Argentina Census, Wednesday October 27, 2010

For anybody that's visiting Argentina on October 27, please note that most everything will be closed until 20:00 (by law, with criminal penalties for non-compliance) . That includes supermarkets, kioscos, restaurants, bars, theaters, etc.

Public transportation is supposed to run on a Sunday schedule, however I don't know what the availability of taxis will be like during the day.

At least one member of each household is required to stay at home to meet with a census worker. The workers will verbally ask questions and fill in a government form with a special pencil The lucky ones will only have to answer the 35-question short form.

I have no idea how they are going to count hotel guests, but the government definitely intends to count tourists. If you are staying at a hotel that day you should check what the situation is regarding hotel food services.

[¿Los turistas también tienen que ser censados?
Sí, los turistas deben ser censados ya que el censo de hecho es como una foto instantánea de la República.
]

The government gazetted the requirements last Wednesday, only 7 days before the census ...

Here's a pdf of the census form, of course it's password-protected so you can't print it ...

This little ratite is notoriously shy and usually nocturnal.

You know, this came close to happening. I thought about going through SCL to fly into AEP, but between the uncertainty about closing dates and the long SCL connection time, I am flying LIM/EZE (on the 26th, just after medianoche). This clearly, and not the census, is why you are fleeing the country

LIM.... hmmm.... do you know if the SCL to JFK flights operated by LAN go directly or do they also puddle jump in LIM...??? I cant get the quirky LAN website to tell me and the 0800 number is manned by morons that take about 20 minutes on hold before they try to communicate some weird dialect...

Nopo. It works better for me now to keep banking the miles in the Alaska Mileage Plan - I earn EQMs on LA. On the intercontinental flights, I am either redeeming miles or in paid discounted J. If I was flying in Clase Basura, I'd investigate Lanpass or another OW program.
