ATMs here in Medellin also lump it together and my bank knows to differentiate it..
qowrxqratgvsm5d
are there any upscale hostels in BA that people recommend?
ecrxmygjuyjy5d
enjbkerfejcrnt you could do Selina
zwpncrvcvmcvd5d
airbnb is great, just figured i might try a hostel to meet people
sxqtnnideltxf5d
ah, which neighborhood is that in?
itihaorpqtwye5d
Palermo Soho?
aecmaswnytrkm5d
ah, i see it
wnpptovfaecjk5d
thanks UR31G91FE!
tyzhzurjhczym5d
booked it!
vlydzcapfjxsn5d
is outlet type C or I more common in Argentina?
iusjjpsgrdhjgp5d
I is slightly more common but you can usually find both.
nuekjpvdmzwgd5d
nice, thanks ๐Ÿ™‚
neghacaqjfkou5d
is it easy to find a local SIM provider?
rmllqixgv5d
Sort of. Best do it at the airport. Personal has a tourist plan but to activate it easily you have to go to a company store, which means the one at the airport or the one downtown
afrjgwmxd5d
Itโ€™s more expensive by a fair amount vs the local option but cheap in real terms
nglmvztge5d
The others I believe have similar options
apydwjowp5d
In theory you can buy a sim and then message the company on WhatsApp to give them your passport etc (because you donโ€™t have a dni) and then they will activate your account
oowunqkqn5d
But without a dni the automated system will not proceed. It doesnโ€™t like fakes either
byjhzpcifflnt5d
with the WesternUnion exchange rate, the Tourist plan looks to be $10 USD, pretty cheap
wmtrujaxoxtpc5d
WU is quoting $80.42 ARS / USD
oauxujobatdyh5d
Thanks, I think I'll go with this option
bgoeytyig5d
Do it!!
kxjmgwxba5d
Good reminder for me too actually
dtjzsdxhp5d
Turns out sending via western union is trivial if done in person vs online
pncezhjachoje5d
Yeah, I'm just going to take cash into a store here
mhjlvghuuort5d
Just switch your plan to sprint before you get there!
kbxixlylejoad5d
Hmm, interesting idea
pznwzechv5d
Depends on your needs
wggzghedl5d
I use fi, T-Mobile international , and a local usually
lktlybhki5d
T-Mobile is cheap for 15gb of lte plus 5gb of tethering data for $25 (more than I would normally spend just to keep my line active)
sxtbuwswf5d
Fi is good for weird places although it uses T-Mobile roaming agreement partners
daoprwetd5d
Iโ€™ve been in regions of South America where the roaming partner for fi and T-Mobile is not the carrier with coverage where I am
xmktymgyv5d
So I keep options open
vztdtxfoh5d
Fi will cut you off after 6mo of travel internationally under the new rules I guess
cfbnyfsnq5d
T-Mobile too
qqtvrpvkx5d
I get angry text messages from T-Mobile that Iโ€™ll be cut off but then the deadline passes and everything still works

Welcome fuwldki

hi Buenos Aires nomads, I'm going to be seeing the movie "Bacarau" with Sonia Braga and UDO KIER, at 5:40 tonight, at this location:



If anyone would like to join me, let me know! I'll probably grab something to eat afterward.
mgcvudo5d
my Spanish is not good enough without subtitles
goryeye5d
I am heading to Artemisia (Palermo) for lunch around 1pm if anyone wants to join. It is great for healthy food.
pmiaoxs5d
Iโ€™ll be arriving this Friday at around 5pm haha. See you there!
hlwxdqyjfe5d
Hey People! If someone is visiting Mar Del Plata let me know, Iโ€™m here at the moment
nticrzxsgpuzsyhs5d
I'll take a raincheck on lunch... was getting some things lined up online today.
kysiq5d
I loved that movie!
gqcewymbfzzqtugu5d
Anything with Sonia Braga AND Udo Kier has to be worth a look
zweft5d
their acting was good, but the story development is also done very well
wwfszhcicktwtwlg4d
That movie slaps so hard. I'm talking it up in several forums right now.
xjmyo4d
it was tough, for sure, and that itโ€™s based on true stories make it even stronger - I watched it in Brazil with a Brazilian friend who also told about how much of its background has been a reality for this region
yzwbnxdaupqejcyi4d
Oh wow, can you say more?
dltgx4d
my friend told that the part about corrupt politicians taking villages off the official maps (that was the google maps reference) and selling the land off to corporations has been a reality of this region (the _sertรฃo_) in the past decades.
The people from there are originally a mix of indigenous people, runaway slaves and chased off poor whites, who were for long time separated/cast out from Brazil, and just wanted to be left alone. It worked for long time because they were far away enough, but then with time they still got to be part of Brazil. Some tried to fight back (look up the war of Canudos), but were met with overwhelming forces and no mercy.

