Re: Switch citizenships for chilean staff

I can't see any advantage to doing it and it might open a whole can of worms for you. There might be questions about why you want to do this. Surely it doesn't matter? My cedula has nacionalidad and not country of birth - not the same place with me. If you got Chilean nationality I can see it might ...

Re: Definition of a "Home" for Medical Cannabis Purposes

Whether or not you would have access to medical marijuana, it is not a good idea to head for a country you do not know if you have any major health issue. Given your pre-existing condition you are unlikely to be able to obtain health insurance and state coverage would be minimal.

Re: Genealogy Help - Vital Records

Look for a Latter Day Saints (Mormon) library near where you live. They have the most expensive records in the world. Explain what you are looking for and they will point you in the right direction. They can order any appropriate documents on microfiche for you. You could look online first to see wh...

Re: Fences and moving in the outback

There is no "right of way" in Chile except for access corridors to the coastal beaches. Everything else is trespassing. You don't need to worry about enforcement unless you trespass.

Re: Pain Medication

I am terrified... I am facing surgery for colon cancer and have seen how reluctant Drs in Chile are to prescribe narcotic pain meds. Now, I am not a kid...I'm 63 yrs old....no plans of abusing anything. But, I can't imagine a huge abdominal incision ( I am not a thin person) and a lot of internal m...

Re: Have a poor friend in Santiago needing cardiac care and possibly surgery.How can I help her from US?

Presumably they have no bank account. One possibility is Western Union. They would need to give you the Chilean ID number of the person collecting the money and the name exactly as it appears on that ID. If the name does not match exactly they will not be able to pick up the money. Don't send large ...

Re: Apartment offer

Have an argument for dropping the price. What would need doing - painting, redoing the kitchen etc. If buying a flat ask if there is a savings fund for future big shared expenses, how many owe their monthly "gastos comunes". These are very important in a small building as fewer are contributing. Whe...

Re: looking for a reliable (?) gasfiter

Yes, my experience with the Sodimac recommendations is that they may be good at what they do but they don't show up - so who knows?
