Re: coronavirus (COVID-19) in Chile

That's probably the most nutritionally valuable item in the box. Just don't eat it straight! As a paleo-leaning individual, the can of jurel is the most nutritious item in the box. And it is not from a Chinese boat and is Chilean in origen and production. :wink: Totally agree...Mackerel for the win

Re: herbal tinctures

Thanks mem, was your FedEx order over the certain threshold in value? What was the value threshold? Yeah like EE said the official threshold is $30 USD, but keep in mind that includes CIF (content, insurance, and freight) That being said the reality seems to be much more variable. For example we ha...

Re: herbal tinctures

Has anyone had any success or failure shipping unopened 500 ml bottles of pure herbal tinctures (only one herb per bottle) for personal use with original receipt and description? Are there red flags if I use the word supplement or vitamin? Thank you I had a package coming via FedEx from a vendor in...

Re: The Chile Economy, Social Crisis and Virus Impact

“Eco Camping La Palmera” near Vicuña closed, after stating on their Facebook that "covid-19 is a farce", and "a scam by WHO". https://www.biobiochile.cl/noticias/nacional/region-de-coquimbo/2020/06/29/prohiben-funcionamiento-de-camping-en-vicuna-aseguraban-que-la-pandemia-es-una-farsa.shtml Yesterd...

Re: Global Economy, recession, depression, or...

I tend to think the USD will keep getting stronger more or less with bumps in the road until the true end/replacement of the USD which will be when -other countries start to refuse to take payment in USD It's already getting tenuous with the parabolic debt increase, but countries still take the USD ...

Re: On C.V. Testing

Yes, I get it. Just curious for anecdotal grins. My whole family here are O. However, i know that a lot of the uppercrust in Santiago with majority spanish lineage are A which makes me wonder if that is part of the reason Santiago has been hit so hard...of course a dense city is far more of a factor...

Re: Online furniture stores that take foreign cards

Falabella worked for some purchases, but they didn't work for others. 2 out of 5 purchases went through, and the others were cancelled by them. Given that I made sure that I was using a card that had way beyond what the items were worth and I used the same card for all purchases, I couldn't find an...

Re: coronavirus (COVID-19) in Chile

I took my courtesy car back to the temuco dealership today and saw the the checkpoint stopping every car going into pucon from villarrica. So I figured I'd check out back roads to bypass it on the way back per the previous replies to not be such a mark. I was ambivalent because the back roads are on...
