heading your way! 1 month visit in feb.

my plan is to arrive in BsAs JAN 26, and spend the next few days finding a furnished apartment for the month of February, ive looked thru craiglist a few dozen times and find great looking places but wonder if most of the listings found there are all agency, or private owners. i realize i may save almost 20% by renting directly from owners...

last time i was in BA, the palermo are attracted me. this is where i have focused my search. is it still the vibrant, youthful area of town?

any thoughts or suggestions.

thank you,
