Buenos Aires

I heard back from the apartment rental folks in Buenos Aires, who confirmed my reservation for this apartment:

It seems very centrally located, and - as far as I can judge* - is about 8 to 10 blocks from the school.

As it gets closer to my departure date, I'm hitting my Spanish books again, and am getting excited about the trip.

*: An oddity of google maps is a complete lack of the street overlay option for Buenos Aires, and for cities throughout Argentina, as far as I can ascertain. Whatever subvariation of Murphy's Law that governs maps naturally ensures that the location of the school vanishes into the fold of the book in my Fodor's guide, which makes it a little hard to figure things out exactly.
