Well….since the first time I came to Buenos Aires prices grew very very fast and now….all the time I go to the supermarket I think they are going to be crazy!!!
There is not the same choice than in Europe or USA but the prices now are very high…and if you consider the electronic…they are just crazy and they don’t make any sense. We have already talked of the economy and about the paradoxes of Argentina…and now I think we are next to the peak. That’s why I decided to check better and compare some prices with the equivalent stuff in Italy. Consider that in Italy (Rome) you can also find for less…in Argentina all the regular markets have almost the same prices….I’ll write ALL the prices in pesos so you can have a better idea of them and considering the regular exchange rate and not the Parallel Currency.
Toilet Paper in Buenos Aires (4 good rolls) costs 23 pesos and in Italy 8.20 pesos!!!!
It’s less expensive if your clean up with your clothes I guess
Chicken: In Argentina they have HUGE lands so the price of chicken should be cheaper…well..NOT!!! In Buenos Aires I pay 13 pesos per Kg and in Italy I pay 11.50 pesos per Kg!!!
Milk: Ok…they have o many cows there so…the milk should be almost free: NO!!!
In Buenos Aires I pay 7.70 pesos foe a liter (but I an also find at 6.50) and in Italy 5 pesos but I can also find at 3.60 pesos (no Parmalat)
Clothes Detergent: Well…after the Toilet now…we need to clean our clothes So…how much for 4 liters? In Argentina 93 pesos in Italy 14 pesos !!!!!
IT DOESN’T MAKE ANY SENSE!!!…better to stay DIRTY!
CHEESE: Buenos Aires 8.77 pesos Italy 3.70 pesos!!!!
Plastic Chair: Buenos Aires 43 pesos Italy 34 pesos!
AND NOW….the fun of fun….
TV lg32lv2500: Buenos Aires 4.300 pesos, Italy….1800 pesos!!!!
What can I say….well…just: “NO COMMENT” and ARGENTINIANS….PLEASE…WAKE UP!!!!!
