8 Things Americans Could Learn from Argentines

8 Things Americans Could Learn from Argentines

FIRST of all, before all of the angry South Americans storm in and start cussing me out for using the term “American”, they should read my post about what i learned in Argentina. I know that calling yourself an “American” is leaving out all of the other countries in North, Central, and South America, and I am normally very cautious and careful to avoid using it. But “8 Things People from the United States of America Could Learn from Argentines” just doesn’t have the same ring to it. ALSO, this is an article written for all my yanquis out there–all those gringos who have already been or haven’t yet been to Argentina. There are a few aspects of their culture that I think we should try harder to adapt to our own. I miss Argentina every day, and wish we could  learn a thing or two from Argentines, and I’m not talking about tango or how to eat empanadas, either…

1. How to be a good friend.

There is something so special about friendship in Argentina. It almost seems as important as family, and for some people, their friends are their family. Friends in Argentina will accompany you to the bank, the dentist, the bookstore, your nephew’s birthday party… it really is incredible. Friendship is so important in Argentina that they even have a National Friend’s Day. Americans probably have one of those too, but it’s probably on par importance-wise with other “holidays” like National Pancake Day or National Hug Day. No one really cares, and no one celebrates it. But in Argentina they take their friends out, they spend time with them, they buy them presents. If you want to know how to be a better friend, go to Argentina and learn from them, because they seem to really have it figured out.

2. How to have a real cookout.

In the States, barbeques or cookouts usually consist of hamburgers, hot dogs, and the occasional slab of ribs or steak. Then you’ve got your deviled eggs, your salad, your fruit, your grilled veggies, and all that other healthy crap. In Argentina your asado, or barbeque, consists of two main things: meat and booze. Meat, meat, and more meat. And fernet. And wine. And sometimes some potatoes smothered in mayo or a salad. Even though you will still be digesting well into the early hours of the morning after eating a good ol’ fashion Argentine barbeque, it’s worth it, I promise.

3. How to party.

I feel like I should get a gold medal, or at least a silver one, every time I stay awake past 3 AM. It boggles my mind the way I was staying up in Argentina, not even leaving the house until 1 AM sometimes. Several times we got home at 9 in the morning, straight out of the party (with a little detour for some snacks). Crazy. And I’m not saying Americans need to adopt that aspect of Argentine culture–but if I hear “ohhh, well uh… I’m kind of already in bed for the night” at 8 PM on a Friday, I’m going to scream (yes, I’m guilty of this, too.) But come on, guys–rally! Get up and go out and have fun. Stop coming home from work and changing directly into your pajamas!

4. How to take advantage of a pretty day.

Every nice day people are out rollerblading, walking their dogs, sleeping in hammocks, trying their luck at slacklining, making out with their significant other on a blanket, riding bikes, drinking mate with friends, and playing soccer in the park. Everyone is out! As soon as it gets warm enough to tolerate it, people are out sunbathing in the parks. The point is that no matter what they’re doing, when the weather is nice–they’re outside enjoying it. Some cities are better than others, but I think for the most part we don’t completely take advantage of beautiful weather here in the States.

5. How to dress.

Ugh, I swear Argentines are like 3 seasons ahead of us here in the States. Everytime I go over, I take note of their latest fashion. Once I return it usually takes a good year for us to start selling the same stuff. And it’s not just the girls who seem to take an interest in fashion and style, the men are equally stylish.

6. How to curse colorfully.

If you’ve ever heard an angry Argentine–or a happy, sad, or even excited one for that matter– you know how colorfully they like to talk. They have some of the most ridiculous curse words and insults that you’ll ever hear. “La recontra mil puta que te parió”, “la concha de la lora”, “andá a cagar”, “pedazo de pelotudo”…  I’m not going to translate those for you, but believe me, they’re uh… colorful.

7. What ‘delivery’ really should mean.

ICE CREAM DELIVERY, GUYS. Ice cream! And also empanadas, chinese, steak, italian, and alcohol. Argentina has got the delivery game on lock. With all of these options, there’s almost no reason to even leave your apartment. (Besides growing too fat to fit in its ridiculouly small 25 square-metered space.)

