Our small tour company, Football De Tours, will be taking a group to Argentinos vs Boca on Sunday the 9th. We take public transport to the ground to cut down on costs for you. Price for this one will be US$85 and that includes your ticket (in the nicer platea section), a tour of the...
An article on the life of Carlos Monzon, who was middleweight world champion for 7 years, dated Susana Gimenez, ended up in prison for killing his second wife, and died in a car crash while on a day's leave from jail.
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...
I just noticed a similar thread has gone up, but my question is more specific. I too have an Australian bank account and use my Debit Card to access funds from ATMs here. My account is a 'Gold' account which is supposed to mean I do not get charged fees for withdrawing money from oversees ATMs...
Not going to bother watching the last day of the 1st Test, but a couple of us were watching Day 4 last night at Casabar on one of their screens (via stream).
We spoke to the owner and he would be prepared to make sure we have a screen to watch the 2nd Test on - he would even give us the whole...
"HAND OF POD" podcast previewing the superclasico tomorrow. Hopefully will give you some insight into the game:
And here's an article on the match:
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...
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?
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.
Argentina end the group phase with 9 points! A tough game against Greece, but another win for Maradona's boys in the end:
This is a website I've been working on for a while. Wouldn't say it's totally finished but I've hurried it up a little to have it online in time for the World Cup. Hope you like it:
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:
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...
