I am a recent grad of Cal Poly San Luis Obispo, lived in Santiago for a while in college, but totally fell in love with BA...so I am moving back in September to live, love, and learn. My plan is to stay a while and really settle in, but I don't know a soul so I am hoping to get plugged into the expat community pretty quick and also meet some locals. Any advice on finding apartments or other common newcomer mistakes would be greatly appreciated. Can't wait...

Welcome newcomers! I´d be glad to assist in your transition by clarifying any doubts. Being half-expat and half-local, I guess I can see things from both sides at once. Zestie, there are periodic expat gatherings and dinners, have you come already? I´m trying to confirm a tentative dinner for this Fri Aug 11. Send me a note if you would like to attend. Cheers, Joe
