    Thoughts on working remotely in BA with the time difference?

    The cons of living in Bariloche

    I spent 2020 in Bariloche. Well, about 6 months there, and 6 months 20 min away in Dina Huapi. There is a fiber optic line in town, but I had trouble tracking down an apartment or house that had it (renting). I believe I was able to get 12 mbps, though the slow latency to the United States...

My girlfriend and I comply with the quarantine, only going into public to go to the grocery store and pharmacy, which we do as infrequently as possible. We are still exposed, but it will take a longer amount of...

    Testing has to be a priority if the government (any of them) is going to make good decisions. Then there needs to be a plan to reopen the economy slowly, keeping severe cases under the number of ICU beds/ventilators. My point is, lifting the shelter in place too soon or maintaining it at this...
