Re: llamica Pellet stoves

Maybe it would.

But would you build a false chimney and see if it worked? Or would you take the stove back and get one that worked without going to all the trouble of constructing one?

Re: llamica Pellet stoves

Good ideas. I've looked up the draft parameters and the installation is inside the brackets of what I can find. Regarding trying it on a cold day: We tried it the third week in January when it was about 35-40 degrees outside (we live in the mountains and January was cold). I haven't fired it up sinc...

llamica Pellet stoves

Llamica Pellet stoves seemed like a really neat idea. They make Pellet stoves that run without electrecity. That would be great when the electricity went out, right? And it came with a 1 year guarantee! So I paid over $1000 (800 mil) for one of their stoves and had it installed. I followed the direc...

Cheap Tickets on American

I stumbled across a real bargain on American Airlines. They have Mileage tickets for half price. I bought tickets from Santiago to Dallas and back to fly just before Christmas for 15000 miles each way. Low-cost mileage seats usually aren't available near Christmas at all. At other times, when they a...

Re: Shipping from USA to Chile option

I've shipped pallets before. Its a lot cheaper than an entire container.

Having said that, I might be interested in sharing a container. How much space will you have available and what is your time-frame?

Re: Pesos and Protests

... You think all those banks and ATMs are going to go back to a lot of those places and re open? Supermarkets will rationalize and consolidate their branches. The list is loooong of disruption and new ways of operating that create a lot of unemployment. This has happened many times in the US. When...

It will be interesting to see how the city functions without a metro system.

Re: Venezuela crisis

Regarding all the Venezuelans who have come to Chile and are working. I don't begrudge them the chance for a better life. Anyone who comes legally and is willing to work hard has my support. It does raise a question in my mind though: How are they able to work? Is it legal to drive an Uber after bei...

Re: rising anti-immigration politics in the Chilean Election

Not so many immigrants in the south where I am yet. People's opinions are mainly driven by what they see on the news. From my own perspective, the immigrants from Venezuela seem to be entering Chile legally. So I think its great that they can escape a bad situation in their own country. Hats off to ...

Re: rising anti-immigration politics in the Chilean Election

Its very interesting to watch the Chilean sentiment on immigration change. By virtue of being an ExPat over the past 3 years I have had many nationals launch into a diatribe about "the wall" and how awful the idea is. Some of these people I only met for the first time and I hadn't said anything abou...
