In dollar terms, is Buenos Aires more expensive today with just one exchange rate compared to a year ago? Is there still a market for "blue" dollars? Thanks.
Yes, it is probably 50% more expensive (compared to blue dollar) than one year ago. There are no more blue dollars. The exchange rate has gone from 16:1 a year ago to 14:1 today, and there has been 50% inflation. It's a bummer!!
Thank you very much! How much is a bife de lomo with salad, in pesos? Thanks!
haha depends on the restaurant! Can range between $100 pesos at a neighborhood bodega and $300 at don julio i would say
I was thinking Aires Criollos on Santa Fe & Callao. As I recall, it was about 50 dollars for two. That was about three years ago. At today's rate of 15.25:1 that would be around 40 dollars for two. La Nación quoted the 15.25 rate on Monday. Anyway, it is still a "tolerable" price! I really appreciate your help!
