    Hello. I am a freelance editor/motion graphics designer. I have, at long last, come to find some job offers, but am unsure of what is a fair rate to charge.

    Renters visa vs. Tourists visa

    I've been going through these forums for about a week now, and haven't been able to find something addressing this issue outright. Apologies if this is redundant... I am moving to Buenos Aires in the upcoming months. I have never been there, but have some friends there, and feel sufficiently...
