Re: Biking Cerro San Cristóbal

well, thank you, I go there quite often myself :-) But I got bored to go alone (difficult to find people who have time during the week), so it would be great if anyone interested contacted me and we could go together!

Re: Riots continue

do you think nobody is aware of the teleton in Chile? Ha!! Na Que Ver...people go crazy for the teleton. A teletón doesn´t change anything, it actually working as cement for the deficiencies of the system, so once a year we can forget about the harsh social inequities by donating some money. That d...

Re: Riots continue

And of course the animals are not spared the violence from these students, as we have seen earlier. So what is the conclusion Patagoniax? Chilean students are lazy, evil animal torturers? For every picture you post of bleeding horses and stone-throwing kids, I can start to post pictures and videos ...

So, in your opinion, how w...

Biking Cerro San Cristóbal

In my most recent attempt to practice more sports, I wonder if anyone in this forum is interested to bike on a regular basis on the Cerro San Cristóbal, ideally on weekdays in the morning.

Re: Riots continue

The "protests" yesterday were illegal. Of course the police took action. They happens when people break the law. The only shame is that more people were not arrested and more of a shame that the parents of the hood-rats didn't get a fine for bad parenting. Hmmm, I´m actually a real fan of the free ...
