    Massage studios

    desertrose, hi. There are several featured massage places on this very site, the question is are you looking for a certain type of massage (deep tissue, shiatsu, etc)?

    Why all the smoke in the air?

    :-) well, if you put it in that context, it keeps everything in perspective then :-) Smoke will eventually blow over. This smoke is in defiance to the Non-smoking ordinance ( I am a non-smoker thanks!) that was put into place for eating establishments - now smokers can step inside these...

    U.S..Citizens - why did you move to Buenos Aires?

    Hi,sergio. I think they do. It is just that inherent to the USAmericans is wanderlust. They adventure is too much to subdue within especially the much younger generation. I have known quite a few people who thought of going outside of the US to retire, but they find some rural counties at the...

    U.S..Citizens - why did you move to Buenos Aires?

    George Dubya (did I spell that right?) alone cannot do anything to jeopardize your pension, really. And let's face it, five years is not that far away,yes, but alot of things can happen within the next 5 years, both in the USA and Argentina. Our USA-based retirement "schedule" changed...

    Supermarket inflation

    HDM, when you get to Buenos Aires drop me a line or two. We can bargain hunt together without compromising on quality. I believe it is doable. If you really want good stuff you must be willing to pay for it, albeit in pesos, dollars or euros. Am I not right?

    Why all the smoke in the air?

    See, see, I told you. Saying anything bad against Argentina was going to get some of you guys in to trouble (wagging finger here). What smoke? There is no smoke. Just think happy thoughts and go to that hapy place - see all is well that ends well. No more negative stuff about BsAs, k? Let us all...

    Why are the eggs not kept refrigerated?

    DA, get 1/2 a dozen of eggs refrigerate 3 and then leave 3 on the counter (no direct sunlight) and test one or two at a time from each batch and see and compare how that affects you. That is one way to see how YOUR body reacts to unrefrigerated eggs. Most likely nothing will happen but I can see...

    Gym membership

    schenderson, hi. As pedroC stated the MEGATLON en Las Canitas is very good. It is just 1/2 a block from where I live and I can vouch for how good it is. Good luck.

    Supermarket inflation

    Yeah, sergio you are indeed hallucinating and I think just like me these high prices in BsAs being just in our imagination is made worse by us drinking that water from our bongs. Thanks for the clarification. Wow man!

    Why all the smoke in the air?

    Sergio, I am warning you man, one more complain and someone is really going to call the complainers a "sissy" (wink-wink). You know you are in Argentina because you like the smell of smoke and cannot live without it. You are there because you so love the place, just fess up already. Smoke is...

    Supermarket inflation

    cbphoto, I am not sure where you shop in the US but prices of grocery items have not gone up as much as they have in Buenos Aires. The only thing that had gone up steadily (average of $0.03 cents per day) is the price of gasoline, besides that makeup, pickles, meat, veggies, fruits, 3-ply toilet...

    Supermarket inflation

    sergio, I am hoping that the government and the farmers are coming to an agreement, I see that they are not. Should the hoarding commence? Are we to stock up our refs "just in case" we have some empty grocery shelves once again in another week or two? Between the smoke and yet again another...

    Where can I go to escape the smoke?

    Ladies and Gentlemen, there is no escaping the smell and health hazard of this smoke, it goes as far as an hour away going north and same thing is observed and suffered one hour south of Buenos Aires. Buenos Aires - good air, remember? I so vividly remember someone saying - what is that? -...

    any update on the after effects of the farmer's strike

    BAJoe, your words spoke the truth. There were and are still people that live with hunger even long before the recent storm of strikes. 30 days have started ticking away and will go by fast, and then after that - what? I hope a resolution and a binding agreement between the 2 parties is hashed...
