What would life be like for a black person visiting Chile?

I'm considering going to work in Santiago, Chile. I'm black British and wondered how my experience would be for the 6 months I'd be there.

I think it would be great! It is unusual to see people of color in Chile so you would be unique!
Racism exists everywhere but here I've not heard much along those lines.
A smile and an attempt at spanish are always helpful no matter your skin color.

They will stare at you sometimes, but it's normal and it isn't in a bad way just curiosity. Wear a che Guevara top and you should be fine or better an Allende top when amongst the locals on the bus or train. They thought I was from Easter island lol and I'm Melanesian so I'm quite dark. Smile. Smile. And smile. chat to some girls, I never tried because I'm married, but let me know if you hav fun bro. Peace
