Thanks for the positive balancing news on South America

Please feel free to get in touch.

Be brave, be brave, the Myan pilot needs no aeroplane.

Sure, you've mentioned SA tours on other posts, right?

Does that mean you and/or other DPers are going to physically be in South America soon?

Oh boy does it ever

It is really reminiscent of "the old days" when everything always came down to the same dozen or so patriots. We all either know each other or know somebody who knows each other. And it's an environment of trust.

Trust is facillitating this commerce. It's highly liquid in ever sense.

Uruaguay is what has my

Uruaguay is what has my attention.

Kinda bummed out, was hoping that would be our little secret

Now the word is out and it's got a lot going for it. The thing of it is, the really great deals are pretty much gone, money has been flooding in from Argentina for example and it's getting big right up.

Mine too

outside of Montevideo though, there's not much there.... from what I hear.

Oh there's a lot more there with more to come.

Urugay was where Argentina went on vacation. While they could afford it. Lovely tourist options from 5 star to primitive, it has a coast, there might just be huge investment in the weed industry and it's got some of the best banking laws left on the planet. I'm gonna go ahead and bump Argentina from this spot so that makes Uruguay the 3rd lowest murder rate on the continent. It's third on the continent in terms of ecnomic freedom as measured by Heritage Foundation.

Yeah, it's a gem.

Yeah, but

can I find a '35 ford in the weeds, behind a barn maybe?

There are video stabilization programs

They can take the bobbing motion out of videos.

Free includes debt-free!

That's his name.
Don't ask me why they named him that.
I think it's a band name.

Chile has been on my mind

ALOT lately. Tell us more. I was disheartened to discover today they are a member of the OECD

I was surprised to learn

That they are actually a worldwide income tax country if you are a permanent resident or citizen living in Chile. I may still go that route though since I can go with US taxation instead (nothing up to 90k). Unless I give up US citizenship, but hopefully by that time I could get citizenship elsewhere, or live outside Chile in which case you don't pay those taxes.

Great points!

What do you plan to do for income, if it's ok to ask? And what other S.A. countries have you checked out?

I work in web development

So I can work from anywhere as a programmer.

This is my first South American country, and I've been here about a month. Paraguay is also on the menu for sometime in the next year. I will be documenting that experience as well.

Great, please do keep us posted. Your video was awesome.

I want to go to Paraguay and check out old cars and trucks. When you go there, send lots of old car pics, lol!
