Re: Advantages of Chile over Argentina?

Sorry, can't help, but then I prefer Argentina over Chile :D "Awfully close to Antarctica" - goes for both Argentina and Chile Wine? - Argentinian wine is at least as good, and much cheaper than Chilean wine, but you don't drink, oh well. Beef? - I don't eat beef either but I manage ok (not vegetari...

Re: The Economic Impact of the Social Crisis

I'm not sure about the roaming, it would depend on the operator, Claro wanted to do away with roaming but I'm not sure how that went. And a sign and a flag is basically what you get here, I've not been to a country that's so relaxed about immigration. I can apply for citizenship here this year.

Re: The Economic Impact of the Social Crisis

Yeah, I know, a very long time ago, a Mexican friend explained that people like you and me have the price written on our foreheads. In Argentina there's no gringo tax, since they imagine themselves to be all descended from Europeans, so things are easier here ;-)

Re: The Economic Impact of the Social Crisis

The Argentinans are doing a better job of promoting and supporting tourism in the Chilean Patagonia, than the fucking Santiago government. I'm just back from my holiday in Colombia so I'm just catching up :-) I don't know that Argentina promotes much tourism, or even makes it easy (the 10% fee for ...

Re: Argentina Economy, Election, and possible default?

Yes, Macri out, Fernandez in... at least they're talking to each other this time around. Fernandez' victory was much narrower than expected, the margin closed substantially since August, and he lost every major population centre except the province of Buenos Aires, which apparently has about 16 mill...

Well, it’s Chile, they can’t get summer or winter time right, why should they get a curfew right? 🙄

Re: State of emergency and curfews, October 2019

By the way, for those jotting down the economic cost of the disturbances, how much does it cost to shut down a country for 9-12 hours?

Re: State of emergency and curfews, October 2019

Piñera is being blamed because “you break it, you own it” He was in charge when Chile broke, now he’s to blame. Unfairly, you say? But he’s the president, it’s his job to know what’s going on in his country and he failed miserably. The Carabineros no longer have the reputation they did, unfortunatel...

Re: State of emergency and curfews, October 2019

Piñera is ready to put a tinfoil hat on: “Estamos en guerra contra un enemigo poderoso, implacable, que no respeta a nada ni a nadie” Lmao mr. president you are your own enemy, along with your lame relative Chadwick. The only thing that makes me happy that it’s not immigrant-focused as it would be ...
