2012 Mayan Apocalypse Survivor: I’m an expat living in Buenos Aires right now on a job contract for my husband. His contract is actually up on June 30, and we are returning permanently to the States. This was quite the experience to have just before we go. It was CRAZY. Based on personal experience in living here for three years, I can say that living in a Third World Country, Argentina *is not* a country that focuses on state-of-the-art anything. During the summer, there are regular government-mandated set time power outages during the day enacted because the electrical grid is too stressed from people running their ACs in the extreme heat seen down here. I am almost positive this is an infrastructure issue, and not some kind of attack. I would be really surprised if it were. Argentina isn’t really a place where those kinds of things happen. Buenos Aires might be a world capital city, but as a country, Argentina just isn’t a front runner on anything, and “good enough” is the cultural norm here. It’s just the way it is.
