Finally, the last two saved in Chili....

Thank goodness, the last two miners were pulled out of the mine in Chili. The last two were American workers who were on an exchange program to study mining in the region. Rick and Vance from Albuquerque, New Mexico, who have spent many hours in mines in New Mexico wanted to study the practices "down south". "We thought it was a good idea at the time", said Rick. Vance added, "every time I go in these mines, something fucks up."

The two vowed NEVER to venture into a mine again. "I'm never going any further than my own backyard," said Rick. "Look, I have this great backyard that has all that I need to survive. F... Chili. I'm not going back."
"What he said," Vance later said.

Life in Albuquerque, New Mexico

When Ricks parents moved to Albuquerque, the first thing they noticed was the wide open spaces. And that was just outdoors....
When they bought their first house, they were amazed that the 1,010 square foot house seemed much larger than it looked from outside.
Rick later went on to sail the families sofa around the Southern Cross and then Northwest to Catilina.
