    ATM - No cash dispensed but charged anyway

    if you are a tourist ( like me) and you need to leave before you sort that out, then you let your own bank to sort it out. They have a responsibility to do that when you do a reclamation.

    Hairdresser that speaks English?

    Nice that you found him. In general I would say that he is way better than these local factories. But last time I was not totally pleased. I feel my hair is now too blond (again) and not really cut to any model. But hey, I'm going back home next week and to my own hairdresser, so I do not need...

    Sounds weird but: some Tampax available

    Hi there, weird topic to discuss in internet but it has been taken up here before. It is impossible to find Tampax in this city, or at least that is my experience. Anyway, I'm flying back home in the end of the month. And I have 1,5 pack of Tampax Super that I do not need. Is there anyone who...

    Bras: big cup sizes

    Having visiting about 40 shops looking for E-cup I would agree with previous ones, bring bras for all of your stay!!!!! They must sell them somewhere but so far I have not located those shops. When you ask "do you have big sizes" they say that sure, it really means D-cup at max, nothing bigger...

    Common Attire

    I live in Palermo and work in Micro centro and walk around the city everywhere and my opinion is that people wear here practically anything and everything. In our office (high tech company) you can see people in suits (men) and dresses (women) but also in jeans and t-shirts + flip flops. Same...

    Salta Information

    I would suggest you just buy tickets to Salta and reserve first night at the hotel. Then once you are there you can find plenty of agencies that make day tours to Jujuy mountains or even if you want couple of days tours. If you do not like crowds there are also some private guides / drivers who...

    A Challenge for you

    I'm pretty sure that if you can't swim that far the cheapest option will be a freight vessel. But I do not know if there is anyone leaving exactly on that date. You could check Buenos Aires Herald for vessel schedules and then call those companies. Sorry, I'm not at the moment up to challenge...

    Tandoor Indian restaurant: disappointing

    I do not even remember the prices there but I was also very dissappointed with the food, the only time I visited the place in December. Never again! If anyone knows really good Indian place in BsAs please let me know too.

    Practising spanish

    RWS: if I wanted to hire a tutor where I could find one? Any idea what kind of price they charge per hour? I really want to learn to talk but I feel a bit shamed to just go and meet a local since at this moment I feel I would not be able to say much. The words are still hiding somewhere in my...

    Practising spanish

    Can you advice where to find someone to practise spanish with? I know there has been some advice here before but could not figure out search words to find them. I have studied spanish a little very long ago. Now I have spent here already over 3 months but have to admit that have not been really...

    Sorry for not posting this experience earlier. I did go to Cerini and again my experince was horrible. The girl who was assigned to color my hair did not speak one word of english. They found one girl there who did and with her we discussed how I want to have similar color as my previous one...

    Hairdresser that speaks English?

    I'm now booked to Cerini for this afternoon. If that is again bad experience I will try out either Claudia or Ryan. Keep your thumbs up so that this time it works out. First time was so bad that I almost burst out crying right there at salon. I will report my experience here later.

    Hairdresser that speaks English?

    Thank you all for replies. I think I first check out that Cerini. I probably feel more comfortable in salon than someones home, canadian or not ;o) I will not go anywhere near any of Giordano shops, there I had (in paseo Alcorta) the worst experience ever. I was ashamed to walk out of there...

    Hairdresser that speaks English?

    Does anyone know any (good) hairdresser that would speak English? I have had couple of really bad experiences with hairdressers here and next time I would like to make sure that if it happens again the reason is not the language. It would be so nice to be able to really explain what I want...

    Hey, I am moving down in 2 months and have some questions

    About places to live, I'm sure there are more "autenthic" places in this city to live than Palermo or Recoleta but I would like to point out that these are not tourist places. I think in my building I'm the only foreigner. At least so far I have not seen / hear anyone who would look like tourist...

    Botox and eyebrow tinting

    Hi Jacko, now I can get more only in February. My husband is coming here but too late to ask him to shop that. Which brand it was that they sold there? If it was something that is sold in my country I can ask someone to go and check the instructions. Difficult in this country, the eyebrows I...
