    Infant visa overstay?

    I have a question on a tourist visa overstay (by a few weeks), for a baby. What might happen/ what are my options to avoid? Colonia visa run, paying the fine at the airport (or a gov. office in advance)? The parents won't have an overstay. Thanks!

    Moving In Sept! Any Advice?

    El Niño - you aren't too far off, assuming you're not living in a posh neighborhood. Buenos Aires living expenses are incredibly low compared to North America (esp. rent). Monthly expenses: Groceries = AR$500/week (for vegetarians); so 250/person Dining out = AR$100 (neighborhood place) to...

    Going To Chinatown Tomorrow - What Should I Buy???

    Tofu - there's a place that makes their own - Defu (Arribeños 2233)... the marinated tofu and fried ones are great & it's super cheap. There's also fresh noodles. Also, Asian veggies (anywhere), and legumes (Casa China). Avoid the bubble tea - the tapioca pearls are like mushed peas

    Buying A Bike?

    I second mercado libre - just make sure you can check out the bike first. In May or June, I'll be selling my trusty bike before moving

    Maple Syrup

    Unfortunately import restrictions apply to maple syrup... making it crucial to have friends/fam. pack bottles in lots of bubble wrap when they visit.
