Argentina Craziness

UPDATE: Unfortunately we have not been able to keep up with this page, so it is now dedicated to the archives. We wish we had more time to document the craziness here!


As a foreigner living in Argentina, you often see many things that just make you scratch your head and wonder how people put up with it. Eventually, you just come to accept most of these things.

Here’s our timeline of some of those many crazy stories, which help to show what the people of this country go through on a daily basis. This selection is especially focused on the fiscal policies of the government and the gap between the official exchange rate for the US dollar and the blue market (dolar blue) rate. We’re sure we missed a bunch of great stories, so please feel free to suggest a story to us.
