Re: Wages for locals

harry2017, if you are in the US legally as refugee, advise to stay put in the US. At least you have a job and earning a living, aren't you? If you still wanting to get out of US, head to Brazil, perhaps to Salvador da Bahia, its population more than 75% are of black African origin. Also heard that ...

Re: Flooding, Mud Slides, Water cut, Santiago and North

They are all mall crawlers. I guess that a common garden variety of 4x4 should be sufficient for that. :) I had always wanted to get an FJ6. I don't know how they equip them for Chile, but if I remember correctly, here they are equipped with the 4 liter engine which is a huge gas guzzler.... I deci...

Re: Flooding, Mud Slides, Water cut, Santiago and North

admin, you have been complaining about the "seat" on Toyotas. Is the FJ Cruiser thigh length support good enough for your long femur? The last time I sat on one the seat size was good enough for me but wondering if Chile imported FJ's seat comfortable for you? If not, spend some big money ...

Re: Flooding, Mud Slides, Water cut, Santiago and North

The FJ totally impractical if you have kids. They are mostly a two person car with those suicide doors, but that is why I like it.

Re: Flooding, Mud Slides, Water cut, Santiago and North

yea, I recently decided to upgrade my off road capabilities with exactly this in mind; even though my stock Hyundai has 4x4, good mud tires, and has never let me down when I have asked it go places it was never designed to go to.

Re: IVA on hotel charge

Last time in Chile, my dear EEUU-San had booked me a stay at a place closer to the Shogun Japanese restaurant. There the Hotel men asked to copy my Passport for IVA waiver reason. Some place go and serve the tourist without even me asking!
