    I've been here on a tourist visa for about a year and have several trips back and forth to Colonia stamped on my passport. Have any permatourists done the bus trip from Mendoza to Santiago (Chile) and had problems with the migraciones officials on the border? I know the guys at Buquebus are...

    Just realised I've overstayed

    Crap - I just looked at my passport and realised I'm at 93 days. Very stupid, I know - I thought I had more time. I could try to get a ferry over to Colonia in the next two days, or head down to migraciones (last time I went to Colonia). One time I took the Buque after I had overstayed 2 or 3...

    NRL Grand Final

    Anyone interested in watching the match? I believe the owner of Casabar can get a feed, but only if we can get a group of people interested in watching it. I'm too lazy to figure it out, so can anyone tell me exactly when it's on, BA time?

    Colonia trip on July 3rd

    Anyone else going on that day? I've seen every nook and cranny of Colonia, so my plan is to just get some nice lunch, have a few beers somewhere and watch any interesting World Cup matches that might be on. Would be glad for some company if anyone is keen.

    Any Aussies watching the World Cup?

    I'd be interested in watching the 3 Socceroos games with some other Australians (and I'm not optimistic there will be more than 3!) in a bar in the city somewhere. Are there any Aussies who will be in Buenos Aires during the WC? BTW here is my new football site:

    even higher ATM fees

    So I took out money this morning and was charged 15 pesos for the transaction! I didn't read all of the previous thread about ATM fees, but when I went back to Australia recently, I checked with my bank and they told me that the type of account I have means that I should not be charged...
