    Street Photography and the Law

    ;-) I think we used to have journalists and photographers who worked in BsAs who contributed to this forum. They would have had more than a passing knowledge of the relevant law, I'm sure.

    Street Photography and the Law

    Might anybody be able to give me Chapter and Verse on the law in relation to Street Photography in Buenos Aires? Military installations notwithstanding, I think I need permission to take photographs on or from somebody else's property but what I can see from the street I can shoot from the...

    World media in overdrive on Argentina

    C'mon now: if they really are the best lawyers in Argentina then the first question they will have asked you is "What would you like the answer to be?"

    Immigration / Rentista Visa

    A trust is a legal entity in it's own right: it's the sort of thing you set up for the profligate 18-year-old so that money is theirs but they can't touch it until they are (hopefully) more mature when older. It's the sort of thing parents set up for children who go away on gap-years, the sort...

    World media in overdrive on Argentina

    Sorry but Forbes is not "The World Media" and sadly the truth is that, as in Argentina's previous crises, "The World" isn't really that interested.

    Immigration / Rentista Visa

    This is why I keep going on about a trust fund. In the case of savings, only the interest would be taken into consideration. Place the savings into a trust fund - which is legally separate from you - and have the trust fund purpose to make monthly payments of capital to you. I CBA to go back...

    Immigration / Rentista Visa

    Didn't we establish, some time ago, in this forum that an income from a properly set up trust fund would count as a passive source for visa rentista purposes? It would mean locking some tens of thousands of dollars away in a trust whose purpose is to pay out a monthly income over a set period...

    Provincial Governors challenge the President for reducing IVA on selected items

    It's been all over the news today: for example - https://www.clarin.com/politica/provincias-llevan-corte-suprema-pelea-rebaja-iva-ganancias_0_whJkKBh1h.html What I don't understand is how any alteration of a federal tax (IVA is a federal tax isn't it?) can inflict consequences on the receipts...

    Using USA Credit Card/Tarjeta in BA and Mendoza

    OP: Have they introduced two-factor authorisation in your (American) neck of the woods yet? My (British carrier) mobile phone will receive SMS anywhere in the world and an authorisation sent to my mobile will clear a transaction without problem. One of my UK banks is a little bit clever and...

    Pro Government March scheduled for this Saturday August 24.

    For anybody interested in this sort of thing there's a BBC Radio 4 documentary - available now at https://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b08lfbh9 - about why some demonstrations work, some don't and some achieve things later that were never expected at the time

    Pro Government March scheduled for this Saturday August 24.

    A few more people at yesterday's parade.... What made it so different was that all the shops and cafes were still open for business, not shuttered and barred against attack. Consequently they were doing excellent business and when marchers became tired, they sat down at the roadside tables...

    From London to Bahia Blanca

    Not exactly concerns. My experiences in the past of travelling with the very poorest of people have been humbling to say the least. But sixty or more people in the same "room" for a day and a half without a shower???? That first journey in 2010 I had a sleeping compartment to myself and it got a...

    From London to Bahia Blanca

    The upper berth was easy to raise and lower by oneself. Not the same mechanism that I remember from the old trains.The attendant just delivered and later collected the bedding. Top tip: sort out which lower sheet fits on the upper bunk before you try to make up the beds: they are different. The...

    From London to Bahia Blanca

    About six weeks, I think. The dinner menu was a joke: most people who ordered the meal left most of it on their plate. The cafe con leche was neither cafe or leche and... and... and.. HOW CAN YOU NOT HAVE ANY MEDIALUNAS FOR SALE???? I think just one coach. There was one coach behind us that...

    From London to Bahia Blanca

    1) Yes and no 2) Yes and no To elaborate a little :-) I was out of the country at the time we made the booking. At the booking office in Retiro there was just one compartment shown as available but they wouldn't accept the booking without sight of my original documentation - which was out of...

    How has the high end luxury property market been affected by Black Monday?

    One of my favourite John Steinbeck stories is the one about Edward Wicks in The Pastures of Heaven cycle.

    From London to Bahia Blanca

    I don't know about Bahia Blanca but on Sunday I arrived back in Buenos Aires by train from Tucuman. It's not going to appeal to someone who always has to be in a hurry but if you feel the need to slow down, want to watch the Argentine scenery slip past your window or just like trains (hey - I'm...

    Coffee chat Tues. Aug 20@Starbucks

    I should love to come again but, when in town I'm in far off Comuna 11 near General Paz and I either need a free day (when do I ever get one of those?) or another reason to be in Palermo. Tonight six of us are going to the ballet at Teatro Colon so I guess I'll have to try and get there another...

    Amazon Prime ordering

    I'm not sure that I'm yet ready to risk the brain damage associated with getting ordered stuff here from whichever version of Amazon might claim to be able to deliver it but, if it is books you are after, The Book Depository, bookdepository.com is an Amazon company, delivers everything free and...

    Accumulated Inflation For The Last 12 mo. is 55,8 %

    They are obviously not using the Elhombresinnombre Egg Inflation Index to arrive at those figures: see my other post. ;-)