8. How to live life in the moment.

The news makes it seem like Argentina is constantly on the brink of collapsing economically. And while this may or may not be true (I didn’t get a very good grade in economics in high school), you would never be able to tell by visiting Argentina. People are still out eating pizza with their friends or walking around downtown or going out for a beer. If something similar was going on here, we would probably be going to the grocery stores and buying up all of the powdered milk and bottled water from the shelves and constructing our own bunkers in our basements. But they’re out living for the moment, not overly concerned with the economic future and strength of the Argentine peso. They’re living for the moment..

Argentines? Gringos? What do you guys think–any other things we could learn from each other?

  1. Interesting post 😀 Especially as I am British :)

    • I am from Argentina but I live in the States, funny to mention but good… I went to Europe in April and I found that the British were the most calid and welcoming than the people of the other nine countries that I visited. Many Argentineans have a really bad and wrong concept about you guys.

    • innercompasstravel

      Thanks Danik! I’m sure these things could work for Brits as well :) Have you been to Argentina?

  2. Very nice post. Argentines seem to be awesome people! I’m looking forward to visit their country.

  3. Gracias Mery!!! Hermosas apreciaciones sobre los argentos!!!! Rescatas costumbres que quizás no notamos que son especiales ya que nos acostumbramos. Se los extraña!!! Los quiero! Gaby

    • innercompasstravel

      Gracias por leer, Gaby! Tambien te queremos y esperamos verte pronto!!

  4. Sunday dinner with futbol playing in the radio in the background. Noche buena, kissing your neighbors and friends at midnight. The end of school year, all that torn paper everywhere. The World Cup. Pascuas, and the chocolate eggs. Your extended family
    Just dropping in for a visit, without having to plan it out for months.

    • Best comment, all so true….. I miss being back in Argentina specially for fg et together every single weekend for no reason.. just to spend time as friends and family. Specially the best part was that anyone could join us. I remember having a party in my house so big that 4 blocks full of neighbours were there. Made home made pizza, empanadas, paella, pollo all disco. I miss those days

  5. Gracias por escribir este post, es bueno escuchar cosas agradables de nuestra cultura considerando que somos bastante jodidos, pero de buen corazón. Saludos :)

    • innercompasstravel

      jajaja de nada! la verdad es que me he adoptado un poco de tu cultura porque la amo tanto!

  6. I lived in Buenos Aires for 2 years and I agree with all of these except the clothing! I always found Argentine fashion to be ridiculous. However, ice cream delivery is something I miss EVERY DAY. I also marvel at how I used to leave the house at midnight and come home at 5am. How did I do it?!

    While I agree that Argentines do friendships SO well, one thing I would like to note is that the strength of those bonds sometimes makes people unwilling to make NEW friends. During my time in Argentina I hung out with many locals, but only a couple truly let me into their lives and started doing the things you mentioned – accompanying me to boring appointments, inviting me to family celebrations, etc. One of my local friends actually had an issue because she had somewhat outgrown her childhood friends and they didn’t exactly mesh anymore, but she felt unable to branch out. Obviously, there are plenty of super friendly and open Argentines but the insular attitude is worth mentioning. Maybe you saw it first hand as well?

    • That is extremely true! It feels as though as soon as you nake friends, you are stuck with them for life! In many tines it is a good thibg but in certain situations it can be clicky.

    • innercompasstravel

      Haha the fashion is definitely different. At first I was all, OH MY GOD what are those weird frankenstein shoes ewwww so ugly. And sure enough by the time I left a few months later I loved them. It grew on me somewhat.
      Ice cream delivery. Yes. ‘Nuf said.
      As for the friendships, I never had that experience. It seems like every time I went out to a bar alone or with someone else, I always met someone new who I would continue to hang out with… unlike here where you meet people and make drunken plans to hang out and see them again, even exchange numbers, and nothing ever happens.

