    2 tickets for sale MAdonna Sticky and Wet Dec 6th

    Again, tickets are still widely available on the website at cost. The shows are not sold out, which makes sense to me, as I couldn't imagine paying 200 pesos to see this concert. Okay. You got me on a technicality, as I mistyped a bit. Apologies. The site is www.ticketek.com.ar, the largest...

    Delta - ticket info/leaving USA

    When I flew United on a one-way ticket about 2 years ago, the check-guy at the local airport encountered difficulties relating to the lack of a return flight within three months. He just hit a bunch of override buttons, but workers in NYC would be less likely to get frustrated and ignore the...

    2 tickets for sale MAdonna Sticky and Wet Dec 6th

    I disapprove of the idea of gouging people with scalped tickets and am hence writing this. Your friend "wants to get rid of them" for 300% of the tickets' purchase price. That is a bit galling. Fact: as of a few minutes ago, tickets are available for all four days of the series. Fact: there...

    airfares--potentially helpful for anyone coming back from the states

    Pending Argentinian government approval, Delta starts a direct JFK to EZE route on Dec 18th, which is why I think fares for multiple carriers came down so much in the past few days. I booked United just in case the government decides to mess this up somehow. Also, Delta tends to strand me and...

    airfares--potentially helpful for anyone coming back from the states

    Greetings, I figured I'd give out the word that an airfare price war appears to have begun yesterday for flights from NYC to EZE in case anyone is traveling north during the various December holiday seasons. While, in my searching during previous weeks, most fares for early 2009 were over...

    New arrival -- anyone wanna meet for dinner/drink?

    Greetings from a 29-year-old kid from New York (or New England, USA if one jumps back 7-ish years) who would be up for joining in a potential meet-up. I've been in BA off and on since May 2006 (about 75% here) and recently realized I ought go out and meet new people. I'm living in San Telmo...

    Joanna Newsom at Niceto Friday--anyone interested in meeting up and going?

    Greetings, So I just realized that that I forgot to make arrangements and get tickets for Joanna Newsom at Niceto for this Friday. Niceto has been hosting credible acclaimed rock/pop acts since last spring on Fridays, although the only I've seen was the Evens (Ian MacKaye's [of Fugazi/Minor...

    Buying TICKETS to Football games

    www.ticketek.com.ar will sell tickets to most River matches a few days (2???) before without the fees of concerns catering to rich tourists. One can sign up for alerts on their site about when tickets go on sale. For particularly popular matches, it might not be the best bet. For concerts...

    Has anyone had success bargaining with rental agencies in low season?

    Greetings, I was wondering whether anyone had ever been successful bargaining with apartment rental agencies at times of high vacancy. If so, would you mind naming the agency here? Compared to October to April of last year, there appear to many places available based on on-line querying, but...

    Laptops & Working for UK company

    If your internet is a bit on the failing side, I think I have some sites bookmarked with directions to local internet cafes. I'm subletting from a most-wonderful friend who did everything possible to ensure internet would be in place upon my arrival, but there were a few snags with internet...

    Laptops & Working for UK company

    I brought two laptops and no castellano skills with me and just smiled at customs. There was no trouble. I did put one of them in a bag with clothes and other assorted things, though. When one broke, and I received a replacement from my employer in New York, I did not have to pay an import...
