La Piojera – The Maestros of the Chilean Terremoto!

A Terremoto is one of the most famous alcoholic drinks in Chile. A Terremoto, otherwise known as an earthquake in Spanish, contains: Pipeño (fermented wine), pineapple ice cream, and grenadine. While there are many different varieties of this potent beverage, one Chilean bar is known for the perfect Terremoto and that bar is called La Piojera.

La Piojera is conveniently located near the Central Market in Santiago. While the neighborhood can be a tiny bit sketchy in the evenings, once you are inside the bar, it is reasonably safe. However, keeping an eye on your wallet is never an adverse idea. Within the bar, you can order a variety of Chilean traditional foods, drinks, and ultimately, enjoy an authentic Chilean bar experience!

What makes La Piojera very unique is the true local atmosphere that you will encounter. Typically, you can listen to a live traditional guitar performance as you enjoy your meal or sip on your beverages. It is a well-accepted fact that if one is going to Santiago, they must pay La Piojera a visit. If you are looking for a true Chilean atmosphere along with an entertaining story to tell your friends back home, La Piojera provides extremely affordable drinks, and most importantly, a dose of the "real" Chile.

Hello Readers! For those of you who don’t already know me, my name is Jacquelyn Vadnais and it is a pleasure to meet you! Per the request of many friends, I am finally taking their advice and blogging about my international experiences. To give a background of myself, I just recently finished a JD/MBA from Suffolk University in Boston and have decided to pack my bags and emigrate to Latin America immediately!Many people have asked me why on earth I decided to move to Latin America after finishing such a prestigious program, however, once you get to know me you will see that I am truly world traveler at heart who gets such joy from experiencing fantastic cultures around the world. This is the reason that I have traveled to 50 countries (and counting!) in my life and have lived in 10 (and also counting!)I plan on giving my readers a first-hand guide on how to travel beyond the guidebook and truly experience where you are visiting and/or living for a time through the lens of a local. Based on my experiences with international culture, world heritage sites, delicious global cuisine, and diverse wines, I plan on sharing with you a piece of my unique adventures. These adventures have truly provided me with an invaluable world class education that is arguably equally as essential as the education that I received in the classroom.
