  1. Earlier
  2. No, I have not had any problems from the Chilean side of the import. The delay is because of the lock downs in the countries we order from. Many can not come out to work, and many are understaffed..... The whole chain is broken, and everyone needs more time to finish a task.
  3. Is the reason for the delay because Chile is now strict with import?
  4. You are right. Personally, it did not affect us much. We do miss going out for dinner or go to Santiago to watch a movie, but oh well, that is not a huge loss. Did it affect the project? Definitely! Many containers that we were supposed to get from China and Europe have been delayed a lot. Some have already arrived, but some are still not here.
  5. So it seems that the coronavirus did not affect you guys much. Did it change or affect the project?
  6. No, most restaurants are closed. There are some open, but no sit-in dining is available. You can order and take it with you. Some restaurants offer deliveries as well.
  7. Interesting! Are the restaurants in your area open?
  8. Hello JBerg, The situation in Chile is very different, depending on the area you live in. Let's say if you are in the area of Santiago, which has a lot of people on a small amount of space, the official numbers are quite different than let's say in Santa Cruz. The majority of cases are in the big city. There they take pretty strict precautions. The greater Santiago was on complete lockdown for about two months. Only last week, they started to open a few areas in Santiago because, in those areas, the numbers started to improve. But until today, still, the majority of Santiago is closed. People are not allowed to leave their homes except when they obtain a permit. Each person is allowed two permits per week. Each permit is limited to a specific amount of time, depending on the reason for the permit. In Santa Cruz, on the other hand, the situation is completely different. There are no restrictions on how often someone can leave their house. You can go to stores and banks without limits. The biggest change in this area is that the stores close earlier, there is a limit on how many people can be in a bank/store at a time. This means that there are lines outside, and once you get inside, your temperature will be measured, and you will be made to use a disinfectant.
  9. Hi guys, I am very curious, how things are going with the COVID 19 virus in Chile?
  10. Hello Amanda, Welcome to our site. Yes, to have a Plan B is becoming more and more important. I am glad you are taking steps to improve your live! Our project had a few hold ups with all the things going on in the world, but we are slowly picking it up again. Soon we will have more progress reports on what is happening at our project and more informative blog posts. Hope you can benefit from the information we are offering. If you have any questions, feel free to ask in the Forum.
  11. Hello Everyone, I'm new to the concept of Plan B. Just heard that term today actually while listening to some talks on YouTube. I am interested in changing the way that I live making it more intentional and sustainable while also less dependent on the conventions of working a 9-5 and more towards working to directly sustain myself. To create a life that supports a healthier less sedentary lifestyle as well. There Is a group of us starting to discuss creating a retreat center in NW USA that will be a place people and come and do retreats in small groups and as individuals. The plan is to have a core group that lives on the property to care for it and to support the retreats. We would like to have a farm to produce food that we feed ourselves and our guests. I am looking for ways to learn how to do that. Thank you, Amanda
