Calling Home from Chile

From Sunday Morning, 10:35 am on 7 August 2022

Chile's going through a time of transition at the moment as liberal elements in society try to change a constitution which was the legacy of the former dictator Augusto Pinochet. Julian lives just outside the capital, Santiago. It's inland, although within reach of beaches, and for tourists it's also easily within reach of skiing resorts and some top international vineyards. After growing up in Palmerston North where both his parents taught at Massey, his own tertiary qualifications after he left Awatapu College came from universities in London and Canada. Julian's dad's from Christchurch originally but his mum's Canadian.
