    Any expat event this weekend?

    No replies = no events? I might be going horseback riding tomorrow (Monday) in Parque Pereyra Iraola. That is only 30 minutes from the Microcentro and a nice escape for a day. If someone wants to join, send me a PM and I will check, if I can arrange something.

    A few people go horseback riding in Parque Pereyra Iraola - which is a nice outdoor activity close to BA. This is a "light" outdoor activity which does require much travel or time.

    Waiting in line at the supermarket

    Why orde online? There is always someone willing to take orders on the phone and deliver to your home immediately. Works not only well with large retailers (jumbo, carrefour etc.) but also with fresh fruit & vegies markets like the one in San Telmo.

    Oh yeah, I had a great experience at Jumbo where all lines were busy and the 10-item line completely free. I had maybe 15 items but the lady prefered staring at customers rather than helping out her colleagues .... must be a specifical benefit for the employees to be assigned to the 10-items &...

    Any body experience with or interest in a tour on the Southern Patagonian Icefield? For example "la vuelta", i.e. the trek around Fitz Roy and Cerro Torre? I have not done it yet but it looks like a pretty nice glaciar tour.

    Richard: do you mean the wall at Peru Beach? I think they have an equimpent rental. 30 meters is pretty short, isn't it? Santi

    Richard, do you mean the one at Peru Beach? I have not checked it out but it looks good. They seem to have an equipment rental but I don't know about the quality.
