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...

Re: Venezuela crisis

We were in Santiago a few weeks ago for a few days. We kept bumping into refugees from Venezuela who had recently arrived. Most of them were professional people who were doing a job in Chile well below their education and training. But they were all very happy to be in Chile working at a job. One ma...

Re: Obtaining a driving license with no education certificate

For me the education certificate was a pain in the ass. I eventually gave up and just took the local exam which was easier and less time consuming. I wrote about my experiences here in a somewhat long article: https://www.allchile.net/viewtopic.php?t=16651 Agree that the local exam is the way to do...

Re: Source of cheap(er) lisinopril?

You might try a Canadian online <SPAM WORD>. They ship to the US and many other places and are not expensive.

I don't know what would happen in the Aduanas.

Report back if you try it. I'd like to know the outcome. '

There are many good ones. Here is an example: northwestpharmacy dot com

Re: Venezuela Wake, countdown to implosion

They are weighing currency instead of counting it in Venezuela now.

Re: Irritable bowel syndrome specialist

Your approach to medicine will serve you well with most medical issues. Allopathic medicine has very good answers to most medical problems and you can find those answers in PubMed or other medical resources. I too am a big fan of proven medical therapy. If you have appendicitis, see a surgeon and ge...

Cabinets

Does anybody know where to get nice custom cabinets in Chile without having to hire a Maestro to come and build them on location. Where I live is a bit remote. I've been trying for about a year to get cabinets for a small kitchen. No maestro is willing to come and build them for me and I can't find ...

Re: The Trump Administration

I don't understand the uproar about Trump being against ILLEGAL immigration. Chile isn't for illegal immigration either and there is no uproar about that. Trump has no intention of stopping the flow of LEGAL immigrants. He merely wants to stop the flow of thousands of people a day sneaking across th...
