Re: Tenants disappered during the night

You could also check if "Landlords Insurance" is available in Chile to cover yourself into the future. If so read the policy closely for its exclusions and see if it's worth the expense, usually a smallish percentage of the rent.

Re: Philanthropy Starting In Chile

Given the history of Latin America I think Chileans do a reasonable job of advancing their own causes. It's just done differently to other places, culture again. Though I'm not sure which particular "cause" you're referring to. It seems you imagine they need to be raised up somehow, a concept the va...

Re: "Concubine" gains inheritance on Court Appeal

Yep, down here in Auracania I can see Mapuche in the genes of a great swag of people who are either ignorant of their ancestral heritage or would never admit it. Morbid obesity is the big hint, their predominate native genes are unsuited to the modern cheap diet of high carbs and sugar. You see it a...

Re: Chilean tourist shoplifting syndicate in Australia...

Well spotted Matt, I was reading about it a couple of days ago. Seems they move from country to country. The Irish gypsies are pretty good at it too in Australia but they concentrate on the vulnerable elderly and roof repairs.

Re: Philanthropy Starting In Chile

Interesting thread, philanthopy "starting" in Chile. It's been happening in Chile for years and being done by Chileans. For example my stepson for the last 3 plus years has worked for a group of philanthropic Santiago architects who fund parks, playgrounds and community gardens in poor areas in the ...

Re: soil testing

No idea where you can buy worms in Chile but a few might already be there deep down. Regardless just mulch. Add 50% leaf litter, twigs, a bit of sand and anything else you can rake up to add to those lawn clippings to airate and help break them down, that alone will draw in other munchers. Buy some ...

Re: soil testing

Start some heavy mulching right out to the drip line of the trees and even dig it in a little. Introduce earthworms into the mulch if possible so they help break it down and pull it into the soil. Keep the mulch a little away from the base of the trees so it doesn't cause rot.

Re: Chile's Place in Latin America

I agree on the demise of aircraft carriers. They and the accompanying fleet are all about projecting power. For years now they've had nasty surprises eg. the time years ago a Chinese sub surfaced in the middle of a fleet, just to show they could. Or more recently the now ageing Australian Collins Cl...

Re: Chilean Crime Novel in English

Years ago I read an article by Penguin, worldwide, been around for a century or more, saying that the break even point for them is sales of 40,000 books. After that they and the author move into profit. Obviously if the book is taken up for a movie things change dramatically $wise and the author sig...

Re: Crazy rumors and conspiracy theories chileans love

Yes the porkies, the guy cutting all the trees down on his property saying, "I'm going to build a hotel!", with me thinking, "No you're not, you're cutting to sell the timber then you'll put the block on the market". Five months later the "Vende" sign went up. The Methodist Minister who wasn't, the ...
