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??

But really, cricri, where were you trying to go with this? Just stirring the pot or what?

I am aware I sound a bit provocative, but I think that my viewpoint might trigger interesting debates.. I agree with all of you that" Taking time to enjoy life is absolutely a virtue" Bs As "time elasticity" is sometimes great
