    Thanks guys for the heads up and I will be sure to check out La Rural. Also, when I get there, I'd like to start a small gathering of geeks, and wannabes, who are interested in sharing ideas about what I like to call 3-G technologies (gadgets, gear, and girls). Everyone will be invited of...

    Trade Shows & Expos

    Are there any expos or trade shows in the city (like computer, tech, consumer electronics expos, adult entertainment, etc... what? I'm just asking...), and if so, what are they and when? Also, if you attended any, what were your experiences? Personally, I love attending trade shows because...

    Avoid Becoming a Victim of Crime

    Finally I found a good and secure bag (relatively speaking). I remember seeing this product awhile back, but I couldn't remember the name of it until now. For a secure bag/purse, I think the concept is good and it seems to be very functional, but I'm not sure if you will like the limited...

    Argentines loves running red lights

    Count your blessings that Argentinians drive on the right side of the road. Driving in Bangkok is far worse than in Buenos Aires, where the drivers are just as bad, if not worse than the Argentinians. What is worse is that most of Asia drives on the wrong side of the road which makes for a...

    Working en negro

    Volunteer work is a great idea to help the day go by. Plus, anyone who has ever volunteered in non-profit organization has benefited in the long run because of the networking. If you are a good worker and a nice person, NPOs will be offering you opportunities for paid work, and in Argentina...

    sending text (SMS) messages to/from US/Europe

    Check your plan to see if it allows incoming/outgoing international SMS. I have T-mobile in Hawaii and my gf has MoviStar. We text each other all the time, but the only problem is that every once in awhile, we don't receive our messages for up to 12 hours. This problem usually occurs on the...

    Avoid Becoming a Victim of Crime

    Back in the last week of April 2008, I witnessed a mugging of two well-dressed elder Argentine gentlemen at 13:00hrs, on a Saturday, on the corner of Esmeralda y Arenales in Retiro. The two muggers on foot that accosted these two well-dressed residents of Retiro were in their 30s, husky in...

    Want peanut butter? Come and get it!

    Back in May, I purchased a jar of PB, manteca de mani que fue hecho en Argentina, at a supermarket in Chinatown and I swear that it was half the price of all the imports. I wasn't really paying attention to the cost, but I know it was cheaper and I don't remember where the supermarket was...

    Guia "T" or GPS

    As you recommended, I downloaded MAPEAR v6.01 and loaded it onto my Garmin Nuvi 760. This is a bodacious alternative to paying USD 189 + IVA (21%) for the Garmin 3rd Party software "Mapas INAV para GPS cartografía de Geosistemas". I'm sure the Geosistema maps are more like the Garmin maps with...

    Guia "T" or GPS

    Hi Mike. I'll be moving there soon and was planning on purchasing a Garmin Nuvi before I left. Did you purchase the Argentine maps for it and if so, how much was it and how is it working for you? I have the city map book that my GF and I use when we are driving around the city, but this can...

    Where is the Homeboy Shopping Network in the city? Every big city has at least one and I would appreciate it greatly if you can let me know, if you know. Here in Honolulu, we call it the "Flea Market". It's not your ordinary flea market. It has the goods, new and used, and sometimes at...
