    Argentine Facturas

    Definitely check out the chipá in the panaderias that have them. Not every one does, but they are gooooooooood. Maybe we should start a thread for our favorite places to get medialunas. I have had some bbbaaaaaddd medialunas, enough so that I hesitate to ever buy them from a place that I don't...

    Looking For Cheap Coastal Desintation

    I went to Punta del Diablo once, because it was recommended to me. I didn't do any research ahead of time and rented a car with a friend to drive up from Montevideo. It's farrrrrrrrrrr, I think a 6 hour drive so in total made for a lot of traveling. It was really windy, and in November it was...

    Best Mexican Food - Where?

    I remember going to Xalapa when I first got to BA in 2008... I ordered a margarita and it was so bad I haven't been able to stomach margaritas since. This was back when I was all fresh and optimistic and I remember telling the guy that something was wrong, something was off, there's no way this...

    Best Mexican Food - Where?

    I like the tacos at La Fabrica del Taco also, I know it comes off a shawarma thing but I love all the sauces and onions that they give you, it makes for a goo 18 peso taco! haha. It's big though. If you're doing homemade, you have to look up Pancho Villa Tortillas on facebook! She makes the...

    Best Mexican Food - Where?

    Food trucks are illegal in BA, notwithstanding chori trucks which are mafia-run/their own mafia (I'm not sure what the actual details of it are). :-) Fun stuff, eh? Evidently the law prohibits anything that produces smoke in the streets. As for Mexican, I haven't been there for a while but I...

    Follow-Up On Pub Crawl Attack From 1 Yr Ago

    He's (Mike) got some relation to the crossfit guys and I have heard random updates from now and then through them. Last I heard that had identified the guy, they knew who it was (I guess this grandson of Videla), but absolutely no justice was served and they never even arrested anyone. Again...

    Pickpockets On The C Line...

    I would say the best thing you can tell them is to keep everything in a zipped pocket and keep a hand on the zipper when in any big groups of people. This shouldn't be too alarming as that kind of theft is common all over the world. Zipped pocket and hand on the zipper at all times, also be very...

    Etiquette. You Take A Taxi, I Take The Bus. Who Pays What?

    It's not such an odd thread, it's a legitimate question. I'd say it's one of those many times in life when it's very important to be clear from the beginning. "Look, I plan to take the bus," and as it was said up there either the friend will come with you or he might tell you to just come along...

    Corruption And Cost Of Living And Expat Destinations

    My first response to this is: way to start a thread off directly attacking another member! That was just... not cool, and completely unnecessary. Besides that, I think you are correct that those of us who bring first world currency to 3rd world countries are definitely benefiting from the...
