Re: Moving to Buenos Aires discussion

Most rentals have crappy furniture because furniture is really expensive in Argentina. You pay alot for low quality furniture. Viva Peron!

Most of the short-term rentals have really crappy furniture -- or at least the cheaper ones do. I'd like to upgrade a bit without paying a fortune for a luxury rental.

btw, the expenses you refer to would be called Homeowners Association (HOA) fees, or condo fees.
I dont think youll have problems paying them without a local bank account.
And for sure you are going to save money,even if you have to buy all the furniture.Because the furnished appartmets that they rent,are extremly expensive as i guess you know.

I said it was quieter as in less hustle bustle during the day.

a couple guys incl me, just post there and you'll pbb get a dinner going. Last year we had a lot of stuff going on (close to daily dinners, but tuesday 2+2 dinner day..all other dinners weren't posted that often and decided on the fly when we were hanging out) Also football but you need min 8, better 10 guys who wanna join and who will show up. Post all you want in the group and there'll be candidates for both activities!

That's not the right place. I think it was called Media Cancha (?) and I think the address was 3xxx.

Guys my gf's mom wants to buy dollars and save on the exchange rate so I'm in the market for dollars. We can average the dollar buy and sell price. LozColbert can vouch for me and I'd like someone to vouch for you too. PM if interested.

I've never known of any carnaval celebrations in the city, but wouldn't be surprised if there was something. But would tonight or tom night be bigger, I know Tuesday is usually the climax in most of the world.
