Re: Where to look for lost camera

I "lost" my backpack with laptop, camera, hard drive, apostilled paperwork in the bus station. Thieves make their living from our inattention to our valuables. They are quick and professional. I am sure within minutes my laptop was erased, the laptop tracer app removed and it was resold. All the ple...

Laptop stolen from idiot

Uno momento de stupido for one person is a moment of opportunity for someone else. I took my eyes off my knapsack at the bus terminal in Santiago for less than a minute. We were on the bus before departure and my seat was on the main floor near the door. The knapsack was on the floor in front of my ...

Re: Chile's Place in Latin America

I actuely think that is a good position for the country to be in, in terms of maintaining some sort of political balance. The left is just sufficiently vocal and organized to force the right to stay focused on development objectives, social programs, poverty, etc; without being so strong that they ...

Re: Exotic house cat breeders in Chile

We had a male kitten dropped off at the sanctuary. Beautiful grey panther with green eyes. But he would not hunt. He would lay on a rock all day catching rays and watching the chickens and then run around on the roof all night (feral street cats live on rooftops). I believe that when we speak, or th...

Re: Exotic house cat breeders in Chile

There are so many street cats that are beautiful and would be great mousers if female. Visit La Vega supermercado in Santiago. Some stall owners feed the cats to keep the mice away. You can easily get a kitten there... and save a life. As for selling exotic cats, I doubt many people would pay the su...

Re: The trade wars, they have begun

Just like some investment companies will knock a stock so the prices come down and they can invest, I think this tactic is also done with countries. Chile's prices (real estate for sure) have risen in the last few years. Investors would like to see them fall so they can buy low.

buying bus ticket online without RUT

Hola wise forum members. A friend wants to reserve a bus seat on los libertadores. So far, because he does not have a rut, all attempts have been thwarted by the automated ticket sites. Does anyone have any advice or experience with this? He definitely wants a cama seat. thanks ahead. :)
