Re: Another one leaves

yea, the slip of an "o" on the keypad of my phone is all that stands between you loosing your account this week. So, you really don't want me looking at your account this week. So you added the extra "o" to "losing" instead?? :lol: Okay, that might warrant being on thin ice and although I haven't r...

Re: Another one leaves

O.k. I am on a business trip / vacation to Columbia this week. I am going to sort this mess out once and and for all when I get back. In the meantime, anyone that would like to interrupt my vacation with some bs this week, is likely to just going to just get deleted (completely). You certainly don'...

Re: Im Chilean I lived in USA for a year, want to practice.

You sound like exactly the type of person we'd hoped to find in La Serena! Hope you find some expats who take you up on this great offer!

Saludos!

Re: Looking for new home for dog (Paul) Again

I found the cure for high energy dogs. It is couple of tennis balls, and one of the plastic throwers ($3,000 pesos at most pet stores ). 5-15 mins a day takes a dog with more energy than a nuclear reactor, down to a well behaved and happy furball for the next 12 hours or so. :lol: Not a chance.

Where the hell are you people hanging out in Chile? In all my years in Chile, I as yet to be in a bathroom that did not flush. In Central America they often had good reason for it because the old colonial buildings had ceramic pipes that had cracked and shifted over the years, but I can not think o...

Re: Best Restaurant in Puerto Varas

We had a strong recommendation for Miraolas, but unfortunately couldn't find it and with stomach's rumbling we decided on La Marca. It was E.X.C.E.L.L.E.N.T!!! Filet and baked potato with sour cream and chives. Sounds simple, but yet somehow they squeezed out the most incredibly tastes from those it...

We have one more night down here in the south before returning home to La Serena and wanted to know the best restaurant here in Puerto Varas. I want to treat some friends who flew all the way d...
