Given your definition of the word "negro" and, as we are in Argentina, you probably don't deserve to be labeled a "racist" in the strict sense of the word and I apologize if I drew the wrong conclusion when I read the following from your post: "It sure beats letting your kid and wife stay all"CABJ" said:CABJ I am talking about the word negro in porteña. Which means something like someone from a slum.
And yes they are plenty of negros in Recoleta as it is in Capital
To those who don't know what monicabb is talking about (especially since she didn't quote me in any way to support the notion that I "attacked" the woman from Mendoza), please go to the now locked topic "wannabe expats" and read it for yourselves."monicabb" said:Buts it okay for you to attack the woman from Mendoza with nasty comments and putdowns because she dared post a simple ad here .
Steve here at BAIN we have heard a lot of complaints about the ungrateful expatriates who call Argentina home.
Wa-wa-wawawa. That wasn't childish. It was infantile, but it was my genuine emotional response."monicabb" said:Steve I am not an Argentinian woman so do not chastise me on this forum like you have everyone else. You have tried your utmost to critisize me and many others with your daily comments all taken from this completely arrogant attitude. You have made rascist remarks against the people here and if anyone disagress with you within minutes you reply with childish responses,
if it aint broke.........................dont fix it!"LuLu_CT" said:Hello all !!
I have been reading these blogs for a couple of hours already and still feel unsure. Great blogs by the way! We are a recently wed couple with an 8 month old baby living in Cape Town, South Africa. I am South African and my hubby is German. He has recently been offered a job transfer to BA and we have a few days to decide. We live in one of the most beautiful cities in the world and apart from the crime and politics we are very spoilt, living on the slopes of table mountain with the sea right in front of us. We LOVE it here !! Being South African the crime in BA would not phase us at all being as street wise as one can be BUT is it the place for us? Where we live, the air is clean and we have exotic mountains, beaches minutes away. Is BA baby friendly? Are there really only parks? Is it really that polluted? Is it really that noisy? Would we find organic produce and household goods (very 'green' family) Any advise is hugely welcomed and appreciated. I have lived in Rome, Florence and Malaga (Spain) and all were great places to live. To make it easier for you ... we don't want to live in a chaotic, dirty, polluted, noisy city with druggies on every corner. We love nature and outdoor spaces and neighborhoods that are green and baby friendly.We also like fresh air I think the temptation for myself moving to BA would be to be in South America in general and close to such beautiful places, Patagonia for example BUT at the end of the day we must feel happy to be living in the city with our baby and this is what concerns us .... ok I am rambling. Please advise !!!!!!!!!! Thanks !!
Bravo for your hubbie. Starting up a company or adding to one here in Ar is the nightmare you would not want to live through. Come to enjoy and visit. But by all means stay far away for business advancement."LuLu_CT" said:Thanks dudester, you are right and I appreciate all you say. My husband has turned it down already and of course I want to kick myself but its too late to turn back. One day, for a holiday !!
