Apartments are insane. I have a small (3x1 meters) patch of corn. More
than I will be able to eat. I have a little chicken house with 3 dwarf
chinese chickens. I have two dogs. 2 coconut trees. 2 pau-brasil trees
that blossom with a smell so good it's amazing they didn't invent a
lotion with it. At least a dozen different species of bird feed on the
bees that come to those pau-brasil trees. I have a passion fruit
plant, a "jambo" plant (
jambo/imagens/jambo-5.jpg), a surinam cherry plant (http://, two mango
trees, one "graviola" tree (
imgsis/676.jpg). roses of every color and sizes. about a dozen
different flower plants. lots of big pots with chili of different
types. All of that on a area of just 25x30 meters, with the house in
the middle of it.

If you ride into, you're ok, sort of. They can deny you. Tierra Del
Fuego is on Argentina and you do not need to ride through Brasil to
get there from US, actually, if you do, you are taking the long way...
Of course there are ways of temporary entry (I attended a course on
international trading), but most are more trouble than an average
person would like to get into.

Easy and fast and you don't risk having your stuff confiscated.

You didn't click on requirements, did you? The part where it says you
need medical insurance with airlift and satellite phone among other
expensive things?

With 3500 I can pay for round trip from here to Salt Lake City and
rent an economy car for a week, with spare to stop in any walmart
store in way to Idaho to buy camping gear, food and drink for an
entire week.
