But that was just a motivator for me to see and eat as much as I could. Here are my findings: Continue Reading “24 Hours in San Francisco”

Asshole On Board: How To Behave When Flying

Flying nowadays is nowhere near what it was 50 years ago. To be honest, I don’t even know how it was 50 years ago because I wasn’t there, but you get the point.

How To Invoice Boletas De Honorarios For Foreigners In Chile

If you are a foreigner already living in Chile or you are planning on doing so, you will most likely encounter Chilean bureaucracy.

I have performed the experiment of calling the callcenters at ChileAtiende and the SII (Chile’s Tax Office) several times asking the same exact question and receiving completely different answers.
