Re: CRAZY PHONE CALLS, and THE CHILEAN MAIL

Every few months for a few years the phone would ring in the middle of the night, like 3am. It was always the same old lady looking for her daughter. When told she had the wrong number she would insist that I was her daughter and did not want to speak to her. Nothing would dissuade her. So I tried s...

Re: Chile Political and Social Crisis 2019

What I did notice was that amongst all the panic posts on a travel website dedicated to Chile a very definite presence of a couple of brand new participants either linking to all the worst videos of what was happening in Chile or dire warnings about visiting. These people were, according to them, no...

Re: Chile Political and Social Crisis 2019

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