    I have a friend who is currently in the process of buying a car to drive around South America (he originally bought one in the US to ship down here, but his shipping company went bankrupt...long story). He has done loads of research over the past couple of months, and has found out that...

    Buenos Aires to clean up dog poop on city streets

    Ever heard of anyone actually using citizen's arrest in the US? I haven't. I bet the person making the citizen's arrest would get in more trouble than the person doing the crime -- kidnapping, lawsuit for potentially harming the person, etc.

    Did everyone get this email from Ticketek? They are apparently organizing bus rides straight from Retiro to the stadium...
