How do I find an apartment? What time should I show up for dinner? Where can I buy English books? You will find up-to-date comprehensive answers to these questions and many more in ¡Hola Buenos Aires!, the only English-language relocation guide based on the real experience of dozens of women who have made this city their home. This new online version has been updated to appeal to anyone coming to live in Buenos Aires, for a month or a lifetime! The University Women’s Club of Buenos Aires was founded in May 1935 to promote cultural and educational interests among English-speaking university women living in Argentina.
This eBook was born in 2012 - but was originally printed (last edition - 2003). The purpose of this eBook was then – as it is now – to share our own experiences so each newcomer can find out everything he or she needs to know assembled in one place to help them de-code what may seem strange and help them understand this country, this city and its people better and quicker. In other words, to say a very warm Argentine ¡HOLA! to you and invite you to find what you need – from where to rent or buy a house and how, to where to send the children to school, to whom to call in an emergency. This relocation guide is unique: it was written by dozens of women who are committed to sharing their expertise, knowledge and time so others can have an easier time adjusting to a new place; a place we know well. The guide addresses every aspect from culture shock and house-hunting, to legal issues, traveling with pets and medical aspects of living in a new place; it covers safety and security guidelines, driving tips, shopping guidance and even lists which products you may want to bring over, since they are not available, or hard to find. The guide also includes information on history, culture and art (with special attention given to tango), customs, shopping and climate. It also gives some travel advice, and even covers how to prepare for leaving, for those who need to move on. We included a glossary, which will help you in your first steps, before you start rolling the Argentine "castellano" with its unique sounds, on your tongue. It focuses mainly on schools, children, foods and other shopping which you will need, key legal words, and major house-hunting words. This new online version has been updated to appeal to anyone coming to live in Buenos Aires, for a month or a lifetime!
About the author
Motto: “Friendship and learning through the Universal Mind” The University Women’s Club of Buenos Aires was founded in May 1935 to further cultural and educational interests among English-speaking university women living in Argentina. Though originally written by women for women, with the publication of ‘¡Hola Buenos Aires!’ online the UWC’s aim is to reach out to men and women alike who are considering and / or coming to live temporarily or for the duration in this vibrant, demanding but never dull city: Buenos Aires. We hope that by transmitting our personal experiences of relocation we will make yours easier and smoother and that soon you will be able to call Buenos Aires your home. As our motto proclaims the UWC has a long history of promoting education and since 2002 has sponsored a school in El Pingo, Province of Entre Ríos under the auspices of the non-governmental organization APAER - (Asociación de Padrinos de Alumnos y Escuelas Rurales – Association of Sponsors of Rural Students and Schools). This non-governmental organization has worked tirelessly to promote education in disadvantaged schools in the provinces of Argentina for 27 years and has a long and consistent track record. When the possibility arose of raising funds through this eBook to APAER the UWC felt it was a good fit and we hope you will too!
