    Moving Sale - Electronics, Books, Detergent

    Yes, the camera does still take photos. The problem is that it shakes because the stabilizer is broken, which means sometimes it is difficult to get the camera to focus. You can still take good photos with it, but you have to be patient. You can still take video with it, but since it shakes a...

    Want to live in San Telmo, but what's the new area out there?

    The center of San Telmo is really congested with tourists (but there seem to be more in Palermo). If you really don't want to be near tourists, then don't live near Defensa or Plaza Dorrego. There are fewer tourists in the southern part of the neighborhood past Av. San Juan, and you could live...

    Punta del Este or Montevideo/Colonia?

    Four days is enough time to do both Punta del Diablo and Cabo Polonio. If you're taking public transit though, you'll have to leave BsAs at midnight if you want to get into Punta del Diablo in the afternoon. If you leave in ther morning you won't get there til the evening, which is a whole day...

    suggestions for midweek excursions from BsAs?

    Everyone says Iguazu is "must-see," but that really depends on who you are. It's like going to a theme park rather than being outdoors in nature. So if you don't mind a massive amount of people, then you'll probably love it. You can't go with the expectations to really be outdoors and go on...

    Burritos on the cheap

    Yeah La Fabrica is expensive too. It's a nice place to eat some pork for a change, but their hot sauce isn't so great. Even the hot sauce that's for "Mexicans only" was mild. At least there was some spice though.

    Burritos on the cheap

    CBC is definitely not cheap. The prices are equivalent to the same thing you'd pay in the states. It's like Starbucks here. Way too overpriced for what it is.

    Muu Lechería in Palermo-- a No Recommendation

    I never ate a meal there, but the milkshakes at Muu are great. They're overpriced sure, but I don't know where else to get a milkshake around here.

    Using Craigslist in Buenos Aires

    OLX ( is another good option. I think more Argentinians visit it than craigslist. I listed my computer on baexpats, craigslist, mercadolibre and olx and it ended up selling through olx. The great thing about that was that I didn't have to pay any fees to anyone else, like...

    For Sale: Used Laptop, Camera and Cellphones

    Hey, if you want to send me a private message through BAExpats, then you can send me your email address or I can reply with mine. Unfortunately, I didn't grow up in Oregon, but I moved to Buenos Aires from there and that's where I plan to move back to. Beautiful state. Are you guys from Oregon?

    For Sale: Used Laptop, Camera and Cellphones

    Hey, it's a year and a half old. It still works perfectly so I think it's got plenty of life left in it. I'm really just trying to sell it so I don't have to backpack with it and run the risk of getting it stolen or lost. Otherwise, I'd keep it!
