More on Chile Now, Fishing Later

Haha. Here is more information that you need to know about Chile.
For Americans to visit Chile, no visa necessary for trips less than 90 days, and there is no entry fee. If you stay longer than 90 days, you must leave the country before the 90 days are up and then come back in to reset the visa; do not do this, and there will be trouble when you fly out.
Chile’s Language is Spanish, in the city you may find some who speak English but in the countryside – forgettaboutit, not many hablan espanol.
The Duolingo app is free, and if you are diligent and practice for at least three months, it will help you get by.
I use Google Translate! You must learn to use this app; it is slow and not perfect. With practice, others will understand you, and you can understand them.
Practice your Spanish and be very patient with yourself and others; you are the visitor, and remember, Chileans are friendly, warm, and hospitable.
Here is a link about extending your visa.
