    Names of the funniest places that you have been to...

    So far mine has been a classic.... Moron... That´s right folks, MORON!!! There´s even a university named after it too. Poor grads from that uni if they happened to be living abroad especially in an English speaking country. I can see it now... So... Which university did you graduate...

    Expats Trekking/climbing/outdoors group...

    Is there such a thing here at all, or are everyone just the typical out of shape city dwellers, whiners, and partiers type? I just wanted to do the same things that I used to do back in California, Oregon, Colorado, Washington, Alaska New Hampshire, upstate NY, etc., but with fellow English...

    Hurricane Ike

    I think the focus is now on the aftermath of Ike and how some parts of Texas & Louisiana has been declared a major disaster area. This is the SAME area where around 3 million people have been without water & power, not to mention the gas prices jumping up as high as $5.50 in the US. Nobody...

    Climbing Aconcuagua

    Just wondering if anyone plans on setting up or joining an expedition to the summit using the normal route? Climbing season is starting in a few months and I'm planning on doing it (either leading or following and guides will be optional) sometimes this year or the next, depending on the size...

    Wow talk about honesty....

    I've lost my zippo lighter at a parillada near the costenera in Colon, Entre Rios last week. Went back to get it the next day to see if it was there and one of the guys working there told me to come back later on, but it was too late. It was the time that we had to drive back to Buenos Aires...

    Farmer's Strike resumes and this time it will get worse..

    In case any of you guys have been sleeping, stores in Balcarce are closed in support of the farmers. I don't know how soon it will be before stores in Capital Federal follows that trend. My word of advice is to stock up on EVERYTHING that you'll need. I'm also hearing words that something VERY...

    Guia "T" or GPS

    Is anyone familiar with it? I've been using it for quite a while now and it is a godsend if you're relying on colectivos to get from one place to another (beats the taxis and remis in terms of savings, $1-2 ARS a pop for a colectivo vs. $8 ARS or more, depending on where you have to get to)...
