Some interesting stuff to read for those interested in real estate markets in general
Except that real estate markets 'in general' do not exist in Chile :) Everything is priced based on the specifics of each comuna/street/building/floor and orientation towards the sun :)

Re: Where Should I Start?

The guy is a good writer. He creates a world and puts you in the middle of it. Why not enjoy the experience? Why pick at the details and destroy the atmosphere for yourself and for others? Do you correct errors in a historical movie for people in the theater while they're still watching it? Relax an...

I agree, the further narration took an extremely right-wing turn.
Did you just call him a right-wing extremist? :) You can't expect everyone to cater to your left-wing stance. Don't like it? Don't read it :)

Re: Argentina Economy, Election, and possible default?

Re: Chile Wealth, Inequality, and International rankings

Re: ordene de pago

I think you should have said SWIFT instead of the giro postal. They're thinking you're going to send them a cheque and they're telling you they won't accept a simple cheque, but will accept a certified cheque/money order. The moment you get certified cheque/money order at your Canadian bank, the mon...

Re: Where Should I Start?

Thank you! That sounds a lot more like the Chile that I know of :) Now, where would I go to meet a stranger who'd give me one of those trademark long Chiean stares that you mentioned? Are they an extinct breed? :)

Re: Where Should I Start?

Your every post plunges me deeper and deeper into a Chilean rabbit hole :) Good stuff!

But I have a question that's been bothering me - when you said there was lots of shooting during curfew, do you know how many people were actually killed? Or was it more like warning shots in the air?

Re: Opening A Bank Account

Yeah, it seems they can look it up using your RUT to see your account balance and stuff. You might need to sign a consent form to allow them to do that.
