Kathy Searching for Expats

Hi I'm a 67 year old female living in Lima Peru. I am interested in finding out some experiences other expats are having in latin american countries.
I may want to relocate again. How is the environment and cost of living?
What about taxes and transporting an automobile from another country?
How is the medical care? I am quite healthy but know eventually I will need medical care. Anyway, any suggestions comments are more than welcome.

Thank you.

Kathy

Hi, Kathy.

You are just over the border from Chile. It looks like an interesting place.

You may find something interesting at these web sites:

Arica: The Alternative Guide

All Chile Forum

The admin for our board has spent a lot of time in Argentina. Search on 'Argentina' on this board.

Cheers,

Gypsy

Kathy, I hope you will tell us about your life in Lima. Are you single? how did you find yourself down there at this time in your life?

It would all be interesting to most of us here.
