  1. So, which neighbohoods in central BA (Palermo areas, Recoleta, San Telmo) are considered safe/unsafe as of first half of 2021, then?
    What's your take on that? Thanks.

  2. Buenos Aires CITY is actually safe compared to the outsides of the city, except for some particular places. If you wanna stay completely safe just stick to the areas with a lot of tourists like Palermo, Recoleta, Belgrano, Puerto Madero, etc and pay attention when you're using your phone outside. ALWAYS make sure the bus you'll take is going to the place you actually want to go or you might end in an unknown and dangerous place. If you have to go outside the city boundaries, make sure you go with a local who really really knows the area.

  3. Hi there! My family and I are moving to BA from Houston this summer! We look forward to your videos every week. Thats the best way for us to keep up with the current situation there. I have a high schooler, middle schooler and an elementary student. Are there public schools in the area that teach in English and Spanish?

  4. I am planning to travel to BA next year for about 2 months. I did hear about crimes over there…:-( not sure how risky it truly is , it is such a big city…I was thinking to stay in Palermo or around. Would you see at a risky area ?
