    Swimming pools/indoors&outdoors

    The GEBA / Jorge Newberry club has a beautiful 50 meter pool. I used to swim there when I arrived here and was living in that area. They also have 6 outdoor clay tennis courts. I now live in the south side of the city and it’s no longer practical for me to go there.

    Shipping a small electronic device

    You'll want to avoid the local postal service if possible. Specially when importing something from the US or EU. Try the local Mercado Libre site. It's the eBay equivalent in Argentina. They have lots of models there.
