    The accent in San Juan is beautiful as well - incredibly musical.

    Comparing Buenos Aires to Sydney Australia .

    I have to second the sentiment about BA taxistas. I too have found the vast majority to be educated, intelligent, and good conversationalists. And most know the city very well.

    Fear? What do you think are some of the worst things that will happen with F&F in government?

    The ironic part is, after the K's 12 years in office, there's not much left to steal.

    Maple Syrup Found in BA

    Excuse me, but to which war are you referring? Thinking back to the mid-eighteenth century, I'm not coming up with any. Guess I'll have to talk to my second favorite baseball team about their offensive name. Since Yankee Ingenuity can't exist, we'll assume all people from New England are not so...

    Vegans invade La Rural

    They have the right to protest, but not to trespass. They also don't have the right to interfere with my nice steak dinner, so they should STFU and finish their kale without bothering those who disagree with their views. Worse than Jehovah's Witnesses.

    Am I the only person in Argentina that finds the term "chinito" offensive?

    I had to say it, because, as I've pointed out here more than once, many people would never think of using 'kraut', 'mick', 'dago', or 'spic', but don't think twice about 'argie'. It's true that much of usage is self-perception.

    Am I the only person in Argentina that finds the term "chinito" offensive?

    That being said, it's a safe assumption that you would never refer to an Argentino as 'Argie'?

    Best expresso alread ground

    Make no mistake, I am the spelling/grammar police police. I feel that if you're going to criticize someone for their spelling and/or grammar, make damned sure your own house in in order. ;-)

    Best expresso alread ground

    I remember a few years back having Café el Bohio and being impressed. And I can also endorse Tienda de Café along with Silvie.

    Xoom Money Transfer

    Hey Steve, I'm curious about one thing you don't mention: In my transferring money to two different people in BA, they were hit with a banking fee that the banks said is a government fee, unavoidable. You don't mention this at all. Any idea how you're not charged a fee from the incoming bank...

    When to Know "Debate is Lost"?

    "I know you are, but what am I?" often seems more appropriate.

    Most underrated cities and towns of Argentina

    Maybe the same ratio, but I definitely feel a heightened sense of awareness there. Could just be a lack of familiarity with the surroundings, unlike in BA.

    Most underrated cities and towns of Argentina

    I always feel on edge in Mendoza - the idea that there are a lot of wealthy tourists, and many thieves are there looking for ripe targets. But I very much enjoy visiting San Juan.

    Dress code at law firms, banks, other professional service firms in BA?

    In my personal experience, it depends on the office. I have sat with professionals in suits, and those in business casual. In banking, it would appear that the seniority dictates the attire - the higher up the ladder, the more formal.
