Re: Lent a Chilean several millions pesos, and he does not pay back

Thank you Gloria. I had a feeling Fiscalia might be a waste of time. Sounds like the safest thing to do is try to preserve what I have, suck up the money loss and be thankful for what I do have.

Re: Lent a Chilean several millions pesos, and he does not pay back

my two cents - and it's a gift not a loan. I'm with admin on friends/relatives. Don't loan to relatives if at all possible. The best way to lose a friend is to loan him/her money. Now and then I will observe that a friend is up against it and if I can afford it, I just find a way to make it a gift. ...

Re: Travel to the u.s. gets safer, TSA calls in sick over shutdown

Clinton did the same thing. Seems like every preznit has to make his mark. Re the national parks - yes indeed. I count myself very lucky to have seen them when they were still wild. Grand Canyon when the entry roads were dirt and there was just a rickety post and rail fence at the edge. Canyon de Ch...

Re: soil testing

Thanks guys!!! Coagra.cl is really helpful - by which I mean it has a very useful website. The main office, if anyone is interested, is near Buin,
which is home to the Santa Rita vineyard and (amazing) museum and restaurant. Time for a field trip! Cheers.

soil testing

Greetings fellow gardeners. Please, does anyone know of a soil testing service? It could be linked to a farmers cooperative or perhaps there is a government agency? My problem: I have planted some lovely healthy fruit trees in the Valpo region. They start off full of joy - flower and set fruit, but ...

Re: Construction material cost in Chile and what is available

On the subject of heating: Does anyone have views/info about brands of calderas for heating with radiators? Also, does any one have info about installers, aka maestros, in the Valpo region? My web searches have been great - if you live in the us or europe, but not much help for
chile. Thanks.

Re: REal estate tax question

I agree with everyone that trying to buy a property which has not been registered is a very bad idea. Also, please be wary of properties which are inheritances. Under chilean law, every member of the family who inherits must sign off on a transfer document. I don't recall the name of the document bu...
