Re: Correos Chile is horrible!

Yes, Correos de Chile is horrible, incompetent, etc and they will lose stuff that is sitting right under their noses.

Re: Wanted: parcela

I guess I should define airport as somewhere that has jet flights to other cities. My reasoning is that a place big enough for a jetport will also have a decent hospital and access to goods and services.

Wanted: parcela

Howdy folks, it's been a while. Thinking about long term stuff, provided that Chile stays mostly-not-FUBAR over the next 20 years, retirement here seems like a sound idea. And so I'm on the lookout for a parcela on which to eventually build my retirement bunker with the following stuff in order of i...

Re: Smog-Induced Driving Restrictions?

I see that they haven’t updated the “aire santiago” app since the 31st of August. Does this mean the winter driving restrictions are over with? Or is it just standard internet weonismo po?

Re: Source of cheap(er) lisinopril?

Re: Source of cheap(er) lisinopril?

Wow what a difference, the generics would at least cut it down to US$20/month. Thanks for the suggestion. I used to just buy it OTC in Uruguay but my trips there have become much less frequent.

Re: Source of cheap(er) lisinopril?

I’ve tried a whole library of anti-hypertensive drugs from NA and SA, and either they don’t work, they shut my kidneys down, or they make me comatose. So far the only thing that works is lisinopril.

Re: Smog-Induced Driving Restrictions?

Hey :) Well they sort of almost fixed the internet after 2 years of complaining, so now I get close to the contracted bandwidth I've been paying for this whole time. Maybe actually liveable.
