    Feliz Día De La Primavera!

    Happy Spring Day everyone. Like most years, it is a rainy day in BA on Spring Day. But it's also Students' Day (kind of a one day Spring Break), where all the students skip school, get drunk, gather in the park, and often break bottles all over the place. It's also a day when men are...

    Cable Car Film Clip From 1906 (A.k.a. "cobblestone Chaos")

    There is a video on Facebook of a street life in San Francisco in 1906*. *four days before the Great California Earthquake of April 18th 1906. OK, so it's not Buenos Aires, but most likely it is not very different. Perhaps SF had a few more cars, but the unlined street is filled with...

    "we're Going To Puerto Madero" The Song... Is Genius!

    Apparently this song was put up on YouTube back in 2010, but I never saw it. This, however is pure awesomeness in an understated... re tranqui kind of way.

    Expat Article Of The Week (Ba Herald)

    Though most people never take a peak at the Buenos Aires Herald, there is a weekly segment that I think is quite pertinent to this board. Sorrel Moseley-Williams writes a weekly article about an expat (or expat couple). I think that this could be a weekly topic of conversation, so I'm starting...

    Why Is Cfk Trying To Move The Christopher Columbus Statue?

    Today I noticed this story on my Saturday edition of La Nacion. Then I saw it on the cover of today's LA Razon. And since both papers are "anti-K", I was interested in finding out the non-partisan and the K reason(s) for moving the statue. As someone who gives tours, I often point out various...

    Ba Herald Article Covering The Falklands/malvinas Refendum

    Either yesterday or today's Buenos Aires Herald has an article by an Anglo-Argentine who went to the islands to cover the referendum. He spoke with Kelpers and Argentine vets alike. It's an interesting read. [/size][/color][/font] http://www.buenosair...a-misconception

    Store Closings: Ralph Lauren, Cartier, Escada, & Zenga

    Not that I shop at any of the stores listed in the "Title", but these stores, Ralph Lauren, Cartier, Escada, & Zenga, have all closed up Argentine operations for the foreseeable future due to the inability of them to get their merchandise into the country. I like to take clients into the Ralph...

    LAN + TAM = "Latam" (Airline Merger)

    I was just looking at the BBC website and they announced that LAN Chile had bought TAM Airlines from BRAZIL in a move that makes "Latam" the second largest airline company in the world. Chile really has their $#!+ together. No word yet on flights from Brazil to the Falklands, but they could...
