    Driving in Argentina. (Non rental cars)

    Interesting experience. Thanks for sharing. I had another friend that went and when he told them he had a license they said he needed it legalized first and they made him do the probationary period.

    Good Tailor For Suit Alterations

    Yeah thats the one. He told me pricing for a 3 piece suit with a decent wool from Italy would be about 200,000 pesos. He seems to know how to make decent suits, but nothing that wows me. He seemed a bit resigned to trying to make the suit fit my less than normal frame. Im 6' 2" and about 230...

    Good Tailor For Suit Alterations

    I went to the guy in the newspaper article mentioned previously in Recoleta. He was good but not 100%. He has a lot of work at the moment, and I got the feeling he was not interested in spending a lot of extra time with me to get it just right. To his credit, he got everything within 95% of...

    What is involved in getting a Driver’s License here?

    Hi Has anyone with a valid US license done this recently in CABA? My friend was told 9 months ago that his US could only be taken into account if he had a document from the embassy legalizing it. So he ended up with the beginners license. Info on the CABA gov site seems to confirm this...

    Best yoghurt in BA Hands down the best. Made from water buffalo milk. They also have "firme" which is the closest thing to real Greek style yogurt you will find. They also have an option for a large bucket of it if you use a lot (buying dozens of little jars is quite annoying when...

    Can I enter the United States?

    We went with my wife doing ESTA no problem. But we went directly from Argentina to the US. You should look at the exemptions for US Citizens and their families to those rules. I was worried about that myself as my wife's passport is from Spain (even though we have not been present there) and I...

    Reduced flight schedules and current entry / exit requirements

    So we came back and then heard nothing. No one called us, no one checked on us and absolutely no follow up since then. Seems like they only follow up on some people. Perhaps they have some criteria to determine who they actually follow up on or its random.
