Another newcomer to Buenos Aires

#1
My name is Daniela (or Danni) and I have just arrived in Buenos Aires to work as a primary English teacher at an international school in Olivos. I am originally from Scotland and previously worked in London (my parents are Italian, hence the name). I thought I could get by with the Spanish I learnt at school, but after a few days I realise my knowledge is quite pathetic. Practically all my work colleagues are porteños so I would really love to meet up with some fellow ex-pats - I don't know a great deal about Buenos Aires but I am looking forward to exploring the city, especially since so many of you have stated that you have fallen in love with the place. Look forward to hearing from you or meeting you soon.
