Re: 2017 election round two: will you vote?

If this were a UK election, they would have manifestos explaining some of this, and then journalist websites would have pages that summarize both candidates positions on key issues...I can't find that from a google search.....

Re: 2017 election round two: will you vote?

Re: home inspection

From reading this blog, I know to take a roll of toilet paper and flush a few big wads down the toilets, Do people agree with this? Chilean plumbing doesn't deal with that kind of thing, isn't what he's proposing not exactly the done thing? What if you block up the toilets for them? I suggest you a...

Re: Buying a car in Chile

There is some more detail about buying a car in an article I wrote here https://www.allchile.net/viewtopic.php?t=11587 as well as on the All Chile wiki.

Whether these people care, or even notice the problems that their habits and attitudes cause is a moot point, but I believe that many do take a perverse ...

Re: one last look

Nikotromus, are you able to buy a house because you already have enough money to buy it out without mortgage? I am just curious to know if you have any experience of getting a mortgage in Chile.
