Argentina is best known for its massive terrain encompassing the Andes Mountains, glacial lakes, and grass lands which serve as the traditional grazing grounds for its delicious and famous beef. However, it’s not all a rosy picture; recent policies plagued with corruption and economic mismanagement have left the economy suffering. Last year the inflation rate in Argentina hovered around 40%; fortunately, this year inflation is decreasing and people generally seem to have a sense of optimism that the economy is improving. One thing I learned quickly is that in Argentina you must have patience or be willing to improvise. Things seem to take longer here be it transportation, visa processes, or purchasing things with a credit card. If a meeting is set to start at 8:00 sharp, expect that it will probably not start until a few minutes later.
