Re: Housing market situation

I was talking to a woman a few weeks ago who for years has had a hotel and cabanas just outside Pucon. She was saying they'd had many good years up until recently when all the new apartments started coming online. Alot of new owners throw them out on AirBnb and it's been affecting them.

Re: chile's migration crisis

176 people is a tiny drop in a barrel. Every Hatian in the country will be having their own experiences. Here in Villarrica I'd say over 95% of them are working which debunks the generalisation about bosses, skin colour and racism. I wonder at the actual make up of the 176. Included would be the men...

Re: Chile Wealth, Inequality, and International rankings

Been to the US twice and the only places in the world I've seen more abject poverty and beggars are in poor 3rd World countries. I won't be returning.

Re: It's The Bridge To Chiloe Again...

I've met a few of the anti bridgers, all late comers to Chiloe. My response was "Show me me an island anywhere which went backwards after they were connected to a mainland". Silence.....

Re: Exotic house cat breeders in Chile

Such a different cat culture for some. All uncontrolled cats to me are feral, they're native animal and bird killers, millions daily all over the world. I can't count the number of times cat owners have told me their "dear kitty" doesn't kill birds, lizards or anything else they can get their teeth ...

Re: China wants to put One Million their own people in each country?

There're probably already a million plus Chinese in alot of countries. The second most common language spoken in Australia is Mandarin Chinese. I might be wrong but I'm guessing it'd be similar in Canada and New Zealand.

Re: Bringing spices back to Chile

Declared them twice and they didn't bother opening my luggage each time, must have an honest face. Last time the customs bloke was more interested in my Skype address, he wanted to practice his English with me.
