    My Argentinian wife really dislikes the US. Typical of Argentinians?

    I notice that Argentines seem to look at the less fortunate with a “there but by the grace of God go I” attitude where as in the US we seem to think “anyone can succeed. Why don’t you get a job” American Dream attitude.

    I hate the bikes

    If it is possible to use a yellow bike for a while (BAbici) then do that and try it out. On bike lanes and paths people do not announce when passing or an other niceties you may have become accustomed to cycling elsewhere. I always find joy being on the bike. You just have to ride super heads up...

    Should I ride a bike in BA?

    I rode from Belgrano to Palermo for a Spanish class last year. About 8km. It was graat. Could get a little intense out of the bike lanes but overall a great experience. Anytime the weather was bad or I was feeling lazy I took the bus. The travel time was about the same.

    I teach drums but I’m in Tigre so I stick to Zona Norte. Let me ask a friend and drum teacher who lives in Palermo if he has space available. In Spanish is ok? He only speaks a little English.

    Using Uber Or Taxiezeiza From Airport?

    You might have trouble finding one Uber to hold 8 people. You can reserve a van online that can hold you all or as Ceviche said hire a remise from one of the counters at the airport. We use Uber a lot in BA. Pretty much as often as a taxi. I have found prices for Uber equal to or less than taxi...

    Fbi Background Check

    I just had mine done here in the US and apostilled. I used National Background Check, Inc. to facilitate the background check. I used One Source Processing to handle the apostille. NBC can do both but OSP was cheaper. Either will ship internationally.

We had fun a few years ago mapping out these routes around CABA. it's really set up for commuting but we never found a station completely...
