there are plenty of girls with round bums, but women here tend to have euro rather than latina style bodies, its true.

you can't get your wireless to function anywhere? sounds like a problem in the settings on your machine.

Yeah IDK theres definately something wrong in the apt is what the landlord says, supposed to be getting it fixed, but outside wireless is pretty spotty although, late last night was able to get a couple hours without incident.

It is a brand new laptop so I guess it could be but prolly not since it worked for couple hours right, I mean it would be intermitently messed up on the machine end right?

Re: Moving to Buenos Aires discussion

Hey guys,

I am going to be traveling from June 12th-September 12th and am gonna rent out my apartment for that time. I figured I'd put it on here before I jacked up the price and posted it on craigslist. I will charge $750US plus you pay the bills (around $100US). Some details:

On Carranza and Guatemala. Location is great, blah blah.
A one bedroom duplex loft, with the bedroom and bathroom upstairs.
A 'home office' upstairs with large desk, computer chair, filing cabinet, printer/scanner.
20" Dell monitor.
Queen size bed with all bedding provided.
Lots of storage throughout.
A recently remodeled fully stocked kitchen.
Facing the street is a 15 foot high window that provides more than enough light.
Remote controlled blackout canvass curtains that cover said massive window.
HD Ceiling mounted projector that projects a 125 inch image on said curtain.
Inputs for projector are VGA and HDMI (I usually just watch movies from my laptop).
DVD player with home theater.
2 different broadband internets and two different wireless routers. One is 3M and one is 1M.
Security safe.
Small balcony that overlooks the street.
Doorman who can fix just about anything.

You have to use my maid (I've had her for almost 5 years and trust her) once a week, 50 pesos a pop.
Deposit is $1200US. Rent is pay as you go.

I am going to put the place on the market shortly after I get back, so if you plan on having a lot parties and chit like that, don't bother inquiring bc I do not want to deal with a lot of damages/repairs.

Let me know if you want to come by and take a look or I guess I could send you pictures (I didnt want to deal with posting in the thread).

Re: Moving to Buenos Aires discussion

I'm not a surfer so I don't really know but I'll try to help you. Right in Buenos Aires there really isn't any surfing that I know. In some places on the river right outside of the city, San Isidro, Vicente Lopez etc. there are quite a lot of people that are into windsurfing and kitesurfing though.

I have stayed at hostels in Mar del Plata, Punta del Este that seemed to especially cater to surfers. So in those places, I'm sure there's some. I don't know how good it is. I wouldn't even know what good surfing means though. I'm sure there has to be some kind of known surfing forum where people talk about various locations. Ask about Mar del Plata, Villa Gessel, Pinamar (all within 5 hours car). In Uruguay, look for Punta Del Este and Punta del Diablo. Punta del Diablo is full of surfers.

I second this. Punta del Diablo is not only an awesome place to go (there's a club called Bitacora in the middle of nowhere that people go walking and it rocks) but also very good for surfers.

Problem is if you don't go during peak season (January/February) then it's a ghost town and it's quite far from Buenos Aires.

Best bet is to find a doc and go from there. I have some names if you want to PM me.
Hi Could you tell me the names of the doctors you found in BA to get a prescription? I am having a hard time locating one. Thanks, Megan

1- Cold and dark.
2- Everyone leaves but somehow it is still overcrowded
3- Yes, you will
4- Winter: nights between -2 and 8 (also morning), afternoon something between 10 and 20.
Summer: nights between 18 and 30, afternoon something between 24 and 35. It may get worse.
5- In winter? Very few days.
6- Of course.
7.1- Una reverenda verga. 7.2- 20 minutes i guess.
8- Depends where.

puerto madero im pretty sure is very safe, and palermo i would guess safe enough to walk at night, about all the other places, I don't have enough information.

Re: Moving to Buenos Aires discussion

i mean you don't have to ask every random question, some of these things can wait.

Swiss medical is 300 pesos a month.

Maid is about 15-20 pesos an hour but might be able to get it cheaper who knows.

Where to go for weekends, I don't know, research it and do it if it sounds like your thing. You're in south america, i'm sure if you want to leave you can do some exploring. You can always stay in the city.

Depends what you want for breakfast? I don't know, this isn't a big breakfast city.

I get a masseuse, she comes to your house for 140 pesos for an hour.

There is a 24 hour place or two but whether they deliver to you depends on where you live. This isn't the best city for 24 hour food.

Day parties, uh, yes, like every other city?
