    Parrilla Takeaway - It Was Great!

    Some Balance Required From Some Forum Users...

    I am new to this forum. I am not new to expat forums or their moans and groans. It is all part of the course. It is also all part of the course to pay a little more than locals when you travel and I have traveled all over the world and spent time in the most godforsaken places due to work. I...

    Where Can I Get Pesos To My Dollar Safely?

    I have brought dollars with me to Argentina. I want to know where I can change my money safely and legally at the blue rate. This strange situation is confusing. The places I have found in Recoleta and Alto Palermo have horrible rates. I only found out that you could do better from reading...
