Re: Up and coming areas - Chicureo, Valle Norte, ect.

Paladin gets my vote for Chicureo PR rep! When looking for property in the area referred to as "Chicureo" start with Colina. There is a town of Colina within the region of Colina so make sure you know which one is being referred to. Due to the recent and constant development of the area you will not...

Re: Moving to Chile & Bringing Children & Parents

Take the time to read through all of the previous discussions on this web site. Many people have asked the same questions many times and those who faithfully answered them in detail get tired of repeating the answers. As I am young and spry I will say this: 1 - "Down Ratbert!" 2- Old people as well ...

Re: School shooting in Connecticut, USA

I find it interesting that everyone focuses on the weapon. I grew up in Puerto Rico down the street from one of the most violent ghettos. At night it was normal to hear gunfire. It was normal to see guns lying around the house with wallets and keys. I practically walked backwards to avoid getting ju...

Re: School shooting in Connecticut, USA

Evil and deranged behavior cannot be explained. How true. Having been closely involved with the Hungerford shootings in the UK in 1987 there was no previous behaviour that could account for what happenned there. The man concerned was a legitimate holder of a firearms licence and was a member of a g...

Re: Puerto Rican living in Talcahuano says hi !

My friend's murder ended up on a Daily Show feature. La Comay was integral in using the local media to fight the corruption we've come to expect. Now La Comay's efforts are spreading to social media. Not her personally, but in the sense that the public feels empowered to do something beyond calling ...

School shooting in Connecticut, USA

As I wipe away the tears I have a legitimate question to ask and I want a thoughtful, respectful and informative answer.


Could this happen in Chile? Why or why not?

Re: Chinos en chile :)

Well let me give you some hope. Our family is participating in a documentary to be shown on TVN. The objective of this documentary is to educate the Chilean viewers about the immigrant population in Chile through the eyes of children. Here is the teaser: http://youtu.be/JkZh4VtclZs A local Russian c...
