Re: State of emergency and curfews, October 2019

Flew PMC to SCL yesterday afternoon, plane was half full, usually packed.
SCL very calm, everything seemed normal, no protesters, no police or army presence altho there may have been outside the airport entrance. Probably half the number of usual travelers. PDI was practically empty. Pretty surreal.

This van of Carabineros were lucky to get out with their lives. A Molotov flies over and almost hits other protestors too. https://twitter.com/mmmoray/status/1194719513650061314?s=20 This Caribinera was not so lucky. https://www.eluniversal.com.mx/sites/default/files/styles/f03-651x400/public/2019/...

Re: lost certificado de permanencia definitiva

I seem to remember getting a temporary document when I got my first ID, but I don't remember what it was called. Otherwise, I'd just search on that. Registro Civil gives you a receipt which supposedly you can use as a temporary id. My new cedula arrived before I needed to find out if that is true o...

Some of the retail stores have boarded u...

Snowden is a good movie that may answer questions about what they can access.

Really don't want to find o...
