Santiago, Chile

Professor Bubbles Santiago is a beautiful country. This was my second TV show.... Medio Mundo.. and I was very nervous because I really did not have an act. I got the job on the strength of the unusual nature of what I was doing... putting people inside large bubbles. The show went well and I was able to relax and enjoy the city. In 1986, the economy was bad. Huge shopping centers were empty.... vacant stores, no people. School groups marched down the streets openly singing anti-government songs. The military was everywhere. I once tried to take a picture of a government building. As I brought my camera up to my eye, six soldiers within my view slowly raised their machine guns and pointed them at me. My taxi driver screamed at me to drop my camera.... advice which I quickly followed!
