Re: Parcela construction woes

Oh wow. haha! Let me see if I can answer some of the inquiries/comments made. Hi Gloria, I've been a member of this board since before I moved here in 2007. I don't get to hang around the forum as much as I'd like to anymore, but it was very useful and I found some good info on this board before and...

Re: Parcela construction woes

Hola Admin, tanto tiempo! Now I have to re-live the trauma, squirting limon on an old wound! huhuhu! Let's see, we got a licensed architect towards the end since we were hoping to do things right after the first bad experience - but no dice, he was a fake as I mentioned. 2 in a row for us, what are ...

Parcela construction woes

As requested by Britkid, I will share a thorny experience we had here in Chile about 4 years ago. Hopefully, the newbies to the country can pick up something good and make people cautious if I share our story. In the beginning, husband and I were debating on getting a pre-fab house vs a custom-built...

Re: Moving Sale! Package priced so low so we don't have to rent a bodega

Hola Britkid,

Sure I'll do that. Maybe the newbies will learn a thing or two. Watch out for it in the RANT section :-) Maybe it will be entitled DUPED IN CHILE. :-(

Moving Sale! Package priced so low so we don't have to rent a bodega

Hi everyone! We have packaged the following items since we are desperate to get them out of our bodega and have no room to store them in the new place. Posting on this board first before we put it on Mercadolibre.cl. We were saving this for our parcela project but looks like it will never happen. *I...

Re: Need an accountant

Oh Zenth, how funny you say that... because for as long as I've lived here (4 for me and 15 for my husband), it seems like there's just no accountants who will charge a fair price (for "sideline jobs") OR even if you did pay them fairly - still drag their feet until it's panic time (and sometimes th...

Need an accountant

Looking for an accountant/referral for an accountant. Doesn't have to speak english. It's hard it is to find a contractual accountant to help with filing taxes here, we've been working with one for years but he's too slow for us :-( [-insert "pull hair out" icon here-]. We have a 5 year old GIS cons...

Re: Will asians be discriminated?

Whoever the Pinay was, can you please bring some Lumpia please? Thanks. Haha! The "pinay" here. Let me tell you a little story: Once I got so desperate for lumpia, I sat here and decided to make the wrapper from scratch. On the 10th wrapper or so, I was close to tears thinking about how I can purch...

Re: Machu Picchu & Iquitos

Isolde: I thought we were talking about the Huayna Picchu Hike - not the Inca Trails as we never went on those. All I know is that we met so many people - some who did the full Inca Trail and no matter what shape or age they are in, they all admitted that it was quite a challenge. The HP hike was to...
