Re: English Driving Test?

i would get one myself but i have no proof of education. is there any way around this? If you have a decent level of Spanish you could try passing the Octavo basico which is what I did (it is a multiple choice answer test on a computer). They send you links to study a couple of months before the ex...

Re: Getting my driver's license is harder than getting resid

I did this through the Municipalidad de Providencia and had to get the "letter" from the boss lady in the municipalidad to write a q...

Wine prices

I am off to the UK next week for a few days and thought that I would bring a nice bottle of “carmenere” to a friend who enjoys this variety. Doing some research into what to buy on the internet, I saw that “Mundo del vino” sell the “Purple Angel” from Montes vineyard for $66.590 (US$133) per bottle....

Re: Clean Room Suit/medical/science bunny suit???

Not really sure it is what you are looking for, but I believe they sell something like them in the workers safety section of sodimac for painters or food workers that completely cover your body. You are right in that they sell cheap and cheerful "throwaway" suits in Sodimac that are fine if you jus...

Re: Chilean to English Dictionary

On the other hand, when I have been in the Basque country, no one has ever failed to converse with me in Castellano. Not even in the town of Poo, in Asturias. Poo (Asturias) is not in the Basque country :? and hence am not surprised that you could converse in Castellano. There are many small villag...
