Re: Play Baseball in Santiago

Cool post Martin. I'll pass along to the Federacion de Beisbol here. Funnily enough, we are still playing on those old fields next to the Estadio Nacional soccer stadium. In recent years there has been a frenzy around a public works project proposal to eliminate the fields (thus leaving baseballers ...

Re: BootCamp fitness classes in Santiago

Started doing these classes this week and I highly recommend. Really fun way to get - or stay - in shape. Very challenging and rewarding. Don't be shy, if I can do it, anyone can.

Re: Operations & Sales Assistant - South America Travel Comp

A case-in-point: one of my Chilean friends mentioned to me that she saw your advert on craigslist but she will not invest the time to prepare a cover letter explaining all her qualifications without knowing the pay rate is decent. Potential quality employees are less likely to respond than those mo...

Re: Operations & Sales Assistant - South America Travel Comp

It never fails on this board that someone who appears totally uninterested in a job posting writes some comment insinuating that the job is either some type of scam or that the employer plans to pay way under market value for the work. It was a simple question which could have been answered simply ...

Re: Operations & Sales Assistant - South America Travel Comp

Competitive hourly rates based on experience and skills. So it is understood whether or not you intend to waste peoples' time with what is often referred to as "an internship", what is the range you intend to pay? It never fails on this board that someone who appears totally uninterested in a job p...

Re: Train in Cajón del Maipo

I remember the old tren al sur with the sleeping compartments, the steward who came in to make up the beds, the separate dining car (you had to get down at a station to go to dinner and wait for another one to return to your carriage). I remember them with a good deal of nostalgia. I think the last...

Re: Fresh Juice

Good points bearshapedsphere...to me it still seems like the same concept, but you do have a point that people can more easily get their own juice via fresh fruit than people can get their own milk via live cows...so that may shrink the market for people who want/are willing to pay for fresh juice i...

Re: USD/CLP: Please Say a Prayer for Better Rates

Blah, Blah, Blah, Blah. I stopped following pundits credentialed or non-credentialed on these matters a while back. And how about the PM ridiculers who I shut up with a simple chart? Of course, the ridiculers then slyly and dishonestly redirect the conversation to "what about a Mad Max scenario"......

Re: Fresh Juice

Also, I will posit that what you're looking for, "fresh juice," which is packaged, while unavailable here, is also a strange product. If you want fresh, get fresh, and if you want packaged, get packaged. Packaged fresh is...? Afe is all natural, too, though I don't think I've ever had any. It's not...
