Re: Favorite Restaurants

Mine is Don Peyo in Ñuñoa, street is Lo Encalada near Crescente Errazuriz... a bit hard to find because it doesn’t have a sign and just looks like a house but there are always loads of cars outside. My dish to order is pastel de choclo but that’s because I live outside of Chile now so I miss that on...

Re: Marriage Certificate

The alternative is a painful day or 2 spent at various addresses in the centre going back and forth between various offices getting stamps and just when you think you are done its go to agustinas 123456789 and pay 511 pesos and get another stamp, a race against time to get it all done by 2pm or you ...

Re: State of emergency and curfews, October 2019

I’m headed to SCL tomorrow on a standby flight and I just checked how many spaces there are on the plane to see how likely I am to travel or whether I will have to wait.. the Bogotá to Santiago leg has 70 cupos!! Usually there are just 2 or 3... so I will definitely get to travel but the question is...

Re: New rules for Latam.

Haha it’s like if you fly premium economy. Instead of pollo o pasta you get a menu giving you a choice of pasta a la balls bla or chicken au bla bla. When I first saw it I couldn’t believe people fall for this kind of crap and think they are getting a higher quality service .

Re: How can i check if i can leave chile or not?

I just try to remember they are on a ridiculous power trip because they were probably on a receiving end of a ridiculous power trip from their supervisor or whatever earlier that day. Applies especially to “security guards” in supermarkets, pharmacies etc. but definitely to anyone in PDI.

Re: New rules for Latam.

I thought they were great in every way compared to Iberia !!! Maybe my memory is being slightly selective or just failing. LAN never ever hung up the phone on me, refused to look at me and continue filing their nails whilst attending me at a counter, or my favourite one at Barajas airport connection...

Re: New rules for Latam.

Qué latam what has happened to this airline. It’s not that many years ago that I would go out of my way and pay extra to avoid being subjected to Iberia’s very Spanish approach to customer service and LAN flights were glorious in comparison. Rumour has it that the one world alliance put a rocket up ...

Re: Uber in Chile

Don’t get why an Uber driver would try and scam you by driving round the block or whatever, isn’t the price fixed before you get in according to the route? Anyway, in Santiago at least since Uber I always try to take it- find the drivers way more professional in their manner and their driving far le...

Re: USA Citizen Married To a Chilean Wanting to Move to Chile

The AFP can issue you a temporary RUT once you have your work contract / permiso especial visa en trámite paperwork and you can use that to make AFP contributions and give it to the Isapre.

Re: Venezuela crisis

I think people can also relate to it because they draw comparisons about what happened in the Allende then Pinochet years, and there are plenty of opinionated posts flying around my Facebook about US involvement in this or the “I can remember all the queueing I had to do in the Allende years” type p...
