    Expats making friends with Porteños

    Is laziness a virtue in Buenos Aires?

    I'm a local living in Palermo, I also lived in the US for five years and I know that we Argentinians are not all the time 100% happy or jumping in one leg, but we have a very good sense of humor and we like to chill and be with friends on our spare time. I have to tell you, I'm no lazy guy, I...

    New to B.A. in a Couple Weeks

    I wouldn't say it will be hopeless to meet locals, I'm one and I've met several people from this forum and hanged out with them, and still do. If you guys have a female friend to introduce me we could do like a double date and make it a spanish lesson at the same time.. :p Saludos, Mariano.

    What about having dinner instead of lunch, since a lot of people may be working during the day, and may not be able to make it for lunch. Plus we could go to a bar afterwards. Saludos, Mariano.

    Online Subte Map

    There's also a great website, and since I'm a local here I use it all the time. Maybe you guys already know it, but anyway, here it is: www.comoviajo.com It tells you which "colectivo" to take, where to take it. Also you can get driving directions. Well hope that helped. Saludos, Mariano.

    Long term friends?

    I kinda disagree, because I'm a local here in BA, and I've met several people from this website and also through my english teacher, she's from connecticut, and introduced me to many expats, and we became friends.
