    Has anyone had any luck getting their Covid test results from La Rural?

    Today I went back to La Rural, and they had no record of my test. They offered to test me again, which I accepted, and let me wait for the results. Positive, unfortunately, but it would have been better to get that news last Friday. If you are asymptomatic for 10 days you can fly with a...

    Has anyone had any luck getting their Covid test results from La Rural?

    I had a COVID test Friday, they took my passport number, phone number , etc, and told me to get my results by texting Recibido Test to Whatsapp 1150500147. I have every day, but no answer. The City site requires a DNI or the bot won't talk to me. Any suggestions?

    Covid test in BA to fly to US

    Had mine at La Rural, which was free. Bad news, it's been 15 hours and I haven't gotten the results even though they promised them in 6 hours. I tried getting them through the city site, but they want a DNI, won't accept a passport number. They claim they will send me the results by Whatsapp...

    When was the last time Argentina was expensive?

    The first time I went in 1999 it was 1:1, and things were fairly expensive, I learned to use the bus rather than a taxi, a habit that I have maintained even through the ensuing years when taxis are relatively cheap.

    Dollars in Uruguay?

    Can you use dollars in Colonia? We are only going to be there one afternoon and would love to not have to own too much Uruguayan money. ARS is bad enough.

    Fresh Turkeys

    When I make Thanksgiving dinner in Buenos Aires I spend more time on the fixin's - cranberry, wild rice stuffing, gravy, mashed potatoes, and pumpkin pie. I've given up on finding a quality turkey, and just make chicken.

    Using Uber Or Taxiezeiza From Airport?

    Yes, Silverstar is expensive - a luxury. I don't use it for that reason, but if you have 5 people who all want to ride together, or have a lot of luggage, that's the only option I know of. I had some friends who bought a large chandelier, and that was the only way they could get it to the...
