    Question about purchasing spices or bringing them in.

    dehydrated garlic in minced and flake form seems super common, i see those everywhere. it's just the powder form that seems less common. in any case, NAVE has it so i have a source there :)

    Question about purchasing spices or bringing them in.

    more exotic things are sometimes difficult, most argentines don't use a lot of spices and flavors. garlic and onion powder i found challenging before but eventually with some searching i found it. NAVE is a great source but things are out of stock sometimes https://naveespeciario.com/

    State Welfare Programs/Planes, that Keep Us Safe ?

    perhaps, but that is only a symptom/effect of the real underlying problem(s) that never get solved. only covered up by more Planes! there is a place for some state support, but this is way out of control.

    Legal/logistical things besides visa/residency to prepare before moving from USA?

    i would not deactivate your US credit cards, thye may be useful to have in an emergency. unless of course you won't have accounts or money in the US to pay the bills, then there would be no point to keeping them. Google Fi used to be a good option for international living, but they cracked...
