acviyf4d
I can send ya a referral if you want, you get $25
nphyektffy4d
So my bank usually reimburses the fee but i think the argentine bank lumps in the entire sum together and my bank probably cant differentiate
ykknog4d
yeah it’s a bit odd, in SoFi I see the withdrawal and the fee reimbursement but no actual fee
htyxrx4d
I know some people have also been Western Unioning themselves money
arnmoitlaa4d
Haha ok gotcha but whats the max the bank lets you take out at once?
imsyaq4d
I think it’s 3500 pesos per transaction, 7,000 pesos per day total
ilbjhh4d
personally I haven’t been using a ton of cash, most places have been happy to take my card
eprnzjxyzj3d
Yea thats what im thinking
pnmfmbsqfq3d
Card might be the move... thanks a lot
eactgjpre3d
You can get up to 5000 from ATM
enplac3d
per transaction or per day?
kftroegwmy3d
Per transaction i think
qirnxsvbc3d
Per transaction
pjycazzqu3d
Per day I guess it depends on your card
xlpnlc3d
I’m going to hang out at Bodega Cervecera in palermo soho for a bit if anybody wants to watch me fall off my barstool again. Probably be there til ~8pm
sgypfcbso3d
Just Keep your center of gravity lower
ivioboewf3d
I’ll be out but later, gonna go to a friend’s bf music show around 21.30
qgtqjy3d
I’m doing a puerta cerrada for dinner, really excited
yemdchfzdqtrk3d
Does customs at Argentina check or require a departure ticket upon entry?
jdxgkoctxble3d
ztazdzimuwsd3d
It’s also perfectly okay to overstay the visa too. You’re not illegal. Just considered an “irregular resident”
daqgxwartctb3d
You just pay a $4500 peso tax at the airport
jjxkfxy3d
Is the tax just if you overstay, or in all cases?
fqdoiouzhaqf3d
Overstay
ffcihbpeuvrc3d
Y’all will love Buenos Aires
zdxdlewuhbuf3d
Best nomad spot in the world right now
bmhwhjomcrby3d
I had to do something different because I was getting too comfortable there
rfppkuz3d
I’ll be coming over next Friday for 3-ish weeks. So at the border I’ll just say I’ll stay around 4 weeks and should be fine?
dtskahv3d
(I don’t yet have a set date for departure)
qbcvtqdicaxc3d
qveevxyx yeah, won’t be a problem. They’re very easy going
vfxiuaz3d
okay cool
awasvodsqqwbahci3d
Who told me about 13 Fronteras in San Telmo? Excellent rec! Apparently they'll be opening a new place in Palermo sometime soon.
nseqdbnwzyraio3d
HSBC will let you take out 6000 per transaction.
craeqvcvf3d
Oh I told you about 13 fronteras. I adore that place and the whole atmosphere. They put a lot of love in every ingredient
wdvlxfkou3d
I was there last week and they told me they’ll have a new menu soon, so if you haven’t tried both desserts, do it before they’re gone!
lqdsyjcxjcvzixao3d
thanks U0367S8RB! another plus for me was getting into a conversation in Spanish with one of the line cooks / wait staff while I was there. It can be difficult simply to fall into an informal conversation in Spanish especially here in the Big City.

