Re: anyone around puerto montt\coyhaique ?

If you like sunshine, (I need it for my well-being and vitamin D) here in the 7th region we get about 9 months of it. There are some hot days mid-summer but it does not feel that hot because of the dryness. We have not needed AC and Mom is 91. Lots of breezes and wraparound patios. Winters are coole...

Re: Chile new boarder restrictions, possible closure (developing)

The analogy you shared of using a chain fence to keep out mosquitos was spot on. Once again, no self-respecting virus will respect borders or border closures.

I would expect chile to join travel bans on the UK shortly.

meanwhile, frigen white house says they see no reason to implement a travel ban on the u.k. right now.

yea, they are going to make that mistake again.
Little known law of the natural world... there are no borders for viruses.

Re: car accident with horse

well, you can hire a lawyer and not give them a POA, but what good does that do you? If you want to get anything done they need a POA for signing settlments, court filings, etc. I guess the other alternative is to fly back to chile. Don't know about the extension. not enophe info. ask your lawyer. ...
