Chile Miners Finally Home

The world watched and waited. Nearly 1 Billion people around the world tuned in to watch the last of the miners arrive at the surface of the Minera San Esteban Primera SA’s San Jose copper and gold mine.

One of many talking heads with media power house CNN said over and over again that this event was like watching events from the moon.

One look at the terrain in the area shows that the moon comparison is not that far off.

I don't know if it could be anymore isolated or barren looking.

Good to hear that all miners and the rescue team are back up on deck. And without any doubt the chat that went up everytime someone came out of the mine was one of the best examples of national pride I've ever seen.

"Chi! Chi! Chi! Le! Le! Le! Viva Chile!"

VIVA CHILE indeed!

Absolutely good job Chile. It's sad that my current outlook on all things USA made me doubt we could have pulled this off.
