    How did you end up being an expat in Buenos Aires?

    Studied for seven years at U.B.A. Fell in love with numerous Argentine women, questioning my sanity with each one. Had to leave to restore my sanity in Miami, and just met a great Argentine woman here. Lithium here I come.

    Why would you subject a cat to needless air travel. I would leave the cat with someone trusted in Bsas. I have seen an animals personality change from traveling by jet.

    No UBA while probably the best medical school is not private. That being said medical schools and hospitals are two entirely different type of entities.

    Racism in BA, am I alone?

    Ha ha ha ha ha . I am so glad I did not pursue a degree in sociology, and have to believe in this tripe. Racism and sexism does occur in humans and in higher level primates. You need to read up on tribalism. Not to say that these practices are not repugnant to me.

    How come?

    No. A lot of Argentines get out of the Visa requirement to the U.S by using their Italian ancestry and their E.U passport.

    Rules about closed-door restaurnts etc...

    Is that the one owned by the chubby Texan, who has only a one week course as a raw food cook as his cooking credentials. Plus I don't think he runs it for profit, but uses it to augment his having a lack of a social life.

    "Leaving America"

    Give me a break. This self inflicted slight to their egos is hilarious. The name of the country is United States of America. they are free to change their name of their country to some variation of America at any time.

    Recommended Argentine Film

    No Thanks. I have Cannonball Run and Cannonball Run II on dvd. The way Burt Reynolds uses Dom Deluise as a Christ figure is pure cinematic genius.

    These are a few of my favorite things...

    Are you into actual track bikes, or are you a fixie riding hipster. If you are into the fixie scene and not actually riding in the velodrome you will be hard pressed . Most people into track bikes here are serious racers. Even though a large segment of people do enjoy this.

    More Americans Sever U.S. Ties as IRS Gets Tougher

    Choripan: You are dead nuts about Orwellian, except he is not right wing at all. Orwellian is the special nut that thinks any American politician is the root of all evil whether if they are liberal or conservative.

    Malvinas Spat ( United Kindgom beating war drums )

    Yes ,Americans are great at tricking people into wars . I love how we tricked the Japanese into attacking Pearl Harbor, when we told them that was Godzilla's breeding ground. This post is actually more laughable than my response.

    Buenos Aires vs. Colombia

    I think Buenos Aires would be perfect for you. I would seriously take grad level courses at UBA. You cannot beat the price(Free). And you will meet a ton of people, and enough chances for romance with classmates. I personally prefer the women in Argentina, but I am a glutton for punishment by...

    Buenos Aires vs. Colombia

    Be honest tell us what you are really looking for in a place to stay. Colombia, and Argentina are truly worlds apart when it comes to culture and national identity.
