    For Coronavirus junkies

    Yes, but this one (made two days ago) is even better: Watch it (and download it if you can) before it´s deleted, too... This interview was posted yesterday: At about the 7:40 mark he mentiions that YouTube is now using AI to review videos and some will be deleted even though they may not...

    Visas to stay longer?

    Unless something has recently changed, I don't see how spending just under six months of the year in Argentina would constitute abuse of the tourist visa, no matter how many years you have done so. What is unclear is if two years of uninterrupted physical presence in Argentina is now required...

    Paying bills?

    Many people may indeed have the money to pay their rent, but if those funds are in a bank account and the landlord only acepts cash (which is most often the case), it will be impossible to pay until the banks reopen for business to customers below the age of 65. Assuming the lowest rents...

    Fernández will extend the quarantine another two weeks?

    When you used the expression "their tourists" did you mean Argentine citizens who are tourists in other countires? I can´t imagine they would do anything like that for them at this point. And they certainly aren´t going to do anything for a citizen of another country who happens to have...

    Apocalytic scenes in Argentinian banks

    Did someoine in the government just say, "Release the hounds?" ...or was it the hoards? Either way, the effect will be the same.

    Apocalytic scenes in Argentinian banks

    If the "virus" is as easily spread from person to person as the "experts" say, I won´t be at all surprised if there is a huge spike in the number of infections of the elderly in about two weeks.

    Apocalytic scenes in Argentinian banks

    A good reason to buy only fruits and veggies that have to be peeled before eating: bananas, oranges, carrots, potatoes, beets, onions, etc.(even then, after disinfecting in a diluted bleach or biopure solution), while avoiding lettuce, spinach, kale, celery, etc. (which, at this time, I would...

    Western Union money transfer

    I just checked my Argentine bank account online. My CBU has 22 digits without the dash. Anyone who can access their bank account online should be able to confirm thier CBU (and perhaps copy and paste it where desired in an online form).

    Western Union money transfer

    I haven´t made a cash withdrawal at the bank or used an ATM to withdraw money out of my local bank account in years. I pay for almost everything (including purchases at the local shops in the nearby village) with my Aergentine credit card. When I need cash I get it at the Cooperativa Obrera...
