Re: The Pinera administration 2.0

..... like every block there was a guy or two sleeping on the street.
That sounds like just about every large city in the so called "developed" world. And they´re only the ones you can see. Add to those the hidden people living out of their cars, in tents, couch surfing with friends etc etc

Re: The Pinera administration 2.0

It only needs the US to impose sanctions on them and then sanction anybody who dares trade with them. That´ll take ém to rock bottom.... along with the rest of the neighborhood.

Re: Venezuela crisis

There is little mystery why the US would take pains to overthrow the government of little Nicaragua (population 6 million). In addition to Nicaragua’s current and historical geo-strategic importance, President Daniel Ortega’s administration greatly improved people’s lives, presenting what is often c...

Re: The Chile Eclipses Thread

You´re over thinking it. Our guests are only trying to figure if they´re going to arrive earlier or stay longer, when they can actually book their flights is irrelevent. They´re obviously planning to travel around and might arrive in Latin America much earlier or depart to home much later than the e...

Re: Newbie considering Chile

Yes I wouldn´t nominate Concepcion. For the Viet restaurant you´ll want to stay closer to sources of fresh ingredients and might even have to grow some.

Re: Fresh milk and farmers cheese

You´re overthinking it. Read the article again. It´s not "irradiated". If it was that simple it´d already have been done years ago. It´s a newly developed process which has undergone stringent tests and quality control.

Re: Fresh milk and farmers cheese

They won´t be giving too much away this early otherwise someone will try to copy it. It has to be commercialised and the milk put into the export market. That appears to be its primary purpose, to enable the export of fresh milk by sea as against expensive air freight.
