Re: Possibly moving to Chile

One last one...again 2015...we were looking at lots of places to live. At the time I remembered some Spanish where one says "my name is x" from a brief trip to Mexico a long time ago. However I wasnt saying it right...rather I was saying "me amo" instead of "me llamo". As in may ahmoh instead of may...

Re: Possibly moving to Chile

Ok I'm going to kick this horse a bit more Again 2015, before we got our first vehicle. We had a special taxi guy who we used because we lived outside of town so we could summon him and he would come pick us up...take us to whatever stores we wanted...wait outside for us. Then take us home for a fla...

Re: Possibly moving to Chile

When I first was in Santiago in 2015 I was trying to get to a bank on pedro de valdivia. I got in the taxi and kept saying pedro de valdivia. I was saying it slow and enunciating to make sure he understood but I too saw the synapses dim. I was desperate trying to say it. He kept saying no entiendo. ...

Re: coronavirus (COVID-19) in Chile

Re: coronavirus (COVID-19) in Chile

More controversy on mixing vaccines. Several cruise lines are prohibiting passengers with mixed vaccines and treating them as totally unvaccinated...regardless what their home country told them "was totally cool and everything" Meanwhile Germany and perhaps Canada are saying it's even more better (b...

Re: Questions about moving to La Araucania

We have lived in eastern Araucania for 6 years continously since moving from the US It is a great place for those that want to live a rural/agricultural life away and far from mid to big size cities. There is a lot of saber rattling about Araucania and the mapuche...none of which I have been able to...

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

Some interesting stats on India regarding how people are surving the multiple waves of economic problems. I was very surprised to read that 2/3 of India's noninstitutional gold demand comes from the rural areas and 1 in 2 households in India in the last 5 years had purchased gold. If this is even cl...

Re: Chilean Politics

I know the penalties are stiff getting caught schlepping around with an unlicensed firearm here. I can only imagine what the penalties are for not just an unlicensed weapon but a type of weapon that isnt even available or allowed in the country to be owned by a resident let alone used in the commiss...

Re: A history lesson

“That once you let the Commies in, it takes rifles to dislodge them” That’s an interesting way of saying when a Communist is democratically elected, they have to be removed by force and a military dictatorship installed. “The Communists are adept at achieving power by levering historically small vo...
