    6,7,8 (Televisión Pública)

    Over the past few months I've become a regular viewer of this program. It is not that I support its 'línea editorial': I am very critical of the Kirchner government and do think that 'El Modelo Nacional y Popular' está condenado al fracaso. Also, some of the guests they invite seem to be stuck...

    (vegetable) Endive - Do they sell it at verdulerias (at the moment)?

    I want to prepare a typical Dutch meal, and I'm after Endive (Escarole, or broad-leaved endive (var latifolia)). When I asked some locals they looked at me like I was crazy, but I'm sure there is a correct spanish term for the vegetable. And more importantly: do they sell it at verdulerias?

    Washington DC

    In August I'll fly from Amsterdam to Buenos Aires once again, but I'll have a long wait in DC (8+ hours), so I thought about visiting the city for a few hours.

    Panamericano Hotel Bar (and its view)

    I remember reading (a few years ago) that one could enter the Bar of the Panamericano Hotel (located @ Carlos Pellegrini near the Obelisk) without being an actual guest of the Hotel. I'd love to go up there, have a drink and take some snapshots... In Caracas its quite normal that one can enter...

    I know January and February are slow months (and it seems all the national channels have moved their studios to the beaches of La Felíz or Punta), but is there anyone who can recommend me some interesting TV shows?

    Todo Noticias and their website

    TN refurbished their website (www.tn.com.ar) a few months ago, and since then I haven't been able to watch my fav. shows on demand. Have they simply stopped archiving them on their site or have I overlooked a link on the website?

    In What Neighbourhood do YOU Live?

    I kind of wonder in what neighbourhoods the expat community lives in. Everybody keeps telling me that they're almost all living in Palermo and Recoleta, but i find that kind of hard to believe (it would explain the complaining about high prices though). Let's not use fancy names such as Barrio...
