    Closed stores

    The Chinese run things now. Don't kid yourself. Asia, Australia, much of Africa. Venezuela is their foothold in SA, among other countries. This is spot on.

    The Guardian: "Time to challenge Argentina’s white European self-image, black history experts say"

    Here you go. Easy to assuage your white guilt by sponsoring a few thousand CAR refugees. Seriously, did any of you move to CABA because of its rich African culture? https://www.msn.com/en-xl/africa/top-stories/central-african-refugees-in-the-drc-living-in-dire-conditions/ar-AAKfcWg

    How to learn Spanish?

    I've been to both countries repeatedly on business development recently. It's what I do. Is everyone else here retired? We need some demographics on the users.

    How to learn Spanish?

    It's from 2013. I can get plenty of current info. How much time have you spent in China and India? And how recently?

    How to learn Spanish?

    The Argentine economy would explode if--in one generation--the country committed to teaching everyone English. Keep Spanish, but become a completely bilingual country. The Chinese are certainly doing this. Then again, they want to take over the world. It's India's one great advantage as well.

    How to learn Spanish?

    The downside to mastering Spanish is that you will be able to understand the Argentines' near-constant complaining about nearly everything. I rather liked it when their chatter was a lilting mystery.

    Luxury cars in Buenos Aires

    One of the benefits of living in CABA is NOT needing a car. Taxis are plentiful, clean and cheap. Good enough for me! In fact, I have a 94 Mercedes E320 Cabriolet collecting dust in USA, in case anyone is interested.
