The most interesting difference we noticed was how large Chilean families interact in moments of celebration. We had heard tell of the loud banter and teasing, but seeing is believing. They picked on each other, affectionately of course, SO much more than a family from the states. Our poor little sensitive US hearts would have exploded five minutes in. Its not just with siblings either, mom, dad, uncle Jorge all pick and tease. I kind of enjoyed it, nothing says I love you like a good roast, especially when you are getting married.
