    Selling Property

    We had support of escribana, family friend. Without is possible, but you are in constant doubt if all is OK. Especially if you are handling things with incompetent buyer/agent, which is usual here. If you decide for agent, get really food one. I was dealing with some and all were less...

    Customs At Eze Getting Tough

    There has to be some change, since my girlfriend was for first time asked some questions about what she is transporting. Now it was one old monitor, but they checked it. Never happened to us before, so maybe it's good to consider this for the future.

    Apartment Expenses For Worn Out Blind

    Strange talk here. How can you expect something the same after 3 years of use? What's the point to rent furnished apart, if you have to buy everything new again after you leave? Of course, if it's destroyed by improper use is different, but this has to be proven by landlord. I heard quite a...

    Euros To Dollars?....possible?

    Last time I was checking, they enabled official change between usd and euros. Also bcra is reporting daily exchange rates. I never tried, but they explicitly stated this on their website. I'm not sure how much you lose or gain, but is worth to check. Foreigner can maybe do this without hassle...

    B.a.street Rage '16.

    Pedestrians involve, where isn't much danger of a gun. I involved myself in my country, where guns are almost nonexistent, and people who own them know, where to use them. Last time I witnessed motochorros in action I aptly hide myself behind the parked truck and watched some poor bastards...

    Robbed In Epuyen, Theives Caught Then Released, Even Though

    All the justice system in Argentina is a joke. Molesting law abiding citizens yes, but never big criminals. And if yes, they have a right to communicate from the cell!! Can you imagine that? He can influence and threat from a cell, it's surreal...

    Getting Us Dollars Out Of Ar

    Things are changing every month now and for a bit better. Problem is, that no one gives you final answer, so you never know if and how exactly you have to do it, to be 100% successful. At least this part to change in pesos I think is out, but might be hard for foreigners. To get money in for...

    Drinking Tap Water

    Friend from aysa explained me, that if all is in regulation and water comes from river, there isn't a problem. But in smaller cities in provincia the water has arsenic inside (it's in the soil, not artificial) and due to the farming also other contaminants. There are reports of higher cancer...

    Drinking Tap Water

    I'm drinking only bottled water, because of the taste, but more importantly because I see how they are handling water in the building. Although it's new building, access to the tanks and pumps is unrestricted, anyone can open it and sometimes it is open... Otherwise the water is good, I just...

    Lazaro Baez Arrested, Perez Gadin Arrested... Who's Next ?

    Dólars were so heavy he had to leave some on the airport. You can't really expect that after that they will bother him with technicalities...

    Getting Us Dollars Out Of Ar

    I know about official way, others could tell about alternatives. Are you Argentine? Do you have bank account here (also caja ahorro dolares)? Are you the only owner? If all this yes, then you can put dollars directly on dolar account, go to central office of your bank with escritura and send...

    New Electric Bill Arrived: And The Total Is....

    I never understood this discrimination of interior. You are obviously using electricity in similar way as me, and I pay 100 pesos, you 28x more. And not many people seem to see that weird here...

    Macri's Amnesia

    If you want president of Argentina without money and investments outside, you have to get someone poor in the power. All the rest already have them. Problem is, that later also the new guy will have them. It's like world works... What has to be disclosed is if all taxes were paid and if money...

    New Electric Bill Arrived: And The Total Is....

    The rise has everything to do with savings and investments in infrastructure. I can't seriously expect to have good service for 22p per month?! Maybe they just want to rob additional money, but for this case there are other instances that should intervene. I know your bill is higher, but for...

    First It Was Easy Taxi, Now Uber Doa?!

    I don't see the problem in the case of easy taxi, payments doesn't go through them, they aren't contracting no one. This should be allowed.

    First It Was Easy Taxi, Now Uber Doa?!

    In this case uber goes above state and the fee they are charging is actually a tax. Calling it a fee doesn't change nothing. They are also not very original, which could justify a bit their high charges. In Europe websites and apps for car sharing existed for decade, most of them were for...

    First It Was Easy Taxi, Now Uber Doa?!

    It's funny, how no one mentions the tax of 20% which uber is taking for every transfer. Theoretically one app will earn 20% of world transfer revenue without any investment, any trouble, nothing. And all goes to USA. I will never use such app, as I also try to avoid booking websites...

    New Electric Bill Arrived: And The Total Is....

    In my country people were sharing consumption for heating and water, and they were paying a lot. After the law to separate all came out, consumption fall by at least 25% of everything. For all country change was significant and some expansions of infrastructure was even cancelled. The same...

    New Electric Bill Arrived: And The Total Is....

    Look bajo, many things here are quite expensive, but energy and transportation are ridiculously cheap. I know you are paying quite a lot, but for 250kwh per month I paid 22 pesos before, now is 50! This is a joke and president doesn't have to be bribed to realize, that the price should go up...
