    Would you like to spend the rest of your life in Argentina?

    I've noticed to a large extent competition in the retail trade doesn't exist here. That's why where I live there are about 10 times more shops per head of population than in a similar sized town in the UK.

    Would you like to spend the rest of your life in Argentina?

    Must agree. Despite me being very easily pleased I wouldn't be here if I had to give the rate of the dollar blue one second of my time.

    Would you like to spend the rest of your life in Argentina?

    Perhaps I should have asked "Where would you like to spend the rest of your life?'' Must admit and I'm probably wrong....most Argentina expats do seem to be dollar earners and only here for the cheap ride.

    It’s official Joe Biden becomes the 46 President of the United States.

    I thought old Trumpy was rather a hoot....I enjoyed him taking the piss out of the 'system'. Now it's the turn of one of the oh so predictable old boys who let's face it is only there because he was owed favours. All a bit worrying that the US can't come up with better Presidents nowadays..

    Probably but you have to blame something for Argentinas woes.

    Changing Argentina’s Inertia: Is it Possible?

    Always said the problem with Argentina is its Spanish and Italian background plus it's location in the world map doesn't help. There's no EU here to take them by the hand and guide them into the 21st century.

    Part time living here is a cakewalk....especially when drinking Malbec regularly!!

    Would you like to spend the rest of your life in Argentina?

    Kids are easier to please than us adults so I'm sure it'll be an adventure for them. Must admit I found it to be an adventure as well for many years. My problem is I haven't been able to get away for several years and I'm getting a bit fed up with it. Then this flippin' virus came along.

    Argentina stuck in the 1960's?

    The wife is always saying I should eat more. I must admit I do like a beer during the hot weather and wine with my meal...rarely drink sugary fizzy drinks though. I'm fortunate that I've stayed the same weight, give or take a few lbs, for the last 40 odd years. Genes maybe?

    Then there are those who just eat and drink too much while sitting on their arse all day! :-)

    Would you like to spend the rest of your life in Argentina?

    I suppose much depends on your personal circumstances. When there's more than just you involved it's a much harder decision to make.
