How To Museum Like A Boss: A Guide To Getting The Most Out Of Buenos Aires’ Art Institutions[The Bubble]
MAMBA. Originally thought to last until February, it has been extended through May. Just in case you live in a Ziploc bag, let us go over it one more time. This insane exhibit is made up of a labyrinthic structure that takes you around eleven different scenarios one more trippy than the next. Dealing with a wide spectrum of artistic languages, it is not apt for people with claustrophobia or people suffering from heart disease. Which should give you a pretty good idea of what kind of an exhibit ...

Macri Submits Himself To Judicial Examination To ‘Clear His Name’ In Panama Papers[The Bubble]
Since the story broke last weekend, Macri and his administration have denied any wrongdoing: because he allegedly didn’t make any money off the companies listed in the Panama Papers, he is not legally required to mention the companies in his tax statements, they say. However, many are skeptical of his purported innocence, and many others denounce what they see as a breach in ethics.

New 10-Peso Bill Is Going Into Circulation[The Bubble]
Luckily for us mere mortals, the new bill is similar enough to its previous version and doesn’t include the picture of a capybara or some other rodent so chances are you will not have to look at it twice when paying your cab driver in a hurry, just to make sure you didn’t give him a 100-peso note.

How To Avoid Pregnancy Scares In Buenos Aires[The Bubble]
Within Latin America, Argentina boasts a decent standard of contraceptive health care, particularly since the government introduced the provision of free contraception in 2003.

The Must Have Apps For Every Buenos Aires Newbie[The Bubble]
Google Translate sounds obvious, but the app goes beyond the web based platform so many of us copied and pasted our way into getting to know. Beyond simply translating text, the app can translate voice or even images in real time. It’s simple to use, you just type in or select the input method, and Google will do its magic for you. Great for menus, street signs and awkward taxi rides.

Public Transportation Fares Will Increase Between 50 And 100 Percent[The Bubble]
told the press, “but there has been no fare adjustment since August 2014. We all know that inflation occurred during those years. Unfortunately, treatment of transportation tariffs has been quite populist. Why should a person in Córdoba pay more than someone in the Capital for public transport?”

Argentina is hoping for the US to grant their citizens unrestricted travel without the need for a visa too, but that is a little ways off. At the moment, the US has agreed to waive the interview requirement for those Argentines under 16 or over 65. Not much, but it’s a start!

A Ceviche Party at La Mar Buenos Aires[Pick Up The Fork]
La Mar Buenos Aires was probably one of the most anticipated restaurant openings in 2015, and a year later, this Peruvian cebichería is still a hit. Many were skeptical that the seafood-centric spot wouldnt be so hot in Argentinas not-so-seafood friendly capital city, but Gastón Acurio and his crew have yet again managed to win over our hearts []

Dating With Deby: Tales of Internet Dating in Argentina..Those Men, Those Men, Those Argentine Men[TangoSpam]
In other words big talkers or full of hot air.  The question I get asked most is why I live in Argentina. Concentrating on me is a good way for them not to talk about themselves. Being a foreigner gives them an opportunity they might not have with a local woman.  During this conversation I find out that this guy lives on his small boat because the wife got the house.  He works as a lower level employee in a company.  None of this really matters but he told me online about his boat which he made
