    US retirees in B.A. / Argentina

    Gaucho: As a retired US Citizen living in Buenos Aires, it is doubtful the USA Embassy actually has that kind of information. Granted, some Americans feel compelled to "register" as US Citizens abroad; however, there is no legal requirement that US citizens living abroad register with the...

    Kids In Need!

    Kudos to JG! I don't often post anything to this web site; primarily because most posters get completely off topic and whine about their experiences living in Argentina. Sorry, JG, but from reading most of your posts I've felt compelled to respond that you seek medication because in the past...

    What's going on?

    Marc: I’m as perplexed as you are about the majority who co-opt the forum threads on this site to complain. I moved here just over three years ago, finding Buenos Aires and Argentina both fascinating and very welcoming. I made one well-intentioned appearance at an expat dinner back when I first...

    Pedestrian Dangers

    Bad Times In Buenos Aires

    I'll bite. The Spectator (UK rag) began the Shiva Naipaul award for writing (in English) about understanding a different culture or country in memory of one of my favorite writers, V.S. Naipaul. So, of course I bought a copy when it first hit book stores. Miranda France won the Shiva Naipaul...
