    Quality Argentine Products

    I like Piu Piu bakery, on Instagram. It's this young woman who makes absolutely delicious cakes and cookies. I think you can only order through IG. Lots of options like gluten-free, vegan, and traditional options, too.

    Right Vs Left

    Can someone explain politics here in Argentina? I know people like jeremiahs are super anti-left to the point of almost hatred but I have no idea what the left or right stand for here or who belongs to what group. Is there a basic primer? I know it's different than in the US because in the US...

    Receive money in USD without a local bank account

    There's always a way. You could convert dollars to bitcoin, then bitcoin to dollars in some roundabout way. I buy bitcoin in cash app, sell on localbitcoin, receive in my girlfriend's MercadoPago, then call a contact to buy at dólar Blue if I feel like saving dollars. I get about 1:121 lately on...

    Car Honking

    There's a feriado every week and a protest every night. I don't even ask anymore. Just put on some noise-cancelling headphones and drown it out.

    Arrest record during immigration?

    Your question is incendiary and I decline to answer. I can see your intentions despite the docile words.

    Arrest record during immigration?

    Okay, okay, now I understand. You have a pride problem. You're in your mid-thirties? Life will take that out of you, I hope. People don't view you as you want them to view you with that pride problem, man. They view you as hostile, unapproachable, and not likable. I don't think you're more...

    Arrest record during immigration?

    If you live in Palm Beach, I'd love to take you out for a cigar and a good scotch (Lagavulin 16) next time I'm in Orlando and describe to you my life as a black man in the US. I believe in resolving differences over conversation (and cigars). I'll drive down and we can meet at whatever joint you...

    Arrest record during immigration?

    I We abolished slavery how many years after independence? Did you know it wasn't legal for me to be alive until 20 years after my birth? Literally. To everyone else who is arguing about plea deals. 97% of Federal convictions are obtained with a plea bargain. I pled to resisting arrest without...

    Arrest record during immigration?

    Thanks for the info. I'm not going to get murdered by the police here. That's all I can say for racism in the US vs Argentina.

    Arrest record during immigration?

    I'm touchy because for every year of my life in the US, I have had to listen to people like you who are ignorant to reality (in the true sense of the word, not the derogatory sense). You haven't lived a day as a person of color and you have no idea what you're talking about. It happens every...

    Arrest record during immigration?

    Nope, literally the whole story. Cut and dry, super simple. Exactly as stated. Racism in the US leads to wrongful arrest of black man and cops covering their tracks. Happens 20 times a day.

    Arrest record during immigration?

    I'm not here to adjust your world view, but it is extremely common for innocent black men to go to jail. We do worse than whites at trial, and my attorney arranged a plea deal. It is extremely common for innocent black men who do not want to go to jail to take a plea deal. I'm not here to...

    Are Argentina Girls Really That Bad?

    Every person is different. Every woman is different. I've been to more than a dozen countries. I've never been able to stereotype an entire country full of people with a few words. My personal experience with Argentinas has been that they are loyal, kind, and affectionate. Of course, if you're...

    Arrest record during immigration?

    I'm in the process of applying for permanent residence via a convivencia. I was stopped during a traffic stop and was accused of a felony and three misdemeanors. I was completely innocent. I pled no contest to a misdemeanor to avoid jail and my case was "adjudication withheld". Very common...

    BA Real Estate market to take a dive before the end of the year.

    I was thinking of buying some property in Rafael Calzada (I'm familiar with the zone and understand the dangers involved) and turning it into private rooms. I have the requisite security requirements. Besides the obvious dangers, any feedback on profitability?

    AFIP, BitCoin, and MercadoPago?

    PagoFacil is the only store that has WU and is open, to my knowledge. PagoFacil has a DNI schedule. If your DNI ends in 0 or 1, you can go Mondays only. 2 or 3, Tuesdays. 4 or 5, Wednesdays. 6 or 7, Thursdays, 8 or 9, Fridays. This week, because of Día del Trabajador, everything was closed. They...

    AFIP, BitCoin, and MercadoPago?

    I've been asked for my passport and they've checked the number every time. I got denied when I tried to go Wednesday.

    AFIP, BitCoin, and MercadoPago?

    They changed the DNI schedule this week. My passport ends in 8/9 so I'd have to wait until Friday to take out money at a reasonable rate.
