    Refrigerator recommendations?

    I don't have a refrigerator to recommend but highly recommend you pay attention to and know the power useage of the one you choose. Apart from A/C and electric heat they're a major user of electricity. I figure the Coventry brand that's in my apartment must be adding over 1,500 pesos a month...

    Corona Virus May Hit Argentina Hard

    I think it was about the 2nd or 3rd stroke of the cat and when he adjusted himself in his chair that I decide 'enough'. Also felt no need to indulge in the sensational Chinese trapped in enforced isolation, the second one. Having lived in China am well aware of how they handle 'situations'. If...

    Corona Virus May Hit Argentina Hard

    With some hesitation I enter the fray here on what's now newly named Covid-19. I've been following some medical and information threads in English out to Asia, Thailand in particular since they have quite sophisticated medical services and they're out of China's control on information. This...

    Best Coffee Roaster in Buenos Aires - Padre

    Nice. Welcome your thoughts here. If you're inclined would be great if you'd list, especially the small roasters, a description and location of your coffee recommends. This thread could be a repository on coffee roasters and coffee cafes that doesn't exist anywhere at the moment. If you're...

    Best Coffee Roaster in Buenos Aires - Padre

    Appreciate your thoughts and experience. i'm also picky about where I hang my hat for a coffee and yes, haha I hesitate to recommend places I love in case it becomes so crowded I can't get in there anymore. Their willingness to go out of their way to make a dark roast coffee in small volume has...

    Genuinely trying to understand your criticisms, since I'm holding Padre in high regard and enthusiastic to find a high quality coffee roaster that can be recommended to others. Would definitely like to see them succeed. We had distinctly different impressions on visiting their locale and...

    Best Coffee Roaster in Buenos Aires - Padre

    Interesting report. As the saying goes 'there's no accounting for taste'. Surprised, as they've been super responsive with me, accommodating and the quality of the roasted beans and the coffee it makes is outstanding. But I live too far away to be dropping in for a cup of coffee in the shop...

    Best Coffee Roaster in Buenos Aires - Padre

    Thanks again for the tip. You'll be long remembered for selfless good works. :-) Yes, prices are top of the market but considering all the positives mentioned and great coffee it's fair. And who's going to hand deliver your 1/4 kg of coffee to your door, no charge? Anywhere. Price is maso a...

    Western Union money transfer

    I remember having this issue also using the WU US website . It depends on how you get to the Receiver's information screen. If I go to 'make a transfer', select send to Argentina, receive money in bank account, source is debit card, you should then go to a screen for Receiver's Information...

    Cash Extraction Increased to $8000 At Stores

    Interesting, definitely a welcome option that never occurred to me to get around these very aggravating and disabling situations: the ATMs at other banks than your own tell you you've exceeded your daily limit and won't give out any more cash or when your own bank's ATM machines are inaccessible...

    DNI

    Dear Cassiopeia, just to note, in my case '2 failed delivery attempts' did take place on Correo Argentina's website tracking page but in fact there was no actual physical attempt to make the delivery to my address as far as anyone could determine!! The advantage of the Correo Argentina tracking...

    DNI

    Stantucker is correct, it's 'do you know the way to 485 Av Jujuy' time'. If the DNI has been created and they're getting ready to send it, eventually!!, Jujuy office will be able to see it in their computer.

    Western Union money transfer

    Ahh, okay, mystery solved I think. When your first two transfers were paid in cash in USA and delivered to your bank account, WU must of indexed you in a more formal? way.Then you fell under their rules, the ones that Gracielle found and posted. I think WU's different modalities are not well...
