Re: A LOT OF ENGLISH NOVELS FOR FREE

We can take all of them and donate them to a school library - only catch, have to ship. If no one steps up, and dropping off a box a TurBus cargo is an option, just let us know.

Re: R.I.P. Steve Anderson, of the Santiago Times

Steve's legacy of environmentalism - Patagonia Sin Represas & fight against Pocuro's housing development & for the Rio Trapen - were the focus of many comments. His immediate...

Re: Putting a fence

For perimeter fences we use our trees sometimes, but I've had good luck passing the word around the neighborhood and someone wants the work, 2500-3500 per 2M fence post - wood varies - delivered.

We've examined investment properties (apt/house) and I even met with someone in Sntgo who manages a large portfolio of properties, and his advice was - unless you can really screen who you rent to, full financial background check, re...

Re: death of neighbor

I've been to the funeral of a senator (speeches, more theatrical) in the city and to the velorio, or the several day (3?) attending period in the rural campo where you go, sit with the family, and the body is presented in a formal casket in the middle of the living room, candles and flowers all arou...
