I have lived in other Latin countries and I do not find the Argentines to be the friendliest group I've run across. I hear this particularly from other Latin Americans living or visiting from other countries on the continent. That being said the Argentines that I have had the opportunity to get to know better are pretty much like people you will meet anywhere, but getting to that point in knowing them better can be very difficult. I would say this is true of B.A. but not the rest of Argentina, Argentina is a friendlier place the further you get from the capital.austin said:A recurrent theme here seems to be the relative indifference of the local people. Argentines don't seem to be warm and cheerful like other Latin Americans. Is this your experience? I'd especially like to hear from expats who lived in other Latin American countries.
