I am traveling there in a few weeks, and I'd love to be able to use Uber there.  However, I heard that Uber has been kicked out of Argentina after big uproar by the existing taxi companies as well as law makers.  Are they gone?

    What?  Did Buenos Aires try to have the credit card and cell phone companies try to block Uber?

    "The ride-hailing company was told to stop business in Buenos Aires in April. Local credit card and telecommunications companies were ordered to block Uber, but the ride-sharing service continued to operate in the city."
