    How to get money *out* of Argentina?

    The 10,000 limit is per person and not per family? Well that makes things even better! Although we likely won't always be returning together. I definitely agree that it's best to get the money out - but it's not that we have much money sitting around, but rather a humble but helpful income that...

    Translation Rates? Help!

    That REALLY depends on how big the company is and what their budget is, and also how much experience/credentials you have. I have one year of experience and typically charge about 20 Argentine cents per word. That said, I also typically work for small clients who often couldn't afford to pay...

    How to get money *out* of Argentina?

    Thank you all for your responses!! At any rate, we do plan on coming back at least 1-2 times per year, so if wiring is very expensive/risky, we might go for the money pouch route. In general I doubt we will have more than 10k to take out per trip, and I understand up to 10k is legal to leave the...

    Ivan, I will reserve those books for you. When can you come by and get them? I am leaving Argentina on Tuesday so it would be best if you could come before then. Thanks! Juanpablo, are you looking for just the sommier or the mattress and sommier? Thanks.

    Freezers off at night?!

    Honestly I think it just depends on the place. I have been buying milk and other perishables, including lunchmeats, from our local chinese supermarket for 3 years now. Never had any problems with any food from them. In fact, out of the three nearby supermarkets, including one small argentine-run...

    How to get money *out* of Argentina?

    Is there any way to send money FROM Argentina TO the US/Europe? Now I'm asking nicely so please no making fun of me for my ignorance - I know this is probably near impossible/difficult to do. :D But my question is, is someone has investments/income (in pesos) here and wants to send money to...

    interviews with US citizens living in Buenos Aires

    Hi! I've been living here for just about 5 years now (came in June 2007). However, I am planning on leaving next month. If you're still interested in interviewing me, I'd be happy to help. I guess I can no longer consider myself a permanent resident but I do have a lot to say about Bs As. :p

    Buying dollars legally gets even harder now

    It would appear that I chose the wrong time to leave Argentina with my job where I earn dollars...I could've started getting some killer exchange rates...:rolleyes: Not that that would be of any help to me, that with inflation being what it is...

    Do you wear a diamond engagement ring?

    I left all my nice jewelry, any family heirlooms or things I'd really be crushed to lose, in a safe back in the US. My mom even bought me a small little diamond ring for my birthday once - I told her to keep it herself (now we share it - wear it whenever I visit the US :D) My husband and I...

    CFK and ÉL

    Just to put in my two cents here about EL. While it may be repetitive and "annoying" for some, I would like to second what some others have said that it really might be genuine (who are we to know her intimate details). My suegra lost her husband almost 5 years ago and rarely does a week pass...

    Why do people without work visas think they can come here and find work?

    Yeah I do kinda think the answer is that they do because "they can". There's so much work here these days. True, it is usually crappier work than most US/UK/Europe/AUS/etc citizens are wishing/willing to do, but there is really no shortage of work these days, particularly for those who have some...
