    Translation Service in BA

    I think I’m looking for an interpreter, or perhaps just a personal assistant who can speak English and gets paid per job, like a contractor as opposed to a regular employee. Is there like an upwork site for Argentina?

    Translation Service in BA

    Do you know of a good translation service that can do Spanish to English translation assistance, like when I need to call somewhere for example, they can do 2 way calling with me and help to translate?

    Saliva Rapid PCR test in BA

    I got my PCR test (nasal swap) done at La Rural on Sunday, but didn’t get my results back yet. I used their chat on their site, as well as the whatsapp chat, (similar robot chats) to get the results and it says it can’t find any results. Not sure what’s going on. I entered all the info...

    Google FI internet speeds

    Not sure what it is. Sometimes it can be the downtown or city nature of things, which can mess with GPS also. When I was working in highrise buildings in downtown Dallas, sometimes I wouldn't get any internet in some parts of the building. Not sure what this situation is but the building...

    Google FI internet speeds

    I stuck it out the window and after switching on/off airplane mode it did indeed show LTE. Preferred Network Type shouldn’t be set to 5G? I though you set it to 5G and if it can’t find that then it goes to 4G. It says in my phone the 5G setting is recommended. I did set it to 4G however to...

    Google FI internet speeds

    I got the Personal sim. I went to the Personal store on Santa Fe street I think, and they said they don’t sell prepaid sims, and I should go to a Kiosk nearby. Went to a Kiosk store and the gentleman didn’t speak any English but was nice, sold me a sim but said I must go to Personal and...

    Google FI internet speeds

    In some areas I get the LTE, but for some reason around Recoleta indoors I’ve been getting the H or H+. Tried switching off/on airplane mode for 5 seconds, then restarting. This helped when I initially arrived and wasn’t getting any coverage, but it didn’t seem to help for the Recoleta H+ issue.

    Saliva Rapid PCR test in BA

    Are there restrictions, like for who lives in CABA, like a tourist in Airbnb, or other restrictions? In US they had a restriction on the free test if you do it for travel purposes, so I had to pay for it.

    Google FI internet speeds

    Interesting. Yes I see the mention of the H bands in my phone notification area or whatever that's called. I'm using Google Pixel 5 phone. No local sim yet. It seems to have this band you mention: What bands does Pixel 5 support? 4080mAh Network Technology GSM / CDMA / HSPA / EVDO /...

    I've been thinking about it but have been busy and don't know which one is best. Which do you recommend?

    Saliva Rapid PCR test in BA

    Last I checked there was a requirement to do s 2nd PCR test after you arrive in Argentina, between the 3rd and 7th day if I recall. Is that right? If so, do they have the saliva PCR test where you just spit into a vial, no nose or throat swap? That's how I got my PCR test in USA and it seemed...

    Google FI internet speeds

    Diversion Safe/Hidden Cash Containers in BA

    Where can I find for sale a hollowed out book for storing cash and other valuables in BA? Looked for the real hollowed out books, not the generic Walmart kinds that aren’t real books. Or is there a shop where I can take a book and they can custom make it for me? Would like to keep my...

    Heat wave report

    Weather today in BA is decent. Friday and Saturday will get very hot again. One tip is to pour some water on your hair or on your clothes. It’ll keep you cool for a while.

    Power Outages anyone???

    I heard there was a house fire that was responsible for the power outage, and that it’ll come back on slowly. My Airbnb near Recoleta got a power outage for a while and I’ve been roaming outside since so don’t know if it came back on. Had a mini LED lantern with me that provided decent light...
