First case reported in Chiloe.

As of yesterday they weren't allowing anyone to enter OR LEAVE the archipelago, which, although I wasn't planning on going anywhere, is still disconcerting.

How is everyone else?
tgsziwole2mo
Hi UDZH0EJHJ. Here in Santiago there will be a full curfew for seven days starting tonight, for seven comunas. I live in one of those comunas and I have plenty of food and wine to be here for a month if needed. You have to request a special permit online to buy groceries or go to the pharmacy or to a doctor's appointment.
qmtgnkwzj2mo
Other than that, all good.
wqtnqqftttwhiets2mo
Yeah, I saw that about the strict curfew ๐Ÿ‘€ I'm down to one grocery visit every few days already, but still ๐Ÿ˜‘ but it's warranted.
urlfkzv2mo
Finally they put those comjnas in quaranyine
jflgbkk2mo
Although very late
zikwvdttqvdaurmb2mo
The owners of the cafe on the first floor are here now, second time in two days. All of the restaurants on this street are closed. I'm like WHYYYY
lsldxtrpuwnxxwod2mo
what could possibly be so important. The cafe has been closed since I got here last Wednesday.
cqofnodbowcrypkl2mo
I'll wipe down the doorknobs after they leave, for sure
udwzzzvyt2mo
ejzxvsbc I agree. Went doing my weekly shopping this week (in full gear) and felt like I was the only one in quarantine. Let's see what happens at the end of the 7 days of curfew.
dtgygyw2mo
Man money gives people false entitlement
sqoxwqb2mo
I hatenit
axyinfdpm2mo
cwyhqtgayrxzpsxji Good idea wiping down the doornobs.
rhlgooa2mo
hate it
avweugzotyznubca2mo
Lots of people with masks on the street here, and when I'm out for a walk, wearing my mask, many people will automatically give me a wide berth, for which I'm thankful because the burden isn't always on me to do the evasive maneuvers.

I have a lengthy translation assignment ahead of me today as well as a grocery trip. And I never thought that I would actually enjoy a meal of precooked black beans and canned salmon, but I truly did. Good prep for offgrid tiny house life if I get there.
gioxwqsdzzrxioms2mo
Do the USians here ever think of changing residences to here or elsewhere? I sure am.
pnbmzqa2mo
Yeh there's lots
wkldboyof2mo
Today I had half a roasted chicken for lunch, with fries, and the sauce, omg the sauce.
sjfulghldzmlliuy2mo
About to make an ATM run since Chileans aren't early risers on Sundays.

How is everyone?
gfpzamsny2mo
All good and still not crazy. Yesterday I met with my English practicing group in Guayaquil, this Tuesday I'm attending an English speaking event by Internations Santiago. Last night I had some wine and ended up booking a flight to LA in October with miles. Let's see if that goes through.
faczbdhwt2mo
How did that ATM run go? Are you rich now?
abwlemf2mo
What about selfisolating? ๐Ÿ˜ฌ
jpsnffxwt2mo
LOL
xbuuzitrt2mo
I am self-isolating. I'm booking flights for October, should conditions be met.
ixkrkyc2mo
Howโ€™s everyone doing folks?
kujnvxjycbewtnfj2mo
Ok here! Getting a little bored of course but I know this won't last forever and I have things to look forward to afterwards. It's getting chilly enough to need the heat on for a while in the mornings, and of course clocks go back this weekend (fine with me, I hate getting out of bed when it's dark).
dzpcpiuob2mo
Clocks go back? In Chile?
hkgjpefkh2mo
All good here in Providencia, we earned one more week of lockdown.
cmcusgwjclfmgvbw2mo
Everywhere but Magellanes and points south, as of midnight Sunday.
ltyxxaoxk2mo
Thank you for letting us know. I'm investigating and planning accordingly.
kzxalhxyuvhfsnze2mo
I can't wait for my Sunday morning walk, which I can start earlier thanks to more light in the morning. Streets are deserted till midmorning at least, usually.
ratkydkmmceo2mo
haha i know how u feel gzeltubwzvpvvyipn i was ecstatic to get groceries yesterday lol
mfpbxlznctrlewko2mo
I had to make a run today too
kqxihpdxt2mo
I will go tomorrow. Can't wait. Going grocery shopping was never this exciting.
abruwiglr2mo
Went grocery shopping. What a feeling!
jvceblbtf2mo
Love the outdoors. Now I understand the excitement of dogs when you take them out.
sxsinhwbattn2mo
hahaha right?
hwsxliwxiytg2mo
now i know why dogs get so excited
pmmbhje2mo
Lol
hwvmgavzgrfvhrvy2mo
I checked the coronavirus Worldometer today and ... Chile's infection / death rate is surprisingly not terrible. I think it's too early to tell how the country will be affected, but even Ireland is outpacing Chile at this point (and Ireland is doing a LOT of testing).
zdbdbtluh2mo
I'm feeling optimistic about it, thinking here it won't be that bad. They are lifting the lockdown in almost all of Santiago next Monday.
wujbgrwvfbuheanr2mo
Hmmm, premature, but ok.
pbfimxw2mo
Too premature. I think Chile not being as dense, will save some things.
vfoybmd2mo
But Santiago is full of santiaguinos. Itโ€™ll turn to a shit show any time now
qielnxqfmnk2mo
For anyone who isn't on the STEP updates "LATAM Airlines has announced it will cancel all outbound international flights from Santiago beginning Monday, April 13. The U.S. Embassy is aware of seat availability on a LATAM flight the morning on Sunday, April 12 from Santiago to Sรฃo Paulo, Brazil. There is a same-day connection available from Sรฃo Paulo to Houston on United Airlines. There is no guarantee that there will be any flights (commercial, charter, or repatriation) from Chile to the U.S. during the period from April 13-30, and possibly longer. U.S. citizens who are not prepared to remain in Chile for an indefinite period of time should contact LATAM or book a ticket through a third-party website for Sunday's flight to Sรฃo Paulo, even if this means purchasing a new ticket and seeking reimbursement for your previous ticket at a later date."
ogrooyfkdgdbghra2mo
Thank you!
wvrkdlmtzcrffbut2mo
Unseasonable rain in Santiago and other places north of here and Twitter is aflurry
bugfbmvtk2mo
I went grocery shopping today and it was beautiful outside. Even with the rain. Saw only a handful of people.
mespgwhdr2mo
It also makes it cozy and all I want now is to stay home, watch Netflix and drink chocolate.
qhmbaremvkiy2mo
mxvfqfmmjxkkp just arrived in Puerto Natales, #chile
smfqcdalmzpbnrci2mo
xmmsfztsordvv somehow climbing is a frequent part of my life
jwutzkfkyuum2mo
haha you climbed over?
tskarceneocg2mo
that looks rusty! careful!
cyxxpjtuyuzlldsw2mo
I did. My shirt snagged on the top wires but neighbor guy unhooked me
rzaqiufajurqqjna2mo
No injuries
uxgsenwqzbax2mo

