I remember seeing policeman riding around on motorcycles with an Uzi on their backs in cocked position. Being in the military Alon and I were familiar with the safety kinks of the Uzi, in Israel this would have been a flagrant weapons safety violation (an Uzi is very volatile, it might go off if it simply falls, which as I understand happens on motorcycles).
The hotel we stayed at, like most hotels we stayed at, was the sort where people rent rooms by the hour. We made friends with the owner, who explained that in Chile it's sometimes difficult for married couples to get some privacy since large families live together, so they come to his place. Asking about the couples coming through the back door we just got a wink and a smile.
