Communications

The post office is located at BolĂ­var and Ayacucho (Monday-Friday 8 a.m.-8 p.m., Saturday 9 a.m.-noon). Telecom cabinas telefĂłnicas are quite common. Internet, on the other hand, is quite a rare beast and Skype even scarcer. At Plaza 9 de Julio is Ola with both internet ($1.15 per hour) and phone (ColĂłn 1778). Cheaper yet, at $0.60 per hour, are Cyberfun (San Lorenzo 2268) and El Cyber Templo, which has Skype and is open 24 hours (BolĂ­var 2145).

Medical

Hospital Doctor RamĂłn Madriaga is a bit far from downtown (Avenida LĂłpez Torres 1177, Tel.: 44-7000 / -7775). Pharmacies are located throughout the city. Most are closed on Sunday. A centrally located one that is open 24 hours is Farmacia Argentina (San Lorenzo and BolĂ­var, Tel.: 42-0202).

Rolando has a good stock of analog film and digital camera accessories, as well as film processing (BolĂ­var 1902). Several other camera shops are located on the same street. Servicio TĂ©cnico Carlos Chaplin is a much-recommended camera repair shop (Ayacucho 2346, local 8, Tel.: 37-2029). Camera businesses can recommend others.
