Mumm is a good buy at 600-800 pesos
Chandon a little bit drier if you like that - about 1000 -1200 now
Baron B from the Chandon bodega , is probably my favourite sparkler - about 2400 . I think.
Reds to come later
IM Jolly is one of my favourite Rikki Fulton characters
For non Scots , Last Call is a parody of a late-night piece on STV called Late Call
White wines traditionally dont travel well. So be careful. Viñasol from Torres in Spain is a really decent white in Spain but very time I have had it in the Americas it has disappointed
Some of the oak-aged chardonnay from USA do a little better but I wouldn't spend any serious cash on imported wines.
I don't know very much about Italian whites so maybe I am mistaken here.
You can get some decent Argie whites at around 500 and some good ones at 900/1000. At 1500 and upwards you are getting some really good stuff.
My favourite Argentine white right now is Trumpeter Chardonnay at around 1000 pesos.
Apparently , Mirtha Legrande asked him offstage... it's real he told her.
I started to watch it but then I realised it was an hour-long. I will do this at the weeeknd.
He seems to be fairly right-wing in his economic viewpoint. Keen on reducing subsidies and getting people to work for any money the government gives them.
Eurnekian likes to control all new political movements to make sure his back is covered in case they were to win an election.
Milei worked for a time at AA2000, the company that manages the concession at almost all of Argentina's airports.
I know a few guys there and when I ask what Milei did there, they tell me he was a "consultant"
Knowing my friend Eurnekian he will be reaching out to all the other parties as well.
I hear that Milei is backed by Eduardo Eurnekian, one of the wealthiest Argentine businessmen.
So if he stands he will have the financial clout to mount a decent campaign.
Can anyone remember Ally Macleod? the Scottish manager of the time who had convinced us that we were going to win the World Cup...?
He could have been a great candidate for the next president of Argentina...
My mate's Dad was the Scottish team Doctor at the 78 WC - Some great stories but unfortunately I cannot write about them on a public forum.
I value the lives of my family and my friends.
I got my lawyer working on it.....
Do the people who do not wish to use inclusive language have any rights ?
I learned Spanish in Spain and have studied Spanish in universities in Scotland and in Spain. I also listen to what the Real Academia has to say on grammatical issues.
Surely I have some rights. But if I am in a minority , surely I should get some grant or subsidy from the government.
If you use a bank you will get the official rate ......
Very few people use banks for FX transactions
WU is cash pick up and you dont need a bank although if you have an Argentine account ( after getting full residency) there is a way of using them for peso transfers.
WU is the best option at the moment.
Today they are paying 206.8 , slightly above the blue rate. WU is using a mechanism called CCL , which is used by those trading in shares that are quoted in NY and BA . Basiclly you send dollars to yourself from a US account, to be picked up in pesos from a WU office or one of their agents .
Cash is available literally minutes after you send it to yourself. You need a photo ID to pick up.
There are other similar ways but WU has been the most competitive during the last 2 or 3 years.
Some property owners will accept prepayment as a form of guarantee. It will depend on each individual case.
be prepared for 6 monthly or even quarterly rent reviews .
If you agree to pay in dollars, do not agree to rent reviews, these are intended for those who pay in Pesos.
What's the price of a Kit Kat in the UK now>?
The three-year lease is normal according to the current Rental Law. Shorter leases are possible but would be outwith the scope of the current law.
This is rumoured to change very shortly to two years.
Do you know which part of town you want to live in?
Are you on your own or are you bringing family?
Don't they already have that information from your nat ins number?
They know everything you did and where you worked
But they want to bore you and let you walk away from what is yours.
