    Public transportation in BA is pretty decent, I think. More subway lines would do good (how does one go from Congreso De Tucuman to Virreyes without having to go all the way to the center?). Mexico city has a great subway with kids and lots of lines and stations, but the city is so huge that it...

    That's exactly the point here. I came back home because I found myself missing my hometown for whatever reasons and complaining about everything in Argentina (mostly trivial stuff like the horrible napkins and lack of spicy food). I was always like: in Mexico I can buy whatever I want...

    Dealing with noisy neighbour in an apartment block

    I don't know where you're all from but I am imagining people from your hometowns being mute and your cities being cementeries! I'm now living in Mexico (but planning on moving back to BA) and the noise problem is the same (except people here don't shout in the streets just about in every normal...

    Anyone here left Argentina at one point and actually missed the damn place so much to actually go back? I found myself just missing and wondering what was happening down there, what were my friends doing and I realised I had a better time there than in my hometown. I just asked for my transfer...

    Farewell Buenos Aires

    By 1947 Argentina barely reached 16 million total population. No way there were 15 million immigrants.

    Farewell Buenos Aires

    I agree on the variety and the spicelessness issues. Steak here is good but they just cut it and put it on the parrilla. Not too much preparation (It's good but sometimes I miss how we used to make asados - which aren't an argie exclusive- back home). The pastas are so horribly heavy and the...

    Best of the brunch buffets?

    Go to Malvon. It's amazing and quite cheap. It's in Serrano 879 close to the outlets. You won't be disappointed.

    Nobel Peace Prize awarded to European Union

    And next year's award goes to FIFA, or maybe even CFK. It just seems like a joke to me. The EU, while it brings many countries together, it discriminates others. It also contains a bunch of very military prone countries. Sure it's done a lot for integration and social peace (and we're to see...

    Chavez wins elections, we are screwed!

    To me, this election was just a way to legitimize (¿?) Chávez staying in power. Capriles never had a chance to win. It was all a very orchestrated show. Now he can say: "people from Venezuela Wanted me to stay".

    Looking for the best "fajitas" in BA

    Friday's fajitas aren't as bad. But yeah, mexican foros here either sucks or is sold at incredibly high prices (35 ARS for a Torta at La Adorada = 105 MXN, when in Mexico you can have one for like 20 MXN).

    Get your pots out for the lads!

    These people are really angry. They has to drag their butts all the way to their balconies and bang their pots.

    What is the food you miss most from "home?"

    hot sauce made out of chili powder????? Also, jalapeños here aren't spicy at all. The all taste like pimientos morrones. I miss the typical mexican freshly made sauce. Cilantro is very scarce, and I haven't seen green tomatoes. It's just not the same dude.
