Re: Visit Santiago Feb.

Try not to travel intercity from Santiago south on Fridays...really hard to get a last minute bus seat. If staying in city ask for AC or apt/ room facing south. Downtown seemed safe last week, think the vandals are on vacation.

Re: Finally a compelling reason to visit...

I rent my country home from April to September, good mushroom hunting season. We have 65 acres of pine, eucalyptus and mixed forests and it is very rural. Because it is in the 7th region you are centrally located to explore all of Chile. Also full-time onsite caretakers. Reasonable rates, flexible t...

playing devils advocate for a second.

if I had that iranian general's job, I would have kept in place a healthy series of 'dead man switches'; as insurance to stop anyone from trying to kill me.
I would have thought Jeffrey Epstein had dead man switches... just sayin'

Re: AUSTRALIA FIRES WTF???

thank you nwdiver, admin and El Ping. Now I have a better understanding. I think Morrison should be arrested for crimes against nature, for letting it go on this long without asking for the help that was desperately needed.

AUSTRALIA FIRES WTF???

I cannot believe that the world has calmly stood by for the first 3 months of the Australia fires. Only now, after the country is destroyed, are other countries deciding to help. WTF? it is almost like the global fu**ing elites are letting Australia burn so they can go in later and profit from the f...

Re: Building house in Chile the "gringo" way

I am following your posts also. Looking forward to seeing the completed houses. Not the easiest time of the year to get professionals to commit to appointments, January and February are holiday months.

Re: CRAZY PHONE CALLS, and THE CHILEAN MAIL

I just realized today I have one more good story, of "crazy calls"; however, given the context, was not so crazy. more like crazy for the right reasons. It also might be the saddest and most heartbreaking of calls I have ever answered; and I answer a lot of calls from families that have just had so...

Re: CRAZY PHONE CALLS, and THE CHILEAN MAIL

3) Psychiatry and psychology are stodgy ineffective practices, I agree, similar to witchcraft. I theorize a lot of insanity is the loss of connection to others. Studies have shown that hallucinogens can re-establish that connection to others but in a corporate world run by big Pharma and prisons fo...

Re: CRAZY PHONE CALLS, and THE CHILEAN MAIL

I have more than a few pet theories as to why there are so many mentally ill, especially in the united states. The biggest one, It is the way the fields of psychiatry and psychology have been practiced. It does not need to be this way. Most of these people are fixable, we just got the wrong (or at ...

Re: record heat in the south of chile

Wonder what this summer holds as far as extreme temperatures. Locals tell me February is the hottest month. We are having a warm spell in the 7th region. 34C to 35C for next 4 days but since it is a dry heat, it is bearable. And it cools down at night. Because of the dryness it feels more like 30, d...
