So we're fine tuning our November trip to BsAs (third visit) and my boyfriend found something new and interesting/weird. He was reading a popular Argentine ExPat online publication and found a request from a guy who is an organic farmer somewhere in the countryside of Argentina. Mr. Farmer reported the exhorbitant shipping costs for UPS, FedEx, etc (we've all heard of this) and appealed to anyone coming from the US to Argentina in the near future a favor. (I know, I was thinking... "Holy SH**!! Don't you remember Midnight Express???!!".) But no. He just needed some farm type clothing, bib overalls and jeans and heavy cotton workshirts. He explained he'd like to purchase the clothing online, have it shipped to the future traveller's home (us), and then they (we) would pack it in our luggage and bring it to BsAs! Easy! So. Boyfriend talks to me, I'm like "Well. It's not like I'm going to get a big ol' box of weed from Amazon.com, now am I?". Boyfriend replies and tells the guy we'd be happy to help out. Well. Farmer Brown replied today and said "You know, actually, I'm good with clothes now. What I need is those little packets of heirloom seeds. Lemme know.". OBVIOUSLY we're out of the game now. Boyfriend replied "Sorry, we're not able to help you out at this time.". Because even bringing heirloom "tomato" seeds into Argentina is prohibited, let alone what else may have been mentioned in forthcoming emails. Is this a regular thing? If so, wow. Pretty brazen, if you ask me.
