    Looking For Running Buddies! :-)

    Check out Plaza Holanda over there in Palermo towards the corner of Libertador and Sarmiento. That place is awesome, they have a loop around the lakes and sidewalks running all throughout there along libertador or wherever you want to go. I used to go over there 4-5 times a week when I lived...

    3 Years To Figure Out How To Make Money In Ba ?

    You can start a call center. I had an office in Regus when i lived there and the office next to mine had two Americans running a call center. It's a possiblity and you don't need to know Spanish, just have your phones forwarded to BA. Just a thought.

    Before you decide to sell your furniture in FL, I would do some research in regards to how much it would cost to replace your furniture here in BA.

    How The Ups Handles The Unions

    Just an article I saw about UPS and how they handle the out of control Unionists. If this happened in Argentina they'd shut off the subte, block all bondi routes, block of 9 de Julio, and all pandemonium would ensue...

    Blue Dollar Question

    Hey Arizona Guy, everyone accepts dollars, you just have to negotiate an exchange rate if you're going to utilize them with a taxi. Then I would head on down to Calle Florida to find someone to exchange the rest of your dollars at the blue rate. There are tons of guys out there looking to...

    Aerolineas Argentinas? Visas And Paying In Cash

    With all due respect, the US requires visitors to do the same thing and the process is a million times worse. The reciprocity fee seems like a crybaby tactic, but I guess what's good for the goose is good for the gander.

    Moving To Buenos Aires For Med School

    Correct, so we figured that she could work at a lesser position, such as a nurse or whatnot, but no...you have to have a license for that. In order to get a license you have to go to school for 2 years and she's already gone to school for 12 in addition to her residency. You need a license for...
