No. Have I had encounters with these people and live around them...yes. I don't want to generalise here but unlike most people in this forum I don't live in or even...

    Expats not happy, why stay?

    I think most of what you said is bang on. But like most of the people here (myself included) we have the luxury of coming from a 1st world country with job training and education. Just see the face of an Argentine when the have lived abroad and return to Argentina. The grass is always greener...

    Expats not happy, why stay?

    Spending my time between Italy and Canada....nothing in Argentina suprises me. I actually laugh, because the things here to me are so typical. I totally agree with the love it or leave it attitude but lets be honest...things that happen here...are jokes. My girlfriend (who is argentina) and her...

    using ATM cards

    I took out 600 pesos yesterday from Banco Industrial using my chequing account from Td Canada Trust (one of the five national banks in Canada). No problem at all. I don't think the bank in Argentina matters it most likely has to do with you bank in your home country as I have had no...

    Argentine Directness

    There is a show in Canada called El Gordo y La Flaca. It is literally though a fat person and a hot girl. ha! Pretty much it is the same in Italy. Any racial term goes...and no one cares. But good luck finding it pleasant to live if u look foreign or are ugly. Its quite...sad actually...

    Hey Guys! Very usefull information here! I actually called Delta personally and spoke with them and they told me all they care is that you have a return ticket. While Argentina or surrounding areas it is none of their concern what I (or anyone else) does. Just need to prove that I am coming...

    Expat Life in Argentina during the coming Depression

    I am an Italian citizen and on one hand you have immigrants (Romanian, Albanian...etc..) coming to Italy with only half willing to work. The others want to sell stolen goods on the streets and have hope and dreams of marrying an Italian. You are right though...low birth rate, aging...