I'm glad you're having fun!
tkhthrvwkgchwnoy1mo
Fun 3.0
vxklqrefh1mo
I've been going out to pick up my lunch every day. Things seem back to normal out there. With the exceptions of almost everyone wearing masks, restaurants are delivery or take out only, and there's no transportation past 10pm.
ualeushiaobfwlfm1mo
None of the ATMs in town would give me money yesterday morning and there's definitely money in the account. I'm hoping this was a "Sunday morning outage" thing and not something more general with respect to foreign accounts
lbxdprljcirbhpes1mo
I have a doctor appointment this afternoon so will try again then

And I'm glad now that I got extra cash a few weeks ago
ululnyhbb1mo
Hope it is just a temporary glitch. It's happened to me before once. How long will you stay in the island?
pmpnxqwbmghpoigx1mo
I have a medical issue that may require attention in Santiago, but current plan is just to make a base here till end of August if I can get my tourist visa extended.

Sky Airlines has cancelled international flights till end of June, and LATAM has done the same through April 30 at the least.
ylqjxmquklmacisv1mo
I'm getting tired of the frequent heavy rain, though.
cwxvzwcrb1mo
I'll be here until mid-October. I had an appointment at Clinica Santa Maria for the first week of April and was cancelled, but it's nothing serious, just a routine check on a procedure I had last year. Get ready for winter, not sure how it is like in Chiloe, I guess colder and with some rain.
hdaximwgjkuewbed1mo
I don't think it freezes here, but yep, lots of rain. I have adequate heat, thank bog.

My card still didn't work, but I think it may be the card itself. I have a couple of workarounds, not to mention that my regular Visa card still works.
zzgeuskqdjrvjcjc1mo
So it's not the Chilean banks ... it's my card lolsob at least I have an answer.
suaexkhfsgtn1mo
gahhh whatโ€™s the problemo?
mpgvjommvkykmznu1mo
I opened a high yield checking acct with Schwab and they didn't tell me that they would close out my existing debit card. I have to wait till I'm near a Fedex or Schwab office, or can get USPS, to replace it.
rnehhjeoluxsyjlo1mo
LATAM has resumed flights between the US and Santiago ... so much for flattening the curve.

I put in an app for a visa extension over the weekend and I'm inclined to stay put for a while if possible.
fgefgtbwi1mo
OMG really? I hope not but chances are some countries are going to regret opening up so soon. At least for this month I'm gonna do my part and stay here. It helps that I shaved my head and don't want anyone to see me like this.
gwldtqomhmcf1mo
haha time to invest in hats
gwfnijhnudhr1mo
luckily itโ€™s beanie weather in this hemisphere
dhjnqgbjo30d
Oh, yes! I have hats, one australian, one ecuadorian. But I don't think the cowboy look is appropriate for the season. I'm gonna try to buy beanies ๐Ÿ™‚
fvvbouxsgxfiidea16d
First COVID death here in Chiloe. I got my visa extension granted btw.
jawizmgpa15d
Congratulations on your visa extension! And sorry to hear about that COVID death. Are you staying there until August?
opwttnvswullxukr15d
It makes sense to do it. I may move on from my current Airbnb at the end of the stay because, while most of the family seems ok with my being here, I got the opposite vibe from one person today. But if the virus is raging at the end of June, I'll stay put if they will have me.
trdysscnkdaiimis15d
Hah, the vibing person just drove up as I was typing this.
ppelnopdexbgbuji15d
And to be clear I don't expect folks to be thrilled about having strangers around in times like these.
xeeldvdxvyvxkwdc15d
But, y'know, awkward.
acemiuwfh14d
Yeah, not cool if someone vibes like that. On the other hand, due to the lack of tourists there should be plenty of Airbnb options to choose.
zpmdbmizuaih6d
What's the situation at Plaza De La Dignidad and Parque Forestal in Santiago these days? Just wondering ๐Ÿค”
edkjmjnlt4d
No idea. I live a couple of metro stations east and everything is calm around here.
