To introduce myself,I am a 61 year old single man living just South of SanFrancisco.At present, I plan to come to Argentina in Sept. '10.So far, I think I would like to spend time near San Rafael.I want to take spanish lessons when I arrive. I like to play golf, and have heard of green fees as low as $4USD. Is this true? Some of the courses I have seen on the web look like they would be much more expensive.For me, cheaper is better, I don't require top $ places to play. I am thinking of retiring down here and want to look around and see what appeals to me. I would like to stay in BA for a week, then bus on over to San Rafael.Depending on expense, I might skip BA and fly into Santiago and bus on over to Mendoza. In 1980 I spent 6 weeks in Paraguay on an ill-fated sawmill job that disappeared and I found myself liking the country. How are the insects in San Rafael? I have heard that there are very few. Their were Many in Paraguay, I would hope to avoid them as much as possible. I enjoy reading this and other forums and hope to meet some of you next year.
