"Not what you know but who you know"

Just as human language ,genetics and customs vary from place to place but as a species we continue to be the same funny apes or clay/iron/corn/wooden men who like in varying degrees to kill, maim have sex and bitch about life.

Meaning in all socities regardless of their customs will you find time and again the same underlying mechanics of power and connections.


Am I telling you to give up your mission of
changing locations or seeing the world?
NO.
Simply giving you a heads up to hopefully avoid and/or better confront unlikely expectations

What is your overall opinion of Argentina? Are the women better than average? I see you've traveled the world, so you much have a frame of reference. Are jobs somewhat plentiful?

Australiaphobes will exaggerate the crapness of Australia.

Bottom line. It's like current America had a kid with current England and sent it ten years into the past. Make of that what you will.

I've heard that Australia is just feral England.

I left 6 years ago already.
I was based in Bs As and the city was becoming more and more urbanized and/or gentrified.
I love my people who are a lot friendlier and heartier than many would think by let me tackle it by points

Overall
Great place to live in if:
-you are not part of the rat race and/or have independent/ foreign cash coming in
-you have streetstmarts and locate a part of your perceptive resources to make sure you re not robbed.

Women
I remember liking how concerned they were about their looks.
While initially they might seem more feisty and less dense than the typical Spaniard or Italian, they still tend have a gold digger mentality primarily concerned about status and the state of their ass.
A foreign passport can cut a lot of steps to hot ass Wink

Edit:
For the sake of sanity,DO NOT put money in an Argentinian bank

We move between light and shadow, mutually influencing and being influenced through shades of gray...

Where are you living now? Do you know many foreigners that lived there? What did they do for jobs?

I've been nomadic in western/northern europe for almost 4 years now.

I did know a few in a working age/position.They were either

-Erasmus kind of studying abroad year young europeans
-Sabatical year young europeans/aussies

These two would often be at entry level positions in teaching english or customer service,often with little to no ability other than being able to speak english and/or another foreign language plus being exotic genitals (specially the women of course)

-Middle aged Northern europeans/americans:
These guys would normally be down in Bs As because they hooked up with an argie woman and were either waiting for the paperwork to happen so they could move on back to their own countries and/or try their hand at the local life.
Most often than not they would free lance or bring their work from abroad (journalists,researchers,coders.etc) so their income would land them in a comfortable position when converted to the local currency.
When these guys were working in a company environment they would go for a more qualified position (a good example: Dane guy in a financial research company I worked in was handling all the data in scandinavian languages)

Sometimes an older middle aged fellow would be brought in to an executive position,in which cases they pretty much were dandying around barely inter acting with the local populace in any meaningful way until he was switched to the next position in the next country.

What do you do for an income stream? Are you originally from America or Europe?

Are White American expats treated like black sheep, or are they well received in Argentina and Europe?

I'm a a backpacking vagrant engaging mainly in street art and the occasional odd job that may spring up in the way.
Was raised in Argentina though born in the US

I think the common stereotype that Americans are obnoxious still stands.
But if you can prove through simple manners and conversation that you are not a douche I think most people in Argentina and Europe would be rather welcoming,plus the exoticness factor always wakes interest.
There's plenty of threads about being an specially an american expat in this forum with differing views on different places, I would recommend you check them out for tips and ideas.

RE: Plans For Leaving The American Circus
It's not always harder to move abroad. I moved to China in 2009 and was working a decent job and banging countless 18yo girls.

Sadly, it's the opposite of paradise there now, but there are always options better than your current location. Just do research instead of asking.

I read a lot of those threads you talked about El Gostro, and I gleaned some good information about location independent jobs. I've been searching upwork and freelancer.com for work right now.

I left America in '92 and my general theory was that it saved me. You have to remember that everything has a limited timeframe for advantages. It may last 5 or more years. Nowhere is there continual paradise.
