    American-style granola

    I agree that people can be very complacent with the massive amount of food options they have today. Just a few hundred years food choices were very limited and depended on hunting and having some crops. Yemen was considered once the breadbasket of the middle east but today its a hellhole where...

    Argentina versus Uruguay

    Montevideo after a few days feels depressing . Many people have said the same and most expats leave for this reason . Arequipa Peru is the opposite It uplifts the soul and never feels boring nor depressing

    The produce in Argentina is bad. Why?

    Most vegetables in Argentina are doused in pesticides with the highest use of agrochemicals per hectare they are in the main a hazard to health. There is a excellent documentary called Bad Seed on youtube about Soya and its devastation on communities in the north Of Argentina . Thousands of...

    Market For a Luxury Realtor with Multiple Languages and Experience

    There is absolutely no credit in Argentina and top end apartments sell very slowly due to lots of offer and low demand . There are many famous cases of properties being on the market for years without selling . This would be considered rare in the United States or Australia . Buenos Aires has...

    Market For a Luxury Realtor with Multiple Languages and Experience

    It is very rare that wealthy foreigners will invest over 1 million in real estate here . Most of them are looking for bargains as it is South America .

    massive power failure

    For me there is absolutely no difference with Macri as there have been many blackouts in the last year . With all the money they earn now from the people where is the investment and accountability?

    Argentina versus Uruguay

    Its been a few years since I have been in Montevideo and I have to say that this time I liked it a lot . The issue I had in the past was that I stayed in Ciudad Vieja which has a very different vibe to the wealthy upmarket neighbourhoods of the city . In the neighbourhoods of Carrasco . Pocitos...

    I love the Venezuelans in Buenos Aires

    The food is wonderful in the Duhua restaurant but the service is below standard for a 5 star hotel . Four seasons is outstanding for service and their food is top notch

    I love the Venezuelans in Buenos Aires

    Humility is very hard to find in Buenos Aires and I believe that this is one of the biggest gripes of long term expats as there are a lot of very arrogant people in Buenos Aires which is the opposite of most of Latin America . I am currently in Montevideo and the service in all establishments is...

    Favourite tango classics

    I agree 100 % about your comments about Varela . Her voice is not attractive at all and is very grating . For me tango is a energy and strong vocals do not go with the passion of tango . I have to say that Argentina does not have in general great singers . The only voice that I liked was Gustavo...

    Favourite tango classics

    I agree with you as tango vocales distract from the pasión of tango. Astor Piazzola is a genios imho and will be remembered for eternity for his profound soul .The best álbum of Astor Piazolla was the Rough dancer and the cylical night . It is pure melancolía

    Child Poverty Above 50%

    I am a realist not a fantasist and will express my reality as I see it. Argentina is much much worse today than 5 years ago. I am a free thinking moderate capitalist not a savage evil capitalist as is the system now. I do not want a return to Peronismo but I do not want Macri even more...

    Child Poverty Above 50%

    Im not surprised and poverty has doubled under Macris watch (still some expats praise him ) Food is terribly expensive in Argentina even though we are a breadbasket and can feed the world technically .
