Where do you live in Chile and Where would you PREFER to live?

Anything at all (keep it clean) goes here that does not fit in to any of the other forums.

What i do hate about the business of restaurants is people eat at certain times, then comes a great big hole of nothingness then they eat again. Dress shops work the opposite apparently, when they eat they aren't buying dresses. Who would have thunk it ;)

Time to set up a pie and dress shop.

Yeah, when there's no pointless bickering over politics, it does get quiet. But at least it's been peaceful. Mostly.

Depends on whether you want country living or urban living. I live halfway between Concon and Quintero

Currently living in Puerto Varas. It's beautiful with the lake and volcanoes nearby. Great cultural events in nearby Frutillar, a larger city nearby in Puerto Montt, and wonderful restaurants and services for tourists in PV. However, I would rather be living a little above Santiago near Arrayan or Las Condes where the air is still breathable, but you have access to the city and it would be easier to develop a network of friends. My wife hated the crazy atmosphere and the aggressive people in Santiago, so here we are. People are very closed here in PV and it's hard to be accepted. I'm thinking of joining a book club or singing in the local choir and perhaps that will offer me a chance to connect.

We found that as well and located south of PM, but still w/ easy access to the PV beer fair, Frutillar's Teatro, etc. We also found there were a few Eng. speaking expats who had been here long term but again, comfortable with their group and things in general, so not very open. Second the motion on hobby. We're involved in our daughter's school (American School) and the parents have been welcoming and active. We've met other univ. prof, teachers, and education-related folks and they've been open as well, so invites to the Teatro Diego Rivera or other events come along.

After staying in Valparaiso and Santiago, I ended up in Vina del Mar and like it.
