Its life revolves around the train station where the train no longer comes, and the small population is dispersed.

CHILE, Carmen M. Rogers • The Pilgrim Mother’s adventures and travels do not recognize limits or borders. It might be in a store in San Martín de los Andes or in the picá de Concón [economical restaurant with excellent and abundant food], in an operating room, a stockbroker’s office, or she welcome you to the only house in a mountain range’s lost corner, or quietly in an elegant living room of that mansion; she is always there.
