Almost 1 AM here.
Wish I had more time to write, guess I could write all day, specially with the ongoing situation, the way food prices soared recently up to 150 % in some cases, most going up “just” 50% or so.
Even though the farm strike is over, it doesn’t reflect on the prices. At least we do have food now on the supermarkets, and they took away the “3 item of the same maximum” signs which were pretty unnerving.
Hey, remember the little gold research I did some time ago in Libertad street, where all the jewelry and gold dealers can be found in the capital district?
Seems that they are getting hit pretty hard by criminals these days.
A couple days ago a shop owner got killed by a robber, and a cop that tried to stop it got wounded pretty bad, think he’s still in the hospital.
According to the news, these days in Argentina it is a MUCH better deal for criminals to rob one of these gold dealer and jewelry shops than a BANK! Go figure.
They say that these places have an average of 100.000 USD worth of gold merchandize, due to current gold prices.
It was kind of weird to learn that a dealer got killed on the same street I visited just a few days ago.
But that’s life, at least here.
People may be getting killed on the next block and you don’t even notice, or even care after it happens enough times.
