Almost everything is ready for El Celler de Can Roca’s historic visit to Chile, which will take place in just a bit over a month, from August 28th through September 4th. The Roca brothers are working on the final details of the menu they will offer during the dinners served at the nation’s capital.
For Chileans, stars have become a valuable natural resource, capable of attracting millions in investments in the shape of the most advanced astronomical observatories, which have populated the arid Atacama desert landscape little by little. Thanks to them, scientists from across the world can enlighten humanity with their discoveries about galaxies, exoplanets and different interstellar events.
The fact that a long and narrow country like Chile - where going from one end to the other is an adventure in itself – dares to explore beyond the established limits, moving its border to the north and the south in order to reveal new terroirs with new climates, land and winemaking methods speaks to a country of renewed youth where diversity is the name of the game.
Summer is finally here! While many of us may picture ourselves jetting off to a tropical island to do nothing but enjoy cocktails while bathing in a secluded beach… the truth is that, unfortunately, due to a lack of money and time, some of us will have to save our dreams for later and spend the summer in the city. But, hey, it’s ok! There are thousands plans waiting for you - low-cost, even for free - and you probably didn’t know anything about them.
Over 6,000 people attended the largest event about cooperation and development in Europe. Organized annually by the European Commission in Brussels, this year’s European Development Days were held on June 15 and 16. With the active participation of BBVA Microfinance Foundation (FMBBVA), the main topic of the event was the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.
Summer just started and you’re already dying to get out of the unbearable heat in the city. You’d like to go rest on the beach, but you tend to procrastinate and leave things to the last minute, even more so when you travel. Not to worry, you’re still in time to find the deal you’ve been dreaming of.
In July, five countries in the Americas celebrate their declaration of independence: the U.S., Venezuela, Argentina, Colombia and Peru. All of these countries benefited from the French Illustration and subsequently by the U.S. independence and the French Revolution.
We know you’ve been waiting for that trip to the beach, to that country you’ve never visited before, or to the place with fresh, clean air. But you also probably don’t want to come back broke. It’s hard to manage money when you’re away from home! We don’t know what we spent our money on or who paid for what.
