Hi all,

I don't know if this is the right place to post this. If it isn't please say it and I'll move it.

I'm traveling in Argentina for the last 3 months and I've never encountered a cube. I asked for it, looked for it but I couldn't find it. Now I'll go back in Buenos Aires and I would really like to buy a cube since I left all my cubes back in Holland. Can someone help me with a store where they sell them? I would like to have something else then a normal 3x3 but if that's not possible a normal one would be great too. I would just like to do something again with cubing after three months of not being able to do.

Thanks in advance!

You have to walk from the Casa Rosada in the Avenida de Mayo. Right hand you will find a toy shop. Inside you have to go right and there is it.

It cost less then 12 USD.

Thanks, and is it a specialized store or only normal ones? Oh, and what's the name of the shop?

Okay, I went but there was nothing. CasaRosada is a palace, and I couldn't find a shopping mall or something similar although I asked for one.

Of course, Casa Rosada is the palace.

But you have to walk in the Av. Mayo. This is the other big street, not the street to the obelisc.

And than you will find a toy shop on the right side (300 meters from the palace). And you have to go in the ground floor, not a big shopping mall or something else. Only a shop!!!

Ah, I'll give a try again tomorrow after school. Hopefully I can find it now, because I was pretty pissed after 30 minutes in the subway, then searching and back in the crowdy subway.

Thanks for the update, as said, I'll look tomorrow.
