I've spent months in various Latin American countries and can easily see myself living in one of them, but not full-time. I'm not so sure about DW. My Spanish is pretty good, hers is non-existent. We haven't visited BA yet, and would like to do so, but then there's this:

Buenos Aires hit by rush hour rail riot,,2080670,00.html?gusrc=rss&feed=networkfront

Arson, looting and fighting with riot police broke out among angry Argentinian commuters when rush hour train services from a Buenos Aires station were delayed last night.

Twelve police officers were injured by flying rocks, mostly with cuts and bruises to the head and chest, and nine people were treated for smoke inhalation, said Alberto Crescenti, a spokesman for emergency medical workers.

Police fired rubber bullets and teargas when rioters pelted them with rocks as the fighting at Constituçion station spilled out to the street. Angry passengers shattered windows, set fire to a ticket sales area, looted shops and ripped payphones from walls.

It's a big city and I don't know if the trouble was anywhere near the parts of town we'd be hanging out in, but still.
