Re: Foreign credit cards no longer work?

On a sidenote; even before the masks, chilean cashiers had problems hearing whether a foreigner says credito or debito. With a mask on, that is now even worse...

Re: 6500 USD net a month

I would disagree. 4.5 million should be fine for a decent lifestyle in Las Condes. 3 bedroom apartment, 1 car. Not a problem.

Re: ESFERITAP on Mercado Libre

I have purchased countless items (50-100 from a wide range of vendors) on Mercado Libre - Whenever I have had a problem, they have returned the money. If it is a professional vendor (ie not a private person) and they have decen...

Re: The Vote to Write a New Constution for Chile

I thought this was a pretty decent article on the 7 main points of either side for the election on Sunday (probably with a slight apruebo bias, but still fairly neutral) https://www.biobiochile.cl/noticias/sociedad/debate/2020/10/22/las-7-razones-mas-citadas-para-votar-apruebo-o-rechazo-y-el-unico-p...
