Shooping in Florida Street


WE CANNOT FAIL TO MENTION THE SAN TELMO SUNDAY FLEA MAR- KET, LOCATED IN THE ONE-TIME COLONIAL HEART OF THE CITY. ALL KINDS OF FASCINATING ANTIQUES AND HANDICRAFTS ARE AVAILABLE AT THIS PICTURESQUE FAIR. YOU MAY FIND GRAMO- PHONES OR OLS CAMERAS AND OTHER COLLECTOR ITEMS AT A FRAC- TION OF THE PRICE YOU WOULD PAY FOR THEM IN EUROPE OR THE U.S. YOU CAN FIND 'FILETEADORES', ARTISTS THAT PRACTISE A PECULIAR 'PORTENO ART', EVERYDAY OBJECTS. IN SHORT, A WORTHWHILE VISITING SPOT EVEN IT NOT PLANNING TO DO ANY SHOPPING.

TIPPING:

TIPS ARE THEORETICALLY OUTLAWED BUT SOME HOTELS OR RESTAURANTS WILL ADD 25% SERVICE CHARGE, PLUS A 21% TAX CHARGE.

MINIMAL TIP OF 10% IS STILL EXPECTED BY THE HOTEL STAFF.

IT IS ALSO COMMON TO TIP PORTERS AT AIRPORTS AND HOTELS, AND TAXI DRIVERS.


TAXIS:

BUENOS AIRES HAS AN EXCELLENT TAXI SERVICE, MEETING ALL NEEDS, INCLUDING RUSH HOUR. RATES ARE FIXED AND SHOULD NOT CHANGE DURING EITHER THE DAY OR NIGHT, AS THESE FARES ARE ESTABLISHED BY THE MUNICIPALITY. THE FARES ARE METERED IN ARGENTINIAN PESOS. OTHER CITIES ALSO HAVE ADEQUATE TAXI SERVICES.


BUSES:

THERE IS A LARGE NETWORK OF PUBLIC BUSES, CALLED COLECTIVOS. THESE COACHES COVER THE CITY AND ITS OUTSKIRTS. THESE BUSES RUN BOTH DAY AND NIGHT.

RAIL:

THE ARGENTINEAN RAILWAY NETWORK IS AT PRESENT BEING PRIVATIZED. VERY FEW LONG DISTANCE SERVICES OPERATE ENQUIRE LOCALLY AS RELIABLE INFORMATION IS SCARCE.
