Re: Transferring money from EU bank acc. to Chilean bank acc

They might charge a minimum US$40 for wiring the money, de...

Re: Natural Sea Salt

I found some crude sea salt at La Vega. It looked pretty unrefined, slightly greyish in color and with very uneven granules some of which were around 1 cm across.
