    Residency after marriage

    Thank you for your reply! I know that both Sweden and Argentina permit dual citizenship, no problems there. At the moment that is not something I'd go through with though since I'd have to be in Argentina for at least a couple of years, and it is a lot better "deal" for my husband to get a...

    Residency after marriage

    Hi everybody This thread seems to be sound asleep but I have lots of questions on the topic so perhaps somebody could help out :) I married my argentine husband three weeks ago in Sweden (where I am a citizen). We have lived here for the past two years and he recently got his permanent residency...

    Thinking of coming back to BA

    I have to admit I don't really understand the question.... Does Paris become dead in winter? Does London? Or New York? It's a big city! People live here all year round. Maybe they put on a bit more clothes before going outside in "winter" (since I'm from Sweden I concider the argentine notion of...

    Blonde small girl in Buenos Aires. How dangerous will it be for me??

    Oh, I do have to add: speaking Spanish will get you a loooong way, in fact, people who look at me as a foreigner treat me with a lot more respect when they hear that i speak Spanish fluently, being blond or not! So to all you other rubias out there, put the money on spanish classes and not on...

    Blonde small girl in Buenos Aires. How dangerous will it be for me??

    Hej svenska flicka! As your fellow countrywoman living in BA for about two years now I can tell you you have nothing to fear. I'm also blond although not so much petite as "gordita" :), and well you'll get a few comments, you'll learn to ignore them or say something insulting back if you...

    Crafty People?

    Joy! This is just the sort of thing I've been looking for! I occasionally do a bit of knitting and stiching, I'm quite good at making mittens if anyone wants to learn (tho I doubt that in this heat :D). I'd love to join if you are meeting again. I'll send you a PM, mini, right away!

    Bored in Buenos Aires

    Ok, corner of Honduras/ Uriarte - Finis Tierra Bar! I might be a little bit late (I know I was the one who said early but, some work-related stuff came up...) but I'll try to be there at about eight thirty at the latest! I too am blonde and tall-ish (to argentine standards at least)! My mobile...

    Shipping from overseas?

    Actually it's illigal to bring a lot of stuff into Argentina, and the only reason you manage to do it is just because the guys at customs aren't very effective. Among other things, tabacco and coffee products (even ridiculously small amounts), all sorts of fresh food (I tried to cross the...

    Ibero TEFL certificate program

    I have to say that TEFL courses as far as I'm concerned are a big hoax... i did mine online for about 200 EUR three years ago and that was a big waste of money. I got three teaching positions here in BA without ever having to show any qualifications - and I'm not even a native speaker. Save...

    Shipping from overseas?

    My parents sent me a package in may 2008. Through the tracking number I found out that it was held by customs here in Argentina in september 2008. Then it disappeared for several months and even though i tried to track it down by calling the customs office etc. I never got it and finally gave...

    Date expired candies on tren's y subte's

    Haha, I've on several ocations bought minced meat from my local Coto with the production date set to the day after I bought it! Quite interesting to be able to buy tomorrow's food already today... Anyway, I don't think you should rely too much on these dates anywhere in the world in general, and...

    Bored in Buenos Aires

    Tuesday sounds great! I'm up for that! There's a nice bar, quite "tranqui" on the corner of Honduras and Uriarte in Palermo (two blocks from plaza serrano) where we could meet, it's called "Finis Tierra". Unfortunately I'm working early wed. morning so I'd prefer a quite early start (not very...
