Re: The trade wars, they have begun

After following the economical news for a couple years, I've slowly lost any credency I could lend to the concept of "trade wars"... Sure, there are sanctions and competitions that hurt other countries' economies, but in the shade, where nobody's looking, both countries engaging in a "trade war" are...

Re: Exotic house cat breeders in Chile

It's true that you can find magnificent cats in alleyways or in cardboard boxes, just look at the hobo I picked up from the trash containers in my street 3 years ago :

Re: Bringing spices back to Chile

Gordon Ramsay-style steak IS a delicacy, this, or a large piece of beef BBQ'd at slow speed for an hour... It remains tender and tasty, without being raw red either (call me a criminal, a heretic, but I don't like rare beef...) Even the least beef-oriented people I know asked for seconds when I cook...

Re: Another security alert

Then, coming from Russia, I shouldn't feel in a strange place ; there is that culture of "crap run companies" here as well, and yes, you quickly are able to spot them from a mile away. I guess that this talent will keep being useful, and yes they're the "cover it up at all costs" kind as well. It's ...

Re: Venezuela Wake, countdown to implosion

In all cases, no matter whether they "peacefully" default, sink in civil war, get some free democracy courtesy of the US Air Force or are picked up by China, the situation in Venezuela isn't becoming better, nor for Venezuela, nor for the USA, nor for Chile through a rise of instability in South Ame...

Re: Criminal Record

I'm not sure there's one country in the world that delivers long stay visas to people with such criminal records... If it was just some petty stuff like, I don't know, getting into a brawl in public over a car crash, you could have tried, but if the guy has been convicted of burglary and drug consum...

Re: Bringing spices back to Chile

Of course these aren't literally spices that grow only in Georgia or Armenia, they're local mixes such as khmeli suneli and dried ajika (it's supposed to be a sauce, but some shops sell dry versions of it that you can just add to soups, sauces or vegetable dishes) ; sorry for not making that clear. ...

Re: Can you afford to live in Chile????

Would one European salary be enough for two people to live in Chile? If we come there with my girlfriend, we'll be able to work from afar and earn the equivalent of 1500€ a month, or something like 1.1 million pesos a month. Would it be realistic for both of us to live on that income, including rent...

Re: would we be nuts to bring my 2 yorkies on vacation with us?

If you aren't going for weeks or months, wouldn't it be worth it to find a family member or friend who could care for your dogs or other pets for some time, maybe in exchange for money? That's what my parents do with their dogs, and what I do with my cat, when we go on vacation or on a professional ...

Re: Bringing spices back to Chile

That's what my girlfriend does when bringing back Armenian and Georgian spices from Russia when she flies back home. As long as you've got less than 1 kilogram of the stuff and it's safely packed, they won't be bothering you. Some customs officers may ask you to open the bags, so take ones that can ...

Re: Open subjects

Hello from Moscow

Hello everyone! I'm Olivier, originally from Belgium, but living and working in Moscow now. I'm registering on this site because of two reasons that may be driving me to Chile later on, first for professional reasons (can't say more without blurting out some of the company's sensitive info) and seco...
