Glad I saved you some time. I, of course, didn't have the same luxury. Anyway, get used to it. Everything is stupid down here, in that way. But there are some really great things about living down here too

Re: Moving to Buenos Aires discussion

Hey all, long time lurker here. Have been in Buenos Aires for only a week and my wallet was stolen on my second subway ride (noob)... anyways, while I'm waiting for my new bank card to arrive, would anyone be willing or does anyone know of anyone who would take poker stars money or party money for cash? would prefer party. I'm willing to meet up wherever and would obviously ship first. Thanks so much for any help, would be hugely appreciated.

imho the dessert platter is just phenomenal. i think they've taken it off the menu now (it was like 90 pesos) but you can still ask for it. it's basically all their desserts (plus some?) on a platter. awesome.

I've got 3 mb download and 2 mb upload. I'd like faster. Did anyone figure out a decent solution?

Just to update, I got the 6 MG plan for 60 Peso's/Month. I'm now testing between 6/7 mb per second on download time. Much improved, on Fibertel.
