Partner who speaks only Spanish - helpful, but most helpful if they constantly correct you. If they just let the mistakes pass because they understood what your poor Spanish meant - not so helpful.

Re: No zinc roofing in stores?

Another explanation I heard recently is that the empresas are scooping up big or whole lots of stuff as it comes in - well funded as they are and able to read the writing on the wall. Makes it tough for the little guys.

Re: ESFERITAP on Mercado Libre

I recently had a very good experience buying coffee from montañes.com on Mercado Libre. Will go back when I need more.
By the way, are there any other foodies on the Forum now?

Re: Argentina Economy, Election, and possible default?

Considering Argentina's financial history, what makes creditors willing to lend to the country? Is it IMF loan guarantees or similar?
