This is a country where you spend a great part of your life waiting in line and waiting....and waiting. Have you or your parents ever visited? I t...

Hello All, Finally came back to the US after 1 year in Chile. I'm a citizen of both the US and Chile so do not have to worry about any visa paperwork, etc. When I got back, the customs officer (or whatever they're called) asked me the typical ''How long were you gone'' and ''what where you doing''. ...

Re: Massive WTF Permiso de Circulacion

Re: Chicureo 2014

McKaig,

I´m curious...how did you end up in Chicureo? Did you come work for an international company and they rented place for you?

P.S: I went to California Cantina last night, service wasn´t that bad, food was great. Tons of Americans watching the NFL game.

Cheers!

Re: BAGELS!!!! (found in Jumbo in Maipu)

And like someone else mentioned, in Santiago they are probably less friendly and approachable than other parts of the country. That being said, generally the more attractive wome...
