Pasen y vean

I found this article in a February issue of the New York Magazine:

"Buenos Aires has become an expat haven like Paris in the twenties–except with girls in bikinis."

"It’s like living in the Hamptons, he says. Except the whole thing costs just $1,400 a month."

Since Argentina’s 2001 financial collapse put a two-thirds-off sign on everything in B.A., the city has become a playground for Europeans and Americans looking to relax or reinvent. The exact number of transplants is hard to pin down—under Argentina’s lax immigration regulations, many expats live illegally for years on 90-day tourist visas—but signs point to a boom. The number of Americans registered with the embassy jumped nearly 13 percent between 2004 and 2005.

What do you think?
