Well, the public transport has improved considerably, since the era of yellow buses, at that time I never used to much, but used the metro. Now I occupy the Tran-Santiago every day to go to university.

The good of tran-santiago: Well, I'm not sure that I have no benchmark against which to compare with, but I like it because transhipments from bus to subway are free, so you spends less. I like that the students have less different price for shipment that is good because has not changed. Besides the new buses are more beautiful, I love that each sector of the city has its own colour I live in Zone G and his colours is blue. Another good point is the fact that it exist special corridors for the public transportation.

The bad points: the are many, but the most important is that the buses are filling up at the times of high demand, and because there are not sufficient quantity of buses, travel times become longer (I hate to wait the bus >.< ) but I think the system to pay with the Bip card is safer than the yellow buses because you don’t need coins to pay.

I think the spite of details this system can improve travel times and the frequency of buses or subway.

Animals are part of our lives, they give us your love and company, give us moments of joy. it is only fair that we also want the best for them but there are many cases where animals are victims of abuse and neglect and their abusers to escape punishment.
The reality is that: in Chile doesn’t exist laws in protection of the animal’s rights. Slightly over half of the population in Chile have a pet and theme is considering a part of the family. But some people don’t care theirs pets or abandoned them to their fate. when you have a pet you have a responsability with them, the animal abuse begins with the irresponsible owners. animals end up wandering the streets and suffer the consequences of the neglect of human. therefore it is important to take care of our pets because they also have life and feelings.

For some time ago I saw in the news in the tv the noticed of a protector of animals that kept the poor animals in appalling conditions, had no food or water and they were full of parasites. many people to protest at this abuse, and punishment for those responsible but for different charges to animal abuse. so I think that there should be formal laws for animal protection in addition to existing institutions and that people should be aware if you have a pet and not going to care as it is better not to have a pet.
