Re: Possibly moving to Chile

I think the problem is that there are no regional accents in Chile, makes it difficult for them to understand even the slightest variation from the norm. It is what you say and the way that you say it. An old lady the other day said to me " me encanta tu acento Alemán ." "Gracias" , I said, forbear...

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

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...
