Re: Cheapest mobile money can buy in Chile, minutes included

Re: chileans feelings about cats

the people who tend to look down at cat ownership (of my friends) tend to be more of the rightwinger variety

Re: WANTED Mountain Bike

Hi there,

I live in Puerto Varas (Lake District)

i have several high end bikes
Cannondale, Lynskey, Orbea,

I'm pretty tall, 1.92 meters, so good to know the size
