Re: USD bank account

Santander gives the best rates I have seen so far. Under 1% from Interbank rates. I am a client so they might be preferential, but still.

Re: Santiago Vehicle Restrictions 2018

I had not noticed the fact that it only applies within the Vespucio ring. I don't exactly how much of Santiago that covers, but almost all of the eastern municipalities (Las Condes, Vitacura, La Reina and lo Barnechea) are thus not affected - same goes for some of the biggest muni's like la Florida,...

In Santiago I prefer Padthai and Thai House on Manuel Montt.
