Re: Why is it raining now in Chile?

What's wrong with a little rain once in a while? The mountains look great snow capped and by tomorrow we will be able to see the whole city if you're high enough.

Re: Calling a number with Skype ?

To answer your original question...

+56(2)number for landline in Santiago.

+56(9)number for cellphones.

IMHO Papa Johns is still the best. I didn't particularly like Pizza Hut in the states and I like it less here. It's a compliment to call Pizza Pizza cardboard.

Re: Who has the best hamburgers near Santiago?

JR does not make the same quality burgers here. Tried Mr. Jack and they do a good job at covering their burgers with as much crap to hide the actual taste. Maldito Chef in Ciudad Empresarial has always found a way to fuck something up, either the food or the service. I will try Burger Lounge.

Who do I have to kill to get a decent sandwich?

Been craving for a reuben. Tired of the churrascos, lomitos and/or ave. I know the answer to this, but is there a possibility that an expat has actually opened their own deli, where they serve something other than meat topped with a mountain of palta and mayo?

Re: Dear Expat Family

In a way, I was jealous. They seemed to be mostly happy with their current situation and were completely open to anything that came their way. Their attitude stucked me as the type that would make it once they decided to settle down.

Re: TRAVEL ALERT -New rebellion in the patagonia: Aysén

As a correction, the proper phrase would be "get off my lawn!" In this example it would be appropriate to add "dirty hippies" at the end of the phrase.

Re: El legado del Che, tomo XVIII

If it wasn't for the time spent in Miami, I would only know Che as the guy on the t-shirts. Attila the Hun? Joseph Stalin? Slobodan Milosevic? Vlad the Impaler? Pol Pot? Any of those names figure into your education? Wait... you went to public school in the US, right? Yep, yep, yep, no clue. El Che...
