Re: Possibly moving to Chile

I went to the crowded hardware store. When it was my turn I asked for un kilo de clavos de 3 pugados. The clerk, a man in his 50"s could not understand. His face went slack. His eyes dimmed. The synapses in his brain shut down, damaged by my accent. He said No entiendo. I repeated. He said No entien...

Re: Questions about moving to La Araucania

If you want to stay in a rural area while looking for your land, I rent the main house at the animal sanctuary to help cover operating costs. It is on 26 hectares in the 7th region between Chillan and Talca. There are no Mapuche incidents here, however, you may miss the rainy climate of Ireland. The...

Re: coronavirus (COVID-19) in Chile

The vaccine protects you from getting the virus, or lessens the severity of it, should you get it. Not sure it stops you from carrying it to another.

Re: Running Red Lights

I drove 20 km to puerto varas and back. I swear 1 out of 3 vehicles was doing something strange to outright dangerous. Glad I am not alone in seeing this behavior. It is happening globally, and as I stated before, the "experts" are not addressing this burgeoning collective insanity, almost as if no...

Its not defensive driving, its because they are usually distracted by other activities, such as phoning, or even just picking their noses when stopped at a Red light. The only time they take off quickly is wh...

Re: Running Red Lights

I have had a front and rear view almost-360-degree dash cam for a year now, ever since a woman ran a red light in town, texting while driving and broad-sided my car. Nobody hurt but substantial damage. It was rush hour, most people too busy to hang around and be witnesses, it was my word against her...

Re: Running Red Lights

There was a study in the states that traffic accidents had actually increased durring the pandemic due to people driving faster with the misperception there was less traffic and thus it was safe to drive faster, run lights, etc. personally, I don't just drive defensively. I drive under the assumpti...
