Chile's Self-Image

The reports of looting in Chile's earthquake-ravaged cities run counter to the country's vaunted sense of Swiss-style order. But overconfidence may have tripped up the government as it sought to project its newly minted membership in the league of developed nations.

The troops themselves were rather green, according to Peter Murphy Lewis,

WHAT would Pablo Neruda say? The Chilean Nobel-prize-winning poet and devoted Communist had a love-hate relationship with his hometown of Santiago, Chile, which he once described as “asleep for eternity.”


A few years ago, many travelers would have agreed, stopping just long enough to change planes for more promising adventures in Patagonia, on Easter Island or in the Andes. But now, after a
