It is one of the most beautiful metropolitan areas I have every been, even though it rained pretty much daily. Traffic wasn't too bad and learned the subways but preferred taxi...

    Drinking Tap Water

    My friend who arrived there a few days ago says he is drinking water from the tap. We are renting an apartment in Recoleta, maybe that makes a difference? I don't mind buying bottled water but curious as to what the majority drink there, besides alcohol :)

    I hope the police follow the trail and get those robbers! I am expat living here in Mexico with a planned trip to visit there in April. In comparison, when we are robbed here the police report is too grueling spend hours giving information while they do nothing to investigate perpetrators...

    Thanks for your post. I tried to find it on Googlemaps but no luck. It's not a problem for me to wait until I get down there to ask some locals where a safe place to go with music and tango dancing but just thought if anyone has a favorite spot. I'm not a late nighter so an 8:00 start would be...