I'm hoping to return on a night when the owner is there sounds like an interesting origin story.
ezbwykfvf3d
He can tell you the stories of how he came up with all those dishes. So far it’s the only restaurant I’ve been to that serves 100% original dishes with the most unique and delicious ingredients! And every dish has an interesting story behind it, every element represents something visually
noxilhswralsnwxe2d
there were some, um, Interesting organ meats on the menu the other night. I'll leave it to y'all's imaginations as to what, and remember that this is Argentina 🙂
xdumakexixsitpqc2d
(I went for the goat, myself)
vxpblpjmi2d
I didn’t try the “interesting organs” hehe. But I did try some yacaré meatballs that were quite good
fpfytvfkwpbxepey2d
I didn't see those! Definitely going back there at least once before I leave in Feb.
skfdnkjpp2d
That’s because they were appetizers, they’re not on the menu and they change all the time
rperkpavvpdwq2d
Wow, don’t hype this place too much y’all ;)
rfadubopbfprs2d
I have a theory for the higher cost of iPhones in Argentina (no research, more of a hunch). If the average person keeps their phone for more than 2 - 3 years and they are unlocked then it makes sense why someone would pay such a premium
nfblncsxfbcvrj2d
part of it is because of super high import taxes (like 30%)
hgcazhuvj2d
60% of phones are domestically produced in Argentina
cmfrzdajc2d
It’s because of taxes stopping people buying good phones
gtmvzsgmj2d
I think “produced” means assembled however as no way does Argentina have its own chip fab etc
ddkbdj2d
ATMs here in Medellin also lump it together and my bank knows to differentiate it..
indubyeojiidp1d
are there any upscale hostels in BA that people recommend?
bfnqvjjeoxwc1d
afnbbuhrqlypsv you could do Selina
hyusmykapmkjo1d
airbnb is great, just figured i might try a hostel to meet people
qcutufhzsuivw1d
ah, which neighborhood is that in?
ylazwqputdygg1d
Palermo Soho?
smkrazofiypfl1d
ah, i see it
ggbfhvlibjkkm1d
thanks UR31G91FE!
fpmbmylsoojeg1d
booked it!
bxcvbchjqjeol1d
is outlet type C or I more common in Argentina?
lceeduzqbxsnbu1d
I is slightly more common but you can usually find both.
wfbubjzhhksja1d
nice, thanks 🙂
reahdzzuwjqvk1d
is it easy to find a local SIM provider?
qlcesgnzr1d
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
gylqtrwih1d
It’s more expensive by a fair amount vs the local option but cheap in real terms
coslnbjqk1d
The others I believe have similar options
ooepkqksk1d
In theory you can buy a sim and then message the company on WhatsApp to give them your passport etc (because you don’t have a dni) and then they will activate your account
kxqdhpgiv1d
But without a dni the automated system will not proceed. It doesn’t like fakes either
lkpxrspuvywqn1d
with the WesternUnion exchange rate, the Tourist plan looks to be $10 USD, pretty cheap
lzpiqithjhvsl1d
WU is quoting $80.42 ARS / USD
gmfbhrcqogedc1d
Thanks, I think I'll go with this option
yxqotdglm1d
Do it!!
zgywqojbl1d
Good reminder for me too actually
wkelnduut24h
Turns out sending via western union is trivial if done in person vs online
rlitktswesvqy24h
Yeah, I'm just going to take cash into a store here
tbaiozrgtjzs24h
Just switch your plan to sprint before you get there!
sbgykltavcvdg24h
Hmm, interesting idea
yfxxiipaw23h
Depends on your needs
cguqruvoj23h
I use fi, T-Mobile international , and a local usually
zvygqftdg23h
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)
atdamdfdb23h
Fi is good for weird places although it uses T-Mobile roaming agreement partners
lmrdmgnan23h
I’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
unumiqegu23h
So I keep options open
bzytrtmkw23h
Fi will cut you off after 6mo of travel internationally under the new rules I guess
kqpbdonej23h
T-Mobile too
unieujqzi23h
I get angry text messages from T-Mobile that I’ll be cut off but then the deadline passes and everything still works
pkatleshqjfdvard23h

aawhwuxfa23h

oukfnx22h
ujucqri just arrived in 💃 Buenos Aires, #argentina
mqvnczt18h
Welcome kssspzb
tajaepdvdrcocgoi17h
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.
wdihoxm15h
my Spanish is not good enough without subtitles
dgfusrx15h
I am heading to Artemisia (Palermo) for lunch around 1pm if anyone wants to join. It is great for healthy food.
mqbxxeo13h
I’ll be arriving this Friday at around 5pm haha. See you there!
uleveoszhs12h
Hey People! If someone is visiting Mar Del Plata let me know, I’m here at the moment
qbwuwruizcjmsvgt10h
I'll take a raincheck on lunch... was getting some things lined up online today.
znbab10h
I loved that movie!
ysqvsvzwloxiybql10h
Anything with Sonia Braga AND Udo Kier has to be worth a look
cahne10h
their acting was good, but the story development is also done very well
lqkpvqqithgylkhx7h
That movie slaps so hard. I'm talking it up in several forums right now.
jujph7h
it was tough, for sure, and that it’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
