    How do I deal with a crazy landlord?

    My girlfriend and I are moving out from an apt. on the 30th, but we're worried we aren't going to get our deposit back from our crazy landlords. We have done nothing wrong and the place is spotless. It's much much cleaner than the shape it was when when we rented it, so there really isn't a...

    Soccer jerseys?

    Anyone know where I can find replicas of soccer jerseys? Would actually prefer to get a cheaper t-shirt version that just looks similar to the real thing. Will probably go look in Once, but if anyone has any other ideas I'd love to hear them! Thanks!

    I'd like to buy some very affordable (but not too tacky) sunglasses since I predict I'll probably either lose or break them within the next 6 months. Any suggestions on a place to buy some? Thanks.

    Flying to Montevideo

    I'm going to Punta del Este soon for 4-5 days. The most time efficient way (45 min. flight vs. ) to go is to fly into Montevideo and then take a bus to Punta (it's only $115 USD to fly to Montevideo but flying into Punta costs an extra $100 USD). I'm wondering though if that's worth it or if I...

    Nearly Pickpocketed on the Bus

    Although I'm sure that all big cities have a fair amount of pickpockets, tonight was the first time I've encountered any. So I wanted to just recount the story in order let expats know about at least one scenario to be aware of. I was riding a very crowded 55 colectivo from Palermo to Parque...

    Yeast won't rise

    I've tried to bake bread, pastries, and pizza dough from scratch 3 times now, but the dough won't rise. When I test the yeast it doesn't really appear to be active, but I have just given it a shot anyway. I've tried 2 different brands of yeast. I've tried using bottled water. Nothing seems...

    How to get USD for rent without fees?

    Hey, I just put down $1000 pesos to reserve a great apartment for Jan 1st. The realtor gave me a break in the price since I am willing/able to pay for 6 months up front. But she's asked me to pay within the next week or so. I've been trying to figure out how to get about $5,000 USD quickly...

    Milk sold in bags?

    Anyone know how you're supposed to use the bags of milk sold in stores? They seem cheaper than the boxes, but I keep buying boxes since I'm unsure of how to keep a bag of milk. Someone told me I could buy a special container that holds the bag? I haven't seen anywhere to do that. It also...
