    If you like boxer shorts that are not tight,look for " tela camisera " fabric. They are more expensive. Kevingston used to carry the non stretchy tight ones.

    Airline ticket prices

    A bonus when lawyer does a good job ?

    A lawyer, a doctor, an accountant, these are all professionals and it is unethical for them to accept or request tips, based on their code of honor. I strongly suggest not doing it. If they do a very good job, you can make him a nice gift, but tipping is a big no imho.

That way you then get dollars at the WU rate and it should save you 25% on the total. Paying with a foreign card is not good as it is charged at the official rate in dollars. There...

    How good of a private school is Lincoln?

    I don't know about these schools you mention. I can only tell you that Lincoln in Belgrano is not related to Lincoln La Lucila in any way. The one in La Lucila follows the US school calendar and curriculum, most children that attend have parents working for embassies, etc.

    Obra social vs prepaga

    Some of monotributo components are optional, that is why I used the term eligible. In certain situations, such as when a person has a registered job, but enrolls as monotributista to be able to run a different activity and invoice. Also, when you are formally retired, you can still work under...
