Re: Chinese corp. wants to build an electric car factory in Chile

The real elephant in the room is that China is a nasty dictatorship with no regard for human rights and that doing business with them supports that regime. Here is Last Week Tonight with a video on China (clocking in at 20 minutes).

Re: Rain

There has been quite a few days this month where it rained for some hours and overall we have had a lot of rain this month. I wouldn't like to guess how many millimetres.

Re: Private schools

The way the admin writes it is if there are crappy low end public schools, and high end private schools, with nothing in between. There are a range of options from bottom to top with plenty in the middle. You can get free schools, but there are also, as I understand it, schools for 50,000 a month, 1...

Re: Private schools

That list of British schools doesn't of course include other English, bilingual schools with connections or style more to US or elswhere than Britain. So you could also look at SEK, Lincoln for instance which I don't think is on that list. My original shortlist when I looked into this 5 years ago al...

Re: Transferring money

Got this message today on Transferwise.

Cuenta Vista would include Cuenta RUT.

I'd do the dental work in Chile provided you can defer it to a few months after you arrive. You will be busy on arrival.

Re: What would you want with land in Chile ?

I wonder if you are going to sell 1-2 lots first rather than prepare and put on the market a large number at once. That way, you can learn as you go and avoid mistakes and wasted investment upfront? You can still have a grand plan and do all the lots in the same style, just tweaking as you go. Are y...

Re: Rain

The wind may have been worse than I thought, when I went out into the garden there were a few things knocked over and when I looked on facebook and whatsapp there were some trees down blocking roads in our area.

Pity those don't correlate as well as they used to. HM. I was going to comment quite the op...

Re: Gas/Fuel Prices in Chile

...Anyway while googling on that I looked in my car manual and it says minimum 87 octane for both our cars. ...However it seems to me that even 95 may be a waste of money. ... You might check to see if you are comparing ratings from different methodologies -- there shouldn't be ~8 points actual oct...
