3.28.2010

One week until I leave for Buenos Aires (for a 5-week stay), so I'm making sure I hit all of my favorite Argentina-focused websites for last-minute revelations/tips/etc. Not surprisingly, Trip Advisor has been an invaluable resource, from its reviews of lodgings to its forum full of BsAs experts. Without those travelers' and residents' posts, I would have had no idea about porteños' idiosyncrasies regarding use of cash (crisp, unmarked U.S. bills for short-term rentals, thank you very much), I'd be clueless about ATM limits and I'd be wicked confused about the Argentine kissing culture.

I've returned to a podcast I used to listen to a few years ago: Desde el Baño. It's no longer updated, but the posts that remain are fantastic for adjusting to the Argentine accent and learning some lunfardo slang, which was the podcast's main mission.

For news, I've been checking out the biggie newspapers, El Clarín and La Nación, mostly via their iPhone apps/versions. There also are some great smaller online publications, such as The Argentine Post and The Argentimes. Interestingly, Buenos Aires also has a really high-quality government website with a ton of good stuff for visitors, including about a dozen blogs. Lately I've been trying to stay up to date with the tourism blog (duh), available both in Spanish and English.

And while news is interesting, I've learned a lot from personal blogs, notably two run by Americans: Good Airs isn't updated super frequently but its archive offers an interesting view of how the country has changed during the past few years. And the newer Tourist to Townie has some great tips and insights from a 20something packing a job, language classes and as many side trips as possible into his stay in the city.

We've by no means hired a professional cleaning program. I have got cleansed homes for free of charge because they have got been customers for years. Obtain prepared to walk through your space, area by area, acquiring تنظيف خزانات المياه reasonable inventory of the areas and duties that will make up your timetable. For much less than $75, one person for 2 hours. No two houses are the same and there is usually no set charge for all homes.

I treat my cleaner well, tip generously, and make sure I get her what she wants & requires to do the job. Let our professional team of cleaners prepare your home or workplace for your event, and concentrate on the even more essential factors of تنظيف فلل بالرياض which makes it a achievement. Decide how frequently you wish to clean each area. Can't understand why people get so sculpted up about washing prices and the story in reactions, actually, can be that an concern that justifies tempers flaring?

Result, I lost a half-day, my home offers not been washed, I know that I cannot trust this organization. As the older saying goes "You get what you spend for." Of program, charging too high will shed potential clients too--most people needing cleaning solutions will possess a limit on how much they can afford. You'll get an email from your اسعار تنظيف المنازل بالرياض pro to confirm the appointment date and time, size of your home, and other details.

If you wanted to make more money than you make as a nurse you shouldn't have gone into nursing.

Someone describe to me why it is certainly asking too much for cleaning women to keep shoe covers along with all their other products in the car and put them on when they realize the carpet is usually still wet from being washed since they were therefore past due.

I have a washing business and my homes are anywhere from $65-$120 per home. With dust becoming a major factor in this region, cleaning windows thoroughly can be quite a burden, especially if the windows are longer تنظيف منازل بالرياض and open to dirt and pollution all time long. I booked garage to be washed simply because well but evidently the washing staff don't understand and believed they completed without washing the garage area.
