      Thank you Sandra for your many free consultations regarding my plans to retire to Buenos Aires from Miami. Not once did you hesitate to share your valuable experiences and insights. I had no idea that you had this web site or that you provided these services for a professional fee. This is what is known as altruism,folks. Rest assured Sandra,that if I'm able to resettle there I will be hiring your company for much need assistance.

      Kindest regards,
      Geoffrey Nolan

    3. After moving to Buenos Aires, my husband and I would probably still be wandering around, getting lost every day, without the excellent advice and help from you, Sandra.
      Muchas gracias,
      H and Candice

      Thank you!!!
      katti, Buenos Aires.

    5. Dear Sandra,

      First and foremost, thank you for your detailed blog. It serves as a great real-time resource for those of us traveling to BsAs. Thank you for your hard work!
      We have safely returned from South America and your website was invaluable when we were making our plans.

      I just wanted to thank you again for putting forth such a great resource and for getting back to us when we needed your help. Good luck in all of your endeavors, and I hope to use your site again shortly! :D

      Warm regards,

    6. After much searching, your blog was the only place I could find any information regarding the Carnaval in Buenos Aires. There are 6 of us traveling for our first time to Argentina in two weeks, and I have been trying to find ANYTHING about the upcoming events while we are there, and you are the only one with any information!

      Thank you so much, and I will be recommending your website to anyone that is planning any travel to BA.



    7. I just wanted to say THANKS ALOT!

      I’m from The Netherlands, but not exactly a Tourist in Argentina - I moved to Buenos Aires over a year ago. However, since then, your blog has been the only place I’ve ever checked for things to do. It is so complete, I’ve never needed anything else. It has all the events, with such detailed information! And you’ve never been wrong about any of it J

      So on behalf of me, and all my friends that I’ve surprised with events they had never heard about (but I did, thanks to you), THANK YOU!

      Best regards,

    8. Allison9/30/2013

      I just wanted to write to tell you what a great blog you have. I've lived in BsAs for 7 years and haven't found another source that highlights events around the city as well as you do. So please don't stop posting!

      Thanks again,
