    Stuck With Extra Pesos, ISO ASAP Exchange at Great Rate

    Looking for $100 for 4500 pesos. Has to happen in the next 6 hours and near Austria y Pacheco de Melo. Don't have time or patience to bargain. I've got all 100s, looking for nothing smaller than 10$ US bills. Thanks (and sorry if I am violating any posting rules here), Bob

    Chauchau Alternative?

    I've been buying and really enjoying chauchau. But now the season seems to be over. I've seen something similar but a bit fatter but also flatter. Maybe these things...

    Pixel 2, Google Fi , 2 phone numbers - 1 local, 1 US ??

    I have a Pixel2 and Google Fi and I am convinced that I can have two numbers. Does anyone do this? Experience? In the past when visiting here I used a Nexus 5 and just exchanged my US sim chip for my Personal chip. Of course that has obvious disadvantages but saved me a lot of money. This...

    Watching US Netflix? (Google Fi VPN?)

    Thank you so much Jeff. That line on my phone is not even so hard to find. I just had to understand that the phone could not perfectly emulate the TV remote which I use at home. Thanks again!! Bob

    Watching US Netflix? (Google Fi VPN?)

    There are other licensing options. One of them is $12.95 for one month.

    Watching US Netflix? (Google Fi VPN?)

    (Since I started this thread) here's been my experience thus far. On my Pixel 2 phone all I had to do was turn on the phone's VPN and, bingo, I was able to access Netflix (but not Amazon Prime). I then cast to a ChromeCast I brought along and that experience has been pretty good. My only...

    ISO Ham Flavoring

    Thanks Nancy. I like that suggestion. A bit more work than the powdered flavoring I have been using, and less healthy, but I think it would taste way better. But I think I will continue to look for ham flavoring and will let you all know if I find any. Bob

    Did Trump save Venezuela?

    This is an interesting article - but since I subscribe to Bloomsburg Business Week I am not sure if the link will work for others. https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2019-01-25/cocaine-payola-how-maduro-keeps-top-military-brass-in-line

    ISO Ham Flavoring

    Has anyone seen any kind of ham flavoring here? It's so great on steamed green beans. I don't mind killing an afternoon wandering around China Town, but if anyone knows of a sure source I'd sure be interested. Thanks, Bob

    Did Trump save Venezuela?

    I could never support Trump. I would probably support the right kind of intervention. For example make foreign aid (most of which probably ends up in the pockets of corrupt officials and politicians) dependent on a reduction in violence. If you are a politician or official who is in a...

    Did Trump save Venezuela?

    That seems to be an argument against leadership. Pretentious, pompous, asses most of them may be, but it seems to me that in general societies need leaders. Would you argue that the world would be a better place if the US had had the humility not to intervene in WWII? I am a great fan of...

    Did Trump save Venezuela?

    I'd say that while only 0.1% of society makes it into history books, all people who work contribute to civilization.

    Did Trump save Venezuela?

    I keep thinking that maybe the US (my homeland, but I did not vote for you-know-who) should do something about Central America so that people there do not have to flee violence. But then I recall what happened many years ago when we intervened there. However, while we should certainly learn...

    Spent two hours in immigration at EZE today

    I have been under the impression that Global Entry only helps you on the US end. Does it get you through immigration around the world? I don't recall seeing any special lines for Global Entry at EZE. Thanks, Bob
