Video: Looking for an Apartment in South America

As you have probably been able to read through the lines, I haven’t been too successful in finding an apartment in South America which is quiet enough to read, write and think, let alone to sleep.

Finally, I consulted a real estate broker who suggested this apartment in Humberstone in Chile:

I signed the contract right away.

The owners were nice enough to furnish the apartment. In the kitchen, there was even a bowl of fruits waiting for me.


Coziest of all is the living room.


The bedroom for guests is rather spartan, but at least you’ll have a stove when you visit.


What I found particularly attentive was that my remark about writing lead to the provision of a typewriter. Finally I can type the N with a tilde: ÑÑÑÑÑÑ.


Next to the town there is a very windy hill from where I can offer you a panoramic view over the whole settlement.

I believe Humberstone is the only completely car-free town in all of South America. Exemplary! The only downside? I still don’t have internet.

Travelling the world and writing about it. I have degrees in law and philosophy, but I'd much rather be a writer, a spy or a hobo.

    Great place you have found for youself Andreas. Love the art of the photograph with the typewriter. The stove is quite alien for me but cute. A better picture of it will compliment the one with the typewriter I suppose. It will make an interesting story telling postcard. Great place. I hope you enjoy it.

    • I also found the stove funny. At first, I thought it was a magician’s hat.

      Hahaha. It looks like it. Would love a better picture of it. The chair can be also part of the postcard pictures.
