    Sending A Package To Usa

    Depends upon if the contents are valuable and how fast you want to it to get there. If not valuable and/or time is not important use Correo Argentino. Otherwise you might consider DHL. Best GS

    Clinton - Trump Live Debate Monday Sept. 26 Th.

    I would agree. I am Republican and the GOP has been ignoring me for about 20 years.

    Strange Thing I Saw Today On Autopista? Why Here?

    To a trained eye the M1 is hard to confuse with other tanks. Also, there have been military sales to Argentina recently, among them C-130s and T-6B Texan II training aircraft though I do not know of any heavy armor being sold. I would agree that Argentina has many more pressing military needs...

    Isis To Argentina: “We’Re Coming To See You”

    That would be possible but I see no motivation for an attack here. In the eyes of ISIS Argentina is politically insignificant.

    Isis To Argentina: “We’Re Coming To See You”

    ISIS will not "aim" at Argentina. They will (if not already) use this as a way-point for people, materials, and money.

    Isis To Argentina: “We’Re Coming To See You”

    ISIS could easily use Argentina as a way-point for both infiltrators as well as funneling finances. Both the frontera and the banking system are full of holes however the country has a high life-style. Would a couple of young recruits rather hover in Islamabad or in Buenos Aires? I saw...

    Selling Property Question

    The deed is written as a "deed of receipt." The deed is not executable unless the money is verified received by the escribano.

    Selling Property Question

    We do it all the time. There is no gap as the escritura (deed) is written so that it becomes effective (transferable) once the deposit is made and confirmed by the escribano. If it is done correctly there will be no risk to the seller. GS

    Young Dog For Adoption

    Hi Everyone, My wife and I picked a dog up off the street last week. We had seen him around town dodging traffic and eating handouts in front of Burger King (no, he's not stupid). Anyway, we got him back on his feet and I've been working with him. He had an eye infection which we cleared...

    Seeking Advise From Senior Ba Expats

    Only contracts in Spanish are enforceable in Argentina. Since you say the landlord doesn't read Spanish I doubt you'll get him to sign one. I would just keep dancing with the date you brought to the ball.

    Seeking Advise From Senior Ba Expats

    The real estate agent is there (supposedly) to protect the owner, not the tenant. If the owner trusts you to pay then (as most have said here) just keep on dancing. He has much more to lose than you and has offered to run the risk of you not paying and then squatting in his apartment. My...
