Re: Prefabricated Houses

Thanks for those links, passport. We need a home for a worker and his wife. It has been interesting trying to find a larger (more than 500 square feet) pre-fab house without 3 or 4 bedrooms. I'm not convinced that pre-fab is less expensive than site-built, but that is a different issue.

I fear the issues you raise regarding chain of evidence are academic. How many Chilean attorneys will become aware of this issue, understand it, contact their client, and bring the matter to court?

Re: Bilingual private schools in Santiago?

As a childfree adult with a strong interest in education I would put an elementary-age child in the public system here in uber-rural Chile and supplement that education at home. I also think Britkid's comment above is one of the most sensible things you will read about education in Chile. There are ...

Re: New Member Here

Not on point, but related: Today I was startled to see a small photo studio in "el centro" Curico.
