Re: Chile Political and Social Crisis 2019

I am an optimist. The glass is not only half full, it can always be topped up. I do think the time frame for a new constitution is too short though. If the numbers quoted above on page 25 are honest (rather than genuine) a couple concern me. The idea of the funa was born to annoy those who had promi...

Re: Chile Political and Social Crisis 2019

Although the situation is disturbing I feel that has more to do with the damage being done to jobs and infrastructure. I have a close friend who is still a big fan of the military years and sees 1970 around the corner. She has been going mental on whatsapp. I imagine others are afraid of this happen...

Re: Looking for freezer paper to wrap meat

Is that like parchment paper to line cake tins? Jumbo has Reynolds brand online.

Re: Chile Political and Social Crisis 2019

Just came through Manquehue metro station. Hundreds of kids yelling and jumping around so they closed the station. People who need to use it out of luck.

Re: falso aviso de infracción

That is what I feared because I don't even know how one would deal with it.

Re: The Economic Impact of the Social Crisis

I can never see those links from La Tercera as I think you have to be subscribed.

Re: State of emergency and curfews, October 2019

I have had to lay down a rule of not discussing it on the phone/in texts with family members living outside Chile. What they were seeing online and what I was living were diametrically opposed. It always ended with my blood pressure rising. Since now everyone has an opinion on everything, it is quit...

Re: falso aviso de infracción

I had this situation in early September. It was a foto radar and the fine was for driving with restriction (in June) in a part of the city where I never drive. You are supposed to get 2 notification. With the first one you can ask to speak to the judge but the 2nd one just gives you 5 days to pay.I ...

Re: State of emergency and curfews, October 2019

I have had to "snooze" a few friends on Facebook. I tun the sound down when BBC reports (they have 1 reporter covering South America) on anything happening in Chile. But I was used to that after the 2010 earthquake. The source for news was not taken from traditional sources, they handed it over. I h...

Re: Foriegners, STAY AWAY FROM PROTESTS!!!! Obey the curfew

A very timely reminder to stay away from protests. Unfortunately, some FB pages which cater mainly to foreigners have foreigners calling others to join in the protests today. A link to this thread was removed as "off-topic" as were others telling people to stay away unless they want a free flight h...
