    Painter

    Mike Mike Even though I spoke to him on that number recently, it does seem to be shut down. I'm sure I'll see him soon and find out what's up. I suspect a phone theft, in which case he should have it (the number) back in a few days, but I'll find out. I still highly recommend Juan's work and...

    New passport, new entry stamp

    If you have an American passport, the embassy will give back your old one stamped "invalid" or "expired" (or something like that) which you can produce one exit to show your entry stamp. The new passport was delivered by courier in a couple of days. You have to request an appointment by email...

    Hate North Americans?

    I usually don't get involved in these "political" discussions, generally because they go nowhere, solve nothing, and promote ill will. I am however getting a little weary of silly useless condemnations of people and policies, without providing a coherent alternative! It s VERY easy to...

    "Asalto" in Vicente Lopez this Sunday!

    Hey guys! My friend Julieta (who some of you might have met at one of our burger burns) is having a birthday party this Sunday, and she is having what she describes as "an asalto" The deal is everybody brings whatever they want to BBQ (and drink) - kind of a BYO-BBQ! I'll have a fire going, so...

    Commuting from Boating or San Isidro Chico

    Hey there! I think you will HATE commuting from Zona Norte to Puerto Madero! There is NO "good" way to do it, especially in rush hours, which it sounds like is when you will be needing to go! You may really want to consider finding a place in Puerto Madero, which is a pretty upscale...

    Mosquito Madness

    Hey guys Go to the farmacia and ask for "lidocaina viscosa" or "xylocaina viscosa" (same stuff) It's cheap, and a few drops on an insect bite will stop itching in a minute or two - probably for good! Works on burns, toothaches and anywhere a local anaesthetic can be put! Good stuff to have...

    Christmas & New Years Eve????

    RobeartoNYC et. al. I agree that both Christmas and New Years are not good nights to plan on going out in BsAs. Restaurants are generally either closed or offering expensive fixed menus that are seldom good and always overpriced! I'm seriously tempted to host a New Years eve party here at the...

    Cheapest way to book airfare in Argentina?

    The downside of air travel, for me, is that after traveling to the airport (several hours early), waiting on lines, going through "security" and having to get from the airport to town (never close, except for Jorge Newberry!) I find the bus is frequently a more comfortable option. Even the trip...
