The government can even listen (possible) to you when you shutoff the phone. Even Huawei press release dept uses Iphone and a sim card from outside China to send...

    Last year 2018, BA received 2.7 million tourists due to the peso devaluation, up 30% from that of 2017. That's one thing good coming out of the peso crash.

    Business closures in Buenos Aires

    The government employees still have their income adjusted to the inflation, and the teachers, and the doormen and taxi drivers. Things are not good, they can still shop like before, maybe a lot less. Argentines seem to be very resilient. Hard to tell if this is really bad, especially if you...
