USA Tax question: American Expat beginning investor

How do taxes work on investments in mutual funds? I am a novice at investing. American citizen working overseas and building a portfolio finally. I've established my emergency savings and am heading into taxable investments. Unfortunately, I am unable to contribute to my Roth IRA or contribute to a traditional IRA while claiming FEIE (Foreign Earned Income Exemption) with the IRS. I'm looking into investing in Vanguard's VWINX fund. How would US taxes work on these investments?

US Tax Law Change for Americans Living Abroad

As a US citizen, living and working abroad for many years, I recently heard of a new law that I must file tax returns on the US by Aug 31, 2011 or face a penalty. Anyone know about this? If US citizens live and pay taxes abroad, they generally are exempt up to $91,500.

Where to move for 2 months?

I'm considering going abroad to study for the bar exam during June and July. I'd like to go somewhere interesting, fun, and also relatively inexpensive. Two places I'm considering are Berlin and Buenos Aires. Assuming I rent an apartment for two months (probably shared), and live a decent but non-extravagant student's lifestyle (I'll be studying during the days, but will still have nights and weekends free to explore and have some fun), how much can I expect to spend per month in each city? Any other suggestions for inexpensive but fun cities?
