    I have been following the whole Maldonado drama since its beginning. My source of information is La Nación, which is overtly anti-K but interviewed both sides of the story. 1) I do not understand why Maldonado-Mapuche and kirchnerismo fall under the same flag. The land they are claiming have...

    Dishwasher Rack Replacement

    My Bosch dishwasher (brought over when I moved) racks are rusted and are bursting. Bosch does not sell dishwashers in Argentina, but I suppose racks are similar to other brands. I can't seem to find them on Mercadolibre - maybe I am looking for the wrong thing? I am searching using rejillas...

    Hit By The Storm

    Tonight a violent storm hit San Isidro, eradicating the tree in front of our place. It was a green screen that gave us privacy against our neighbors, and a source of entertainment to the cats living in the building. Luckily, nobody and nothing was harmed, but we have to live with curtains on and...

    Tax On Assets Abroad

    I have been consulting with a local accountant to check my fiscal status here.
