Re: top elementary schools in Santiago for Spanish speakers?

In the end, it cost us about $100 less to...

Re: JMObs, sure seems a lot are leaving lately

Here in Santiago, I work with many industrial, mining, transportation customers... we are hearing that some fairly large companies are cutting back... for example SK Rental (part of Sigdo Koppers) doesn't have any new projects in the pipeline so they have cut people.