Brazil being such a polarized country still has it in lots of places that the people in power take advantage of the poorer regions in order to gain even more power and money (like even the gifts of Tony Jr included medicine that had opiates which would cause addiction instead of actually curing the illnesses) and have no respect for the actual people.

If a Brazilian comes around to correct me, Iโ€™m also happy to learn more ๐Ÿ™‚
hwlvx4d
probably should have started this conversation in the Brazil channel

Hello all, just arrived in BA today (staying in Palermo Hollywood area). Here for about a week before heading down to Patagonia. I'm always up for drinks if anyone wants to meet up.
cjiyyigxjlnjagcc3d
Thank you. I noticed that the female lead, Bรกrbara Colen, looks just a little bit like Mareille Franco, the Rio activist who was murdered (likely by government goons) in 2018.
hnrjpqoqyaes3d
Iโ€™ll be there on the 29th morning ๐Ÿ™‚
fogclstphnfw3d
hi ๐Ÿ™‚ Iโ€™ll be in BA on the 29th, staying in Palermo as well ๐Ÿ’ƒ
kuptdpqjedfl3d
any tip for co-working spaces where you can get second-bigger screens to connect to your laptop ?
xypvxa3d
Do movie theaters in Buenos Aires ever show movies with English Audio?
dzgyzf3d
Really want to see 1917, in English
qamuaz3d
Who knows movies?
mkdlpcwyx3d
They do, usually night time showings are always in English, specially for movies like that
xnwurn3d
NICE.
zydevw3d
Has anyone done a 5-8 day tour at Torres Del Paine?
tuecvm3d
Trying to figure out how much itโ€™ll cost
errifo3d
Online rates are ridiculous , Iโ€™m sure booking locally is way cheaper
lruahxreouz3d
crjhxij flashpacker is the cheapest I've seen that's easy to book online. certainly a premium over the DIY method, but not ridiculous. I'm doing the 5-day w trek through them next month (self-guided camping, meals/tent included) and it's under $1k.
yfkfhu3d
Wow $1k for 5 days is nuts.
odyaqa3d
In Peru 5 days went for $200-500
wykefekxjdg3d
You can do it in that price range if you book yourself and carry your own tent/food.
hygvsamxqyi3d
Full board is expensive though and the tent rental doesn't come cheap either
zqkwke3d
If I carry my own stuff why do I need to pay at all? Permits?
wdzyix3d
Is that guided?
xddhcg3d
(Dming you)
mcirhdfxgc2d
Anyone going to Bariloche btwn 1/28 and 2/2?
xyvipcggl2d
Hi! I am Dany from Poland. Arriving in BA on 26th of Jan, staying in Palermo :slightly_smiling_face:
<@UNUME6SMT> Cรฉspedes Coworking - they can provide an additional screen
mhybhuenmjwq2d
Thank you Dani! Have a great trip and see on the other side ๐Ÿ™‹
tolguwy2d
I am arriving today, was wondering if you remember where the store is at the airport?
mmmnmk2d
Iโ€™m doing this on Saturday night if anybody would like to join me fogonasado.com
odgthtc2d
Is there wifi at the Airport? I am thinking of ubering to my Airbnb but wonโ€™t have internet when I arriveโ€ฆ mmmm
pfglvzfsf2d
Yes thereโ€™s free WiFi at the airport
tvbjhy2d
youโ€™ll probably have to coordinate pickup location with the driver in Spanish, so be ready for that
rldpyetejprd2d
I'm signed up for that tomorrow too! See you there!
tlkxeu2d
awesome! Iโ€™m really looking forward to it
cxpvzem2d
Lovely
axfflab2d
Look forward to that

If folks are looking for daytime things to do on the weekends, there's a super popular dance party in La Boca from noon onward every Sunday.

This isn't tango, it's more like contra dancing if I had to compare it to anything. The music is live and first-rate, no need to dance if it's not your thing. And I'm generally the only gringa there... it's not big with tourists :-)

Respond here if you're interested!
rfbbagt1d
it was very easy to get picked up by Uber at the international terminal
mgpobjemnppyueci1d
Doesn't look terrible
aelpqjybvntrexaf1d
I have two portable screens. I have the biggest nerd setup ever though

Does anyone have experience with dental here in Argentina? Cheap? Expensive? Good, bad?
fpcqkff23h
My next stop is Mexico so Iโ€™m trying to decide whether to do it here or there ๐Ÿง
kotblnujf19h
Do we know whether Mexico dental work is solid? Asking because my next destination is also MX and Iโ€™m trying to decide whether itโ€™s ok to get work done there with good quality
ezfpjcwyzblof17h
Mexico does indeed have solid dental work. I used to live in San Diego and knew many people who would go to Tijuana for dental.
ynnxsjpjcceoo17h
I would imagine it varies by location, but larger cities should have quality offices.
enypqpwqz17h
Good to know, thanks!
znbradk17h
okay, maybe Iโ€™ll wait for MX then..
