    The Land of Milk and Honey

    I do love when it rains Oreo cookies. I dont think you can find that anywhere else in the world. The Unicorn is a little possessive of the Oreo cookies so watch out.

    Well put. You will have to do some serious networking/pulling strings but nothing is impossible.

    Protein Supplements

    How common are protein supplements in BsAs? In particular, I am searching for shakes but I am open to any form at this point. I searched for some at my local supermarket and found nothing (unless I failed to translate correctly). What is the brand name or what verbage should I look for on...

    Baseball and American Football??

    I was there watching college football two saturdays ago and they said a bunch of Red Sox fans were going to arrive to watch the Sox game, so yes. I assume they turn on whatever the majority of people there want to see, so it may be difficult to catch MLB on Sunday. You can call first to...

    Baseball and American Football??

    The Alamo Bar is a decent place to catch the games. They usually draw quite a crowd on Sunday though many people leave once their favorite team finishes playing.

    Counterfeit Bills and Magic Mustard on Your Head

    It just seems inevitable that I will run into a situation where I need to take a cab and only have a 100 peso bill on me. If that situation arises, I will demand that the driver turns on the cabin light or moves to a less busy street if traffic is the issue. If he refuses both, I will be...

    Hola BA - New in town!

    I would be up for meeting some Chicagoans as well. I last lived in 'West Wicker Park' at the end of my 4 years on Chicago and just before coming to BsAs. Technically, humboldt park, 1 block west of western but realtors felt that 'West Wicker Park' would draw more attention than listing it as...

    Counterfeit Bills and Magic Mustard on Your Head

    I went to the Subte this morning to purchase a new 10 ride pass and quickly found out that I was trying to spend counterfeit money. I think a cab driver gave me the fake bills. Luckily, I had enough real money to get the 10 trip pass but it was definitely an eye opening experience. I have...

    I am making a solid effort to enjoy all the things BsAs has to offer, but I cant miss this game. Favre returns to Lambeau field wearing Purple. Go Pack! Any suggestions on the best place to watch a Monday Night Football game? I could watch it at my apartment but I need to work on my Spanish a...

    2 Month Stay. Arriving this weekend.

    Hello. My name is Jordan and I am arriving in Buenos Aires this weekend. I will be there to work with some of my team members for two months so I am hoping to get to know more about the city, people and sharpen my Spanish during my stay (which is very weak today). I am currently pursuing an...
