Hello! I am going to be a Foreign Exchange Student next year, and my first country of choice was Argentina. Please tell me, before you went for the first time, did you know very much Spanish? If not, did you have much trouble communicating with the people there? Also, what is the living standard majority there? I am from the US. Does it compare to the United States?

Come to the north part!
Im argentine, so sory for my poor english level. If you come to Argentina, go to the north, cities like Salta or Tucuman, the landscape here are full of mountains and jungle, convined with large cities, plus the people here are realy kind. In fact, Buenos Aires people are hated bi the rest of the people here, because they are so selfish, when they visit the north in the summer vacations, the city becomes a "trash can" becouse they are dirty people. The hospitality of people in north is the best part of us.

really liked your thoughts
hey please let me update the link of the song libertango, since it\'s no longer available on youtube, this one is an electronic and a bit jazzy fusion with tango, and with great performances http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OYo1GDPu5s4 hope you people enjoy it. Greetings from Salta, Argentina ;)

Seriously man, i dont know what are you talking about, or where have you met all these"warm" people??? I my self, have visited both the North-American countries an almost all the Southern and Center-American countries, and i have to disagree with your opinion. I find Argentinian people reserved and especially the B.A "porteños" people cold and very often arrogant and for me it is way easier to socialize with North-Americans or people like Colombians or Chileans, and i honestly cannot flag to your opinion. Greetings form Scandinavia.

Hey Mercedes
Hi Mecedes, I assume that is your name...thanks for the comment. I have not accessed the site for a long time. Yeah, I love Argentina a lot, for me it is a wonderful place, in its own ways. I especially love the people I have met, they have always been very kind to me. Hope we can chat more some time. Take care. Eric

wow! it's wonderful to read someone write such lovely things about Argentina, and even to read how acerted you are about the negative parts. Now wonder why you feel so warm here, I'd hug any foreign person who talks which such respect towards our culture. I've heard some nasty thoughts about people from Buenos Aires though, I've been told we are kind of arrogant! Maybe that's also true haha. I've always wanted to visit Canada! Hope I do someday! I also hope you never cease feeling welcomed here :)

Porteño Forever!
I love your article. As a porteño i feel im a citizen of the world. I really like the fact that people from Buenos Aires is open minded, peacefull and funny. I also admire a lot of civic consciousness of canadian people. I was born in Belgrano and i live my youth thru the 80s and 90s in Argentina. Lovely Period! Hope you come back to visit us Andres

Hey Eric I really liked to read this opinion, was very ,very interested, it's nice to know your point of view. I like to read ,that you love my country jeje :) , and I thaught "oh god" we are losing a lot of things, our culture it's changing everyday , and like you said, luckily there's people " consciousness" , cuz we have to keep all the best of our culture , cuz if we lose it , Argentina wont be the same. However we have to develop, but with out lose the most important thing, our custumes. So keep coming to Argentina, you are always welcome , and dont forget Cordoba je.. Chao chao ..

VERY INTERESTING!!!
I've read your blog about my country and I found it very clever. You have a strong ability for observation, which is, I'm afraid, something that's getting rare nowadays. I have to confess that, reading the first lines, when you mentioned Canada as an opposite to Argentina my first thought was "let's go there, I can´t stand any more of this...". But, maybe social life is very important to me to leave my own nest behind. Enjoy your 5th. stay in Argentina and come back again. Daniel

Looking at Buenes Aires
Noted your comments with interest. My wife & I are looking at a holiday & Buenes Aires is on our list.Everyone that I speak to love BA but I still dont have a sense about how we would spend 2-3 weeks. We enjoy visiting cities/countries to reach out to local restaurants/neighborhoods etc including out of the way towns. Can yo provide me some more info on what a visit to Argentina and specifically BA might entail. ( We are from Edmonton )

comments omn pics
Hi Eric, Immediately looked at your pics. It sure as hell is the Royal Palace. Amsterdams Prime Pride! "I think its the royal palace but i have to verify'.... my goodness! Anyway.. it is the RP.. and just been refurbished for millions of euros to house the royals and their guests on special occasions. Taxpayers money of course.. but worth it, both family and Palace. Now the are discussing to clean the outisde of the palace...more euros and the risk of it becoming 'too blond' = too light of coulor)...

Eric, don't forget, Amsterdam=Red Light district! Also, check out some of the cool museums that they have got - Van Gogh, Heineken etc
