Check out land in Santo Domingo area. Land is less expensive than SanTago and air much cleaner near the coast. Many there are earning money from the palta (avacado) orchards in the region. I understan most of the labor is provided by the buyers. Headed there at this moment....

We just moved to the Vina del Mar area and I'm looking for women's groups for friendship, activities, etc. Also in dire need of a very good Spanish tutor or class. Open to all ideas!

hi jimboo - thanks for the reply! i have combed through everything i can think to look at, but to no avail. the only postings/sites i find are for women who are young moms. although I love young people, I need to find some women who are more my contemporaries, ie. baby boomers. any advice you can offer will be greatly appreciated! Thanks again - Marilyn

jimboo replied to the thread Is Business Brokerage a thing in Chile? on the Chile forum:
kevincor initially posted:
My wife is a licensed/certified business broker here in the states (for the last 12 years or so). Similar to a realtor who brokers the sale of someone's home, she brokers the sale of independent small businesses. Is there such a thing in Chile?
jimboo replied most recently with:
hey Kev, most small business here is sold through real estate agents. there are no licensing requirements for agents in chile which is why most have no idea and should be handled with caution. I'm unsure how the big end of town sell there big $$$ businesses. a link or 2 for ya. http://traspasos.cl/ http://search.vivastreet.cl/arrendar-locales+santiago?lb=new&search=1&start_field=1&keywords=&cat_1=141&cat_2=67&sp_common_price[start]=&sp_common_price[end]=&offer_type=offer&image_total=1&searchGeoId=35&end_field=

jimboo replied to the thread Coming in May '14 for week. Need guide for 2 days. on the Chile forum:
kevincor initially posted:
Hi there, My wife and I are coming to Santiago in May for a week (too short but all we could take off). We have rented a hotel and a car. We are making plans to get out of the city for two of those days and would like to take a bilingual person along to translate and guide. Does anyone know of someone who would do that and also, what is appropriate compensation? Thanks, Kevin
jimboo replied most recently with:
which way are you planning to head? do you have an itinerary in mind. 2 days by car is very limiting. personally i would head to Valpo/Vina from stgo and maybe a stop in Pichidangui and Vicuna on the way to the Elqui Valley, a very unique experience and well worth a squizz. Plenty to see in the south also.

So sorry about your loss. This must be very difficult. I would like to see if my connections can help you. I'm a gringo traveling to Chile next week for only a week but there are family conections galore that might be able to help. I am looking at possible relocation myself and have a load of questions and concerns. If we could meet up perhaps I can get you to someone who can help you and perhaps you can help me. Or if you have been aided let me know. Still love to meet up with expats while I'm in the country.

jimboo replied to the thread Thinking of moving to Chile, tired of rip off UK on the Chile forum:
DeeGT initially posted:
Hi, Anyone thinking of moving to La Serena, Chile? I miss that place full of palm trees, beautiful beaches and mountains! Also anyone knows if my 11 year old son will be taught GCSE's and A levels in English at the International School in La Serena or will he be taught in Spanish? I'm a single mum, by the way, and looking for good friends too who can advice me as a good education for him is very important. Some say I should hang on to UK for another 5 years but living here is a rip off! 'm a very positive person but one can't help noticing that this is real madness... Energy companies rip us off with their ridiculous high bills, building traders charge far too much; decent food is too expensive to buy as people are forced to buy Tesco basics and junk AND the government rip us off not just with their extremely high council tax but other taxes also. Charging for a TV licence (or TV tax) when one hardly watches TV is absolutely crazy too! (If it wasn't for my son's school I would have left this country a long time ago)
jimboo replied most recently with:
stay away from here if getting ripped off is not your thing. stealing is the national sport of chile and they'll play anyway they can. having said that i love the place.

My 22 yr old son and I Just returned from a trip to Chlie . 1st time. Rented a SUV and traveled from Santiago to Puerto Monte and many places in between. We were on a discovery mission looking at real estate and did some back packing and fly fishing . Loved it. But gas was 6.10 a gallon US and resturant food is expensive . Don't go to Chile if you want cheap. But road side farmers markets are a bargain.
