Re: Shipping 1 cubic. Chile to UK.

Ouch! I see Chile is still pricey! Mexico definitely has an advantage on that end! Will check out land freight, thanks!

Re: Shipping 1 cubic. Chile to UK.

Hi, thanks for the info. I didn't think of land freight because I just thought ocean would be cheaper. But yes, good idea. I'll look into it. Mexico west coast, probably the port of Manzanillo.
It would be easier if my things were in Santiago, but I had to go and fall in love with Patagonia :roll:

Re: Shipping 1 cubic. Chile to UK.

Hi, I've got a partial container load that I want to ship from way far south Chile to a port in Mexico. Not having much luck coming up with anyone who wants to deal with shipping household goods in a partial container load, because they know it's going to just be a one-off shipment.Can you let me kn...

Re: Cat calls when I am with my children.

Ok, that WOULD make sense. But is it the same all over Chile? In the cities as in Patagonia? Because I never promoted the kiss, I got pulled into it. When I would put out my hand to shake, they would pull me in for the kiss, which is what made me think that was what was warranted. Can anyone speak t...

Re: Cat calls when I am with my children.

Ok, the first time it happened, I was being introduced to someone my boyfriend had hung out with a few times. I was pretty shocked, but the guy was quite lecherous towards me throughout the duration of knowing him. My boyfriend doesn't speak much Spanish, which allowed this guy to say things to me. ...

Re: Cat calls when I am with my children.

Great. Just my luck! The oddest thing about it is that it's been mostly older men, in the 65 to 75 age range,from whom I would normally expect gentlemanly conduct.

Re: Cat calls when I am with my children.

I lived in New York for many years, and was constantly harassed there, to the point where it became white noise that I didn't even notice. And then when I moved to California, and it disappeared, I did find myself wondering if I wasn't attractive anymore. This doesn't mean that I enjoyed the harassm...

Re: Is It Possible To Be Happy With This Life?

I have been very curious lately in what it is that makes people so ready from before they even get to Chile, that its the place for them----nothing wrong with that but to me maybe a little dangerous and then later, the stages that posters seem to go through and evidenced through their comments in f...
