Christmas Wine Gift

One for the Oenophiles out there. I am visiting my best pal for Christmas and want to bring a "great" bottle of wine for a gift. So, what would you want to receive?

Re: Santiago Colectivo Information

I will be intrepid and reach out to the locals (I think my best bet is the clinic) and report back.

Re: Santiago Colectivo Information

I would except it's always rush hour when I see them and they are full. Plus, my gringo Spanish may not work! When they pass my block, they must be going toward the center anyway. I have no idea of the route they take out toward the hinterlands.

Prescription medication availability

Hello all. Does anyone know how to ascertain the availability of pharmaceuticals in Chile? Specifically, biologics for psoriasis treatment.

Additionally a recent recommendation for a good dermatologist would be appreciated.
