Re: My horror encounter with German investors in Chile

Re: My horror encounter with German investors in Chile

I am not sure I fully understand your description written in english, but I think I get the gist versus the nuances. Is this about how it is? So you and your Brazilian wife honeymooned in south America. You and her lived in europe and you met two Germans in europe that told you about some failed bus...

Re: Chile Wealth, Inequality, and International rankings

Thus, even today, the new middle class and new rich, still think Pucon is the meca to show you have financially and socially arrived; because, a generation earlier, only the super rich could afford to escape the heat in the central region. So does this mean that the new middle class and new rich, t...

Re: Expat leaving debts in Chile

Perhaps you have stood in the queue in Sodimac patiently waiting while the person in front of you has a long involved negotiation with the cashier over the amount they can pay using their CMR Falabella store card.

Pretty happy with my southern chile average temps of around 10 to 20 Celsius. Although does make me inclined to go shopping for a property a bit futher south in...

Re: Expat leaving debts in Chile

The banks all over the world penalize people's credit reports for being a good credit risk and paying off their debts early. Not necessarily, in the decade after I left, my US Empire credit score increased and now sits at 840 with both TransUnion and Experian. For the record, I am a pay in full and...

Re: record heat in the south of chile

I was just about to post a thread where I whine and moan about this heat We are near caburgua and the last 4 days have been absolute murder. We get up at the wee hours and close off all the windows and doors, block all the radiant heat from coming in and it is just not working...normally it works re...
