Re: Great Boutique in Las Condes with Specialty Foods

Do you know if they have a website, or will ship to other parts of Chile?
Don´t know the shop but just googled it and apparently they do offer delivery service, at least in the 5th region:

Re: Weird home-remedies in Chile

During the 1990s when I was down here on the gravel roads, when two vehicles (even buses) from opposing directions were about to pass, each driver would place a hand on the windscreen in front of his face, with the fingers splayed to provide maximum surface contact. The explanation was that this wo...

Re: Cat calls when I am with my children.

Oh dear. Certainly we will not post any pictures, as all of us are just plain ugly, like every woman on earth who in history has expressed some kind of feminist view. You know, the world commonly divides into two kind of women: the pretty and young ones who love to be cat called and the ugly and old...

Re: Cat calls when I am with my children.

But if all the Chilean women are so flattered about it, why is there an event taking place tomorrow against piropos which, I assume is organised by CHilean women and directed towards them as well? I´ll try and go tomorrow to see if it´s maybe just some post-colonial gringa attempt to force their fem...

Re: Cat calls when I am with my children.

Dear admin, I fail to see the point of your “either or logic” and how somehow my proposal of an "anti-piropo law" gets in conflict with state measures against familiar violence. I didn´t say at all that it should be the most important topic on the political agenda and that all financial resources sh...

Re: Cat calls when I am with my children.

All this is a storm in a teapot churned up by people who need to get a life.
Unlike you, who must have quite the fascinating life, but somehow manage to still post "cero aporte" answers in a discussion you believe is absolutely obsolete... mmmh :roll:

Re: Cat calls when I am with my children.

Out of curiosity I asked a family member who lives in the US if it never happened there. He said it was common enough in the place he lives, construction workers being the main common denominator. Sure, no one says it doesn´t happen outside Latin America. Yesterday I had an interesting thought abou...

Re: Cat calls when I am with my children.

What a coincidence, just saw that this event against street harassment of women will take place on Saturday in Santiago!

Re: Cat calls when I am with my children.

It only takes 1% of the women to smile, blush, or otherwise react in a positive manner to it, for it to never end. If even 1% of that 1% has very positive results like stopping to chat, gives out a phone number, flirts back a bit, or some guy just gets outright lucky as a result of the behaviour, t...

Re: Cat calls when I am with my children.

Cat-calling sometimes does have to do with women dressing provocatively, but I'd venture a guess that Momof3 isn't sashaying around in a mini skirt and high heels just asking for it when she gets cat-called. So I ask, how does she "dress" so that doesn't happen? How is it that I was looked as gross...
