    MercadoLibre identity validation

    The instructions say "have your DNI handy" and then "don't wear glasses or a mask." So which do they want for identity validation? an old DNI photo or one taken online? I've tried dozens of times with both options and neither one works. I'd like to know the national regulation that requires...

    MercadoLibre identity validation

    Thanks for your suggestions. I have a Fujitsu notebook that is ten years old and an ENACOM tablet (free from the city), but facial recognition didn't work on either one after many attempts. I even tried the facial recognition wearing a black wig. No luck. Everybody changes after ten years. I...

    MercadoLibre identity validation

    I ran into a problem a few months ago when I tried to buy a quantity of tango LPs for a friend. MercadoLibre would not allow the purchase after years of using my account. They wanted me to prove my identity by using the computer camera to take a photo. No matter what I did, it didn't work...

    The way money amounts are written is baffling me....

    They reverse the placement of the comma and the period. It takes getting use to. Just like Celsius instead of farenheit, and telling time in 24 hours instead of am and pm. We adjust. Change is normal. What's strange is using a dollar sign for amounts is pesos!

    I live near "furniture row" in Balvanera -- from Av. Jujuy to Av. Entre Rios on both sides of Av. Belgrano. There are furniture stores selling tables like the one you show in your post.

    Trying to find a Sube card? Impossible...

    I still use my first SUBE card that was issued to me on January 31, 2012, which is always in a plastic cover. Last year I found a card on the street and keep it for backup. The nearby place for lottery tickets sells cards for $126, but then this isn't a ritzy neighborhood.

    Poverty in the USA

    I'd rather be in BA than the US for many reasons. I came here for the tango when the dollar and the peso were equal. We don't know when but it's possible that in a few years the dollar will no longer be the global currency. That will change everything. As the song lyric goes "the rich get...

    Poverty in the USA

    That's why I share why retirement is great in Buenos Aires. I can live comfortably and not worry about how I'm going to pay the bills.

    Poverty in the USA

    I enjoyed the video and can relate to her situation. I feel the same as she does -- I'm glad that I'm here in BUENOS AIRES. I couldn't afford the rent she pays in Arizona. There are many retired Americans living in Buenos Aires. We can live well here while the dollar is still the global...

    Home internet service, no DNI

    In 2002, when I rented my apartment, I provided my passport when I signed up for phone and internet service. A few months ago I had to change my passport number on my Telefonica/Movistar account to my DNI. The DNI of a woman living in Parana, Entre Rios is identical to my passport. I had to...
