Re: What would you want with land in Chile ?

Anyway the more I think about it, the more I know what I am going to try and do, so I guess watch this space. 🤔😀 I figure I might have another 3 or 4 good decades in me , unless I get taken out in an accident or something, I really don't rate my chances healthwise after about 80 the way I have treat...

Re: What would you want with land in Chile ?

Trust me, I know all about "thinking positively". I watched enough times "The Secret" and "dah di dah". I came saturated of "good vibes"and "good will to the new adventure" before stepping chilean soil. But once I got involved with bureaucracy and trying to open a "simple, basic and everyday bank a...

Re: What would you want with land in Chile ?

...... but I know plenty of Chileans that have invested in double glazing and insulation, that's not just how I see it , it's how it is , and they don't really speak any eco talk either, they just do stuff. Guess that's why the country functions reasonably well, nothing is perfect, but it's shit lo...

Re: Chile's Place in Latin America

I was thinking if i had to rank say top 5 to 10 latin american countries to invest in (investment, not living), it would be: 1. Chile (obviously). 2. Colombia (decades of war has supressed their growth, lot of up side) 3. Peru (have my doubts about their corruption problems, but so far so good). 4....

Re: What would you want with land in Chile ?

I am not speakling on behalf of anybody. Just how I see things. Take it or leave it. I think I'll just leave it then, but I know plenty of Chileans that have invested in double glazing and insulation, that's not just how I see it , it's how it is , and they don't really speak any eco talk either, t...

Re: What would you want with land in Chile ?

So now it's only Chileans that burn Wood ? One thing I learnt from you last week was that the same shit happens everywhere, nothing is unique to Chile. Cities in NZ have been battling with wood burning and contamination and wondering what to do since the mid to 90s and restrictions are still not in...

Re: What would you want with land in Chile ?

Soooo? Do nothing then ? Do exactly what then? They could get some thermal leak detectors (36 bucks on Amazon, shipping and duties included Most can't, at least not directly, even if they wanted to. Somehow I think the realities of living here, as experienced by the majority, escape you. Gloria had...

Re: What would you want with land in Chile ?

What about cleaner heating source together with insulation? That would be the "cat's pijamas". Like what, exactly? Imported gas is expensive. Electricity with that winter sobreconsumo surcharge is even worse, even if the pathetic electricity grid that exists in most places could handle the extra lo...
