Filadelfia, Paraguay, is a city of 20,000 German-speaking Mennonites, established in 1930, in the remote Chaco, a 5 hour drive from any larger city. It has a completely German feel.

To me much of Bogota looks like a northern industrial city in a post-war era, it even feels a bit like it; New wave feel with a punk-like attitude and sprinklings of Latin & Native American culture. I think this music video depicts the Bogota ambience quite well.

I attended a public high school in Chile in 1971, and a handful of my classmates had British heritage and names from immigrant ancestors in the late 1800s. The British were big players in the mining and railroad business at that time. One school classmate was named Addison Smith, but he did not know more that a couple of words or phrases of English!
