FFS. You really need to set foot in Chile. I am putting up a post on another thread. Datasheets. You're funny.

We don't need to "lift the game", so does the whole country because the culture here is not rat race-y. The core values are different compared to English-speaking countries, especially to the US. Adapt or suffer from the reality not matching your expectations.

In my experience, foreigners who are open to learning and flexing their habits do well.

Foreigners who want the same stuff they had in their home country but in Chile – suffer. So I don't believe you'll stay here for long.

We don't get Chileanized, we simply accept it for what it is and adapt. If you don't it will chew you up and spit you out.

Wow, you have really amazed and annoyed just about everyone on this forum with your astonishing sense of entitlement for information, naivety, and slimy intentions.
Considering you are going to get your ass handed to you where ever you end up relocating to, and like beaches, why not try Brazil. Since the you speak only Gimme, what does it matter.
And your predation of young women might go over better there too. Though I doubt it. I was going to let it go, but have daughters. You fucking parasite.

Yeah, Brazil can be yours for small 120k budget. But make sure when you arrive there, don't carry any cash on you.
They can sniff out the foreigners that brings cash on them, then kaput there you go..

Yep Brazil's a classic. I have a brother who's lived there for 6 years and lives behind 2 levels of human and electronic security. He speaks the language and's married to a local. To go out at night off comes the watch, out comes the el cheapo cell phone and he leaves the wallet at home, just leaves some cash in the pocket. He's well travelled and street savvy, never been robbed or scammed but he's got some hilarious stories about those who have.

Some don't even make it into their first taxi before being robbed or stitched up somehow. A Swiss bloke he knew was held up and robbed 3 times by the same guy in as many months. The third time the guy approached, apologised profusely for robbing him previously and offered to buy him a beer at a great little bar just round the corner. They got round the corner and the knife came out again.

Yeah, my friends kid never made out to the taxi collecting area after landing in Rio de Janeiro. Before him making the trip for Brazil to go and root for his team in the last Olympiad there. When I noticed that every time we went out while he was visiting us in the US, he always had his iphone in his back jean pocket.

I told him to conceal it at least in his front pocket but he said his jeans front pocket is too small and tight therefore he carries in the back pocket. Told him, if in the streets of Tokyo, it is perfectly alright but even here in Nor~Cal, a bit careless to have the phone in his back pocket in the street.

Anyway, we stopped in one of apple store and bought him a phone case that clips on jeans or belt then he can just can cover it with his T-shirt. But NO, this sucker did not follow my advise nor wore the phone clip that I bought him, when strolling in the airport corridor of Brazil. He has put his iphone right in his jeans back pocket and snatched ! Some old habit never goes away....

There was a kindergarten school in Santiago that kept getting robbed at night. Like six times. Finally, the robber left a note to the effect: "GET A FRIGEN ALARM!!!"

No those asses clean out everything that can be consumed or sold including the food that was supposed to feed the niñitos.
