EliA said:I would take a closer look at what you consider laziness. In the states we have the "I live to work" mentality while here it's more "I work to live," and frankly I much prefer the latter. Taking time to enjoy life is absolutely a virtue, as it should be in any culture. If that means relaxing in a park or spending a long afternoon drinking mate and eating facturas and generally enjoying one's friends and family and the blessing of free time... que hay de mal??
