Re: MOVING TO CHILE

It would be difficult to speak about such dog-ma and deg-radation of a country which from space, probably looks like a prostitute's leg kicking a high heel. Don't get me started you wuss.:-)

Re: Eireann

Big time Michael. Would be good to have another paddy around the place. I think I'm the only one in Valdiva.

Re: MOVING TO CHILE

Ha! Gloria, I seek any whisper of Irishness in anything. My bed has been made here in Chile and in it I will lie, but jaysus just gimme a glimpse or connatotion of my real home and I will drool. ps - could have had word-fun with your surname but decorum would have probably prohibited it.

Re: MOVING TO CHILE

I'm not sure from where you hail Shalcollins, but with an Irish 'Collins' surname I would gladly help best I can, albeit basic. Gloria is right though. You would kinda need to first check with your nearest Chilean embassy to see the procedure. If there is no Chilean embassy in your country, try next...

Re: Opening A Bank Account

Too much to read so apologies if I am being a bit lazy, but if I can pour any of my experience. I opened up an account with Corpbanca with just a temporary visa. Caveat..... It was a joint account with my Chilean missus' name as titular. So if you have someone of local birth, bob's your aunt and fan...

Re: Transferring money

Britkid, I could send and negotiate fees any amount before the cessation of their agreement with Chile. I spent a few weeks trying to eek out Transferwise's answer as to why their sudden lack of service. I was eventually left with something along the lines of "We are working on an agreement with Chi...

Re: Eireann

Direct translation: Seldom it happens. If there is anyone with Irish, gis your address and you won't be on your own. I am here to help without the "Gobshites". Alan Lads and lassies, I sent that on Christmas day bordering St.Stephen's day. Maybe the day after, who's counting. Was emotional with a bo...

Re: Eireann

Fair play to you Gloria! Love your spirit. Jaysus, about to say a few things about English... Can we still be friends after? Ok,how about we just speak through this medium language though. Has developed well, encourages appetite and like any developing language, displays envy for their former langua...

Re: Eireann

Proinias! How dare that priest tell you that. Jaysus man, I hear ya. Ireland has a lot to fix. Sorry for you. Join the queue I'm afraid. Were you Jesuit/CB/Holy Ghost? Not that it really matters but I gladly suffered two thirds of the above. I came out the other end with a smile cos I played sports....

Re: Eireann

Jaysus - I could reap/write and sow some sorrow and happiness from poor Peig's story. The poor divil. An awfullly hard and potent introduction to Irish 13 year olds I must admit. Even I struggled with fluency. Honestly, I wouldn't permit it had I had control over Ireland's education system back in t...
