Re: Internet outages, march 13th 2019

LATAM Internet is easy to explain as they are fucked up anyways. It is the last day of their current super ofertas promotions. On Monday, I had two bookings fail at payment (the first a Chilean card and the other a US card). Had to use an insider connection to retrieve one of the failed payment boo...

Re: Sugary food in chile

Most people are years behind in studying and applying the relationship between diet, nutrition and health. I buy very few packaged products but when I do, I know what is inside. The only decent additive free mustard and/or sauerkraut I have found is imported from Germany. Had to bring a lead free f...

Re: Where to look for lost camera

thanks Britkid, just saw your post and yes, I did check there and even advertised there offering a reward. Nada. I have to admire their diligence and finesse. They survive on our stupidity.

Re: Country home rental

It is not stagnant or stale like canal water. It is a river at the slowest driest time of the year. As mentioned there are ripples of current on the surface but my cellphone camera does not take good photos. As well there are many birds and there are fish.

Re: Country home rental

Re: Correos Chile is horrible!

My experiences with Correos Chile have been good. They send me an email every time a letter or parcel arrives. If there is a problem with a parcel and customs, they give me the correct contact info and I get my parcel. Perhaps the problem is within you and your North American sense of entitlement. T...

Re: Country home rental

The river borders the property. Have a bit of land on the other side. Will walk down there and take photos later in the week and post. At this time of the year it has meandered down to a mere trickle and you can walk across on some parts..but you would get wet and muddy. Other parts you would have t...
