Otravers, thank you for the thoughts on moving! I definitely needed to read something like that. The question of where to move to settle down has been hanging over our heads for a couple of years now and all too often other people's experiences don't transfer well to our circumstances. Your (loose) ...

I am very interested in the answers to these questions as well! Thank you for the info about plastic bags. That's a good thing to know before we go - we certainly don't want to end up with tons of them. We have many cloth grocery bags - would we be able to bring those in the stores? I suppose it wou...

Thank you for your response. So many of the c-sections are chosen by the mother? That's better (for me) than un-elective c-sections being common since I don't want one. I would still like to avoid the hospital, but it's good to know that c-sections are elective in many cases which is probably one of...

There are also the pay for options like on iTunes where you can buy a season pass to a show and download all the previous episodes and each new one as it is released. I like this option and have used it many times. My favorite tv/movies site (tvlinks.co.uk) went down a month or so ago even though t...

Giving birth in Chile

Our family is not yet finished and I have had a terribly hard time finding information about birth in Chile. I have learned that Chile has the highest c-section rate in the world, which does concern me a bit. I mostly would like to know about home birth and home birth midwives in Chile. Is it a viab...

Interesting to see fellow libertarians attracted by Chile. We left our native France (bankrupt nanny statism turned into an art form) for Portugal a little less than 5 years ago. Since then we've privatized our whole life (school for kids, healthcare coverage, savings, self-employment...) and we do...

Anyway Im no kidding! its true, only dogs OR only cats, never together Hmmm.... we have one dog and one cat... so we would ...

Thank you for this forum!

Hello! I'm new here. My husband and I are looking into moving to Chile in the near future (in about a year or 1.5 years). We must visit first, of course, and right now we are in the process of gathering information. This is, by far, the best resource for moving to Chile that I have found so far and ...
