    Forgot to also mention that over here unlike BA people are very lax with their business hours. Alot of places close at 1pm to 5pm because everyone is on the beach.

    danger in Recoleta/Barrio Norte

    Just to add my two cents on crime...and rape in particular. Now I'm not living in Buenos Aires but I plan to move there early next year.

    Futbal confusion
