Re: The Economic Impact of the Social Crisis

It is a Movistar thing. Works in all Movistar countries + some additional ones. Pretty neat. Furthermore, the pasaporte roaming is a ok deal.
Claro seems to have an even better roaming offer, but haven't tried it.

Re: entering Peru with Carnet only?

All mine were in the airport.
In BOG, once or twice they asked questions, but the supervisors normally know the rules. In LIM I have never been asked anything in regards to my passport

Re: entering Peru with Carnet only?

Agreed on always carrying the passport as well, but I have been to Peru more than 10 times only showing my cedula. Never had any problems

Re: entering Peru with Carnet only?

You need a passport if the country you're a national of doesn't have an agreement with Peru allowing you to travel with your ID only. This doesn't have anything to do with your Chilean permanent resident status. Source: https://www.migraciones.gob.pe/index.php/control-migratorio-de-ingreso-de-extra...

Re: Chile Political and Social Crisis 2019

Today in Plaza Italia could be interesting. Apparently, carabineros have posted or will post 1000 officers around the plaza.

Re: Chile Political and Social Crisis 2019

Videos are videos, but look at dates and when the video was actually recorded. You say "another day ..." indicating that the videos were recent. Some are from the first weekend of the demonstrations.
What do you wish to achieve with posting these tweets?

Arriving Santiago airport at 6 pm today, renting a car and need to get to Providencia/Manuel Montt area.

Anything in particular brewing that I need to look out for?

Haven't been to Santiago since May, don't miss it at all.
Use Waze. And obviously avoid Plaza Italia.
