Dream surf shack seeks new owner

Parkinson's is a sneaky disease. When one gets the first diagnosis of "early onset Parkinson's", the earnest, fresh faced neurologist delivering the news seems more devastated than the recipient of it. Ahh, well he has knowledge of all the twists and turn in store for our life. Thus it was 15 years ...

Re: Any push back?

I got out early this am to head off to San Antonio and Líder. I used the carretera and the kiosk girls warned me that there was a checkpoint a couple of km down the Rd with no way to circumvent it.

Re: coronavirus (COVID-19) in Chile

I got into SCL Saturday am, pretty routine until we came up against a row of tables, forms with quarantine in red letters across them. Even the pen the girl used to write was red so I knew i was in trouble. I was ultimately escorted to an airport approved taxi stand where I was quoted 50,000 pesos t...
