Re: Searching for best projects.. Opinions Please?

Chileans just don't buy like they do in other places------I wish i could put my finger on it exactly----its comes to necessity at the first point----rarely would a Chilean buy something in the marketplace that they do not directly need or that would not show in the street a social status that puts t...

Re: Searching for best projects.. Opinions Please?

While I wish you the best of luck in working out your business and beyond that, I am the first to say I am not always right-----but Chileans are very monolithic in their buying decisions-----apart from new technology in cars, cell, phones and electronics----its hard for me to imagine Chileans will d...

Re: Forester work as an American?

Forestry in Chile is very specialized in a work situation where it pays-----that is to say because of the geology, soils and weather by region it can all be very different than more traditional areas of the world in forestry.

Re: Genealogy Help - Vital Records

As a mining engineer, its most likely he would have been working anywhere from central Chile and into the north-----what would be today the 1st through 5th regions----Chile took over land in the north that was once Peru and Bolivia around 1899 so you might exclude that area depending on when he was ...

Re: Putting a fence

Your best bet is solidly finding local guys to help you do it----ask up and down your road and you will find someone----daily rate is about 10 to 15 dollars a day for standard farm labor plus lunch and its wise to supply some chica along the way-----you are employing what is called a "Jornilero" whi...

Re: POWER of ATTORNEY for REAL ESTATE TRANSACTION
