Personal contact between Argentine people is an everyday occurrence. Walking arm in arm is a tradition among old friends and family almost as old as our ancestors. Hugging each other and kissing on the cheeks to say hello (even among men) are kind habits that define us with the extroverted personality we have.
We could attribute our sparkling, energetic and friendly touch to the incredible diversity of cultures living together in Argentina. We have an open mind for ideals and a huge heart with plenty of room available for anyone who wants to join our table to chat and have fun. And if you need help, don’t be shy, any Argentine would be happy to guide you! That’s how we are, we love to feel at home and that others feel the same way when coming to Argentina.
We are so chatty that we could even bet you that in a 20-minute quick class with an Argentinean you will become an expert in Dulce de Leche, alfajores and asados. But if you want to talk about soccer, that could take a little longer… because we would surely take you to see the stadium of our favorite team so that you can feel our passion in first person.
We are fanatics of strong feelings: We are intense, we love deeply, we laugh without embarrassment but always together. We are not afraid to make a fool of ourselves sometimes if that brings a smile to everyone else’s face. The essence of proximity is inside us: We enjoy holding hands like a couple of Tango does when they start dancing closely; we caress the other people special to us as if we were not going to see them anymore.
