Re: Driving in Santiago and TAG

I paid an arm an a leg in fines when I was paying my patente last spring.

Re: how did you pull off moving to chile?

I agree with others, that first a vacation and if the wife likes it ( even though a vacation is totally different from actually living here) then you make the move, but only if you speak Spanish and have a profession that is in demand.
