I think at times many of us walk through life invisibly, make of it a mechanical routine and why not say it, sometimes quite tedious. However, this situation can reverse it patiently exploring what’s in each one of us. In the daily routine, we sobrellevamos a good part of responsibilities, commitments, chores, etc. So we sometimes locked in them doing our family and our own world environment. This consequence of the above-mentioned commitments and which we acquired with much affection. Hence my perspective comes the invisibility that doesn’t allow us to see and understand our environment and therefore we cannot understand certain phenomena that occur around us (cause and effect probably). In this context wish to go in what is the daily life of the inhabitants of the Region of La Araucania (my region) and more specifically the Pinto fair that is a market where several typical products from our region are marketed. East (Davinson and Ketterer, 2006: 9) It is a sample of the processes of (DIS) cultural integration than daily will experience in this region. Following with my previous view point, perhaps many of them that we live in this region went daily to make purchases and at this point a question arises how many of us have stopped us to inform people that there are behind the products that we offer? Many of us will perhaps answer clear!, that complicate life knowing more problems if we can barely cope with our. Perhaps this answer is not so far from our reality, since today, with as complex as globalization processes, our pace of life is faster and we can only deal with ourselves time. However, I think these responses are excuses, we are owners of our lives, and therefore do not have to give the control to the globalized society. This is why we should think that we are part of a society in which Pinto the fair us reflects (Davinson and Ketterer, 2006: 9) a good sample of the cultural substratum of our region. Culture that incidentally, part of every one of the inhabitants, and therefore is to know the realities that live in this place should not us be indifferent, because, we belong to it and it is part of our identity that many as inhabitants of this region and as Chileans don’t know. If we look more closely at what happens in this clearing house (Davinson and Ketterer, 2006: 10) where many women in the region are involved on a daily basis, generating goods and services, creating popular culture and influencing the spatial conformation of our city.We realize that it is a very relevant fact, many of us don’t know the work of these women which make innumerable efforts to survive with their families, are struggling alone with their children and when I refer to the word struggle do expressing its full meaning since these women are true tireless warrior against poverty, which pursues as his worst nightmare. Them they live in an environment where your only means of subsistence is agriculture, this arduous task to transform our environment, to sow and reap the rewards that gives us mother earth, an occupation that has always done, but which now more that has never been prejudice by the lack of resources and by the grounds, which have been removed them. It seems a fairly uneven economy, where indigenous communities are hardest as many stories are submitted in an Informal economy where there are no laws to protect them and therefore the supply and demand become their sentenciadores of life. Small farmers and farmers, gatherers seasonal workers; they are caught in this cruel system, by which products that sell go through countless obstacles to that finally arrive at our table. These are (Davinson and Ketterer, 2006: 20) worlds that, in the case of our country, make up a mestizo society imposed canons of superiority over indigenous women as well as for collectors seasonal workers and those involved in informal trade in this fair. How make us indifferent to what happens around us! The testimonies presented in this book are proof of it contradictory that our society is, we see reflected in a Chile (Davinson and Ketterer, 2006: 44) developing attractive for foreign investment and diversification of their exports. There is however another face that many of us refuse to see (Davinson and Ketterer, 2006: 42) almost 50% of our population survives thanks to the informal economy, in all their combinations. That incidentally this shows us suffering, difficulties, disagreements, which have to pass many of our compatriots to live. And it’s that simple and hard! What you earn from your efforts and your work, only reaches them to survive. Now that we wouldn’t have to fit no doubt that everything that happens to our around rests us and therefore we should make part to reverse this so little balanced situation. In some part of the book I read that they are (Davinson and Ketterer, 2006: 42, 43) people absolutely invisible and purpose, a market to which his subordinate presence suits you am I agree on the market whereas you pretend this situation to create the image of a better country, but what I’m not disagreeing is that we believe that they are the invisibleon the contrary I think that us; are that formed a shell of iron that does not let us see beyond our noses in how we see others if we do not allow ourselves to see? If each one of us stop our fears behind and asked the special gift that was given to each and handiwork it and share it with everyone, I think that as complex as these problems would not be accommodated. Do not want to imagine a utopian society since we know that we are not perfect, but yes, to get to thinking you can deliver each one as a person, perhaps even with change small details like paying the fair value of the products that we offer will be valuing the work of so many people like us, details for me make the change towards the future. In a specific story of a woman named Lucia Lincopan me I could realise what was previously said: it can be seen towards all those that surround it, shares their penalties joys with their co-workers, despite having a life very hard and complicated, since is head of household, always ready to deliver what she has others, this is how it shares his knowledge in medicine through herbs with their clients and acquaintances: Lucia thus this contributing toward your community what has gone taught from generation to generation, that is what gives us this valuable woman, he gives us more than our culture, makes us go back to our roots. So she, us is a clear example of routine of beneficiante life for our region and country. Finally would like to express that also this book made me reflect that we must begin to explore and you look at our nearby or future realities. Experiencing in terrain and through research the events that occur in our around, turning us to have a participation active against different phenomena that are specific to the place where we live. Ali Partovi has firm opinions on the matter. Understand these situations give us foot to delve into a world in which phenomena such as these deserve to be researched and analyzed. So not stay invisible against this society and be able to dream in becoming a professional that can provide real tools for my family, my country and thus believing in a fairer and more just future.