    • Hi Rease. It really sounds like you’ve only been in Buenos Aires. Maybe you should try Cordoba next time. 😉

    • I am argentinean and I can totally relate to what you say, Rease. Sure, you’ll meet tons of friendly people while out and about and even hang out with them later but, getting into their inner circle is completely different. I moved around a lot while I was young so by the time I finished highschool I didn’t really have those childhood friends most people have. I’ve made friends through work and college but their childhood friends somehow seem to take the top spot on their list no matter what. Still though, compared to people I met while living in the US, we are definitely more um… “candid”?
      I still find it kind of funny how you guys are so hung up on the whole ice cream delivery thing lol

    • I’m an Argentine myself and have to agree with Rease. My countrymen are very friendly when hanging out with their inner circle but when taken out of their comfort zone they can be quite aloof. I have seen this many times and I was born and bred here. It’s not so easy to break into their circles. In my experience, Americans are more friendly when meeting new people. When in the US I was surprised at how easily Americans strike conversations with anyone.. Even complete strangers in the street!! I rarely see that here.

  7. I’m from Argentina, I’m living here and I find this post so incredible. I mean, those things are so common for us that we don’t even appreciate it. It’s something that comes with argentinians haha.
    Really impressed about this, and very glad of reading comments and find out that foreign people really see the good things!

    • innercompasstravel

      Thank you, Franco! I lived there for quite a while and pretty much only hung out with Argentines, so I think I was able to observe a lot from them. I learned so much and love your culture! (I just had an Argentine-themed birthday party :P)

  8. I haven’t been to Argentina yet, but it’s on my bucket list. I do have a few friends that are from Argentina and they are the best people.

  9. Hi! I’m 16 and I’m from Argentina. I loved your post! Thanks for saying all these incredible things about my country :) Now I’m doing an exchange program for a year in the US and sometimes a miss this little details that you mentioned here. Despite I felt homesick a couple of times, I have to say that your country is also truly amazing. I hope that at the end of the year I’m able to write something similar but for argentines to learn about americans.

    • innercompasstravel

      Lula, I am so glad to hear that you have enjoyed your time here! What are some of the things that have caught your attention about the States? If you do end up writing something like that, I would love to read it!! Everyone gets homesick, but I hope that you have managed to make some good friends here. Have fun!!

  10. I can’t believe that you don’t have ice cream delivery!! I’m from Argentina but I never get enough of it! About the Frankestein shoes…. it’s true, they are wierd but so stylish!
    And friendship, it’s all for us. My friends are truly my extended family, we used to have christmas or other holidays together, I lived in new zealand for one year, and – tough they are amazing people – I missed my friends more than ever, the little common things we used to do together, it’s not that common in other countries…. something to consider and to appreciatte…….

    • innercompasstravel

      It’s funny how sometimes it takes an outsider to remind you of special things that your culture might have that you don’t even realize!

  11. I absolutely loved this post!! Although I’m 31 and I don’t go out until 9am anymore, I do remember those good old days: leaving your house at 1am, dancing and drinking until 7am and going to McDonalds afterwards. *sigh*
    I think you missed how close we are to our family. There isn’t one Sunday you don’t get together with your parents, siblings, aunts, uncles, cousins, grandparents, and eat pasta (ravioles!!!). I remember having to go to my grandparents’ house to eat with an awful hangover :,)
    Oh FYI, I just ordered helado… 1 kilo of chocolate with almonds, strawberry cream and dulce de leche 😉
    Hope you come back soon!!!!

    • innercompasstravel

      Hahah thanks for reading, Ceci! I’m pretending that I’m eating that ice cream right now… maracuya y dulce de leche granizado mmmmm

  12. I truly miss my culture and my people.

  13. Nice post! Creo que si los Americanos tambien tuviesen estas cualidades serian perfectos!!
    Yo vivo parte en LA y parte en Buenos Aires y realmente cuando estoy en Los Angeles extraño muy poco! I love everything about USA!

  14. Not only the americans but the world should “learn” from argentinians 😉

  15. I am an Argentinean living in Switzerland for almost 4 years now.
    I really felt identified with this post, but just change the word “Americans” for “Swiss” and then duplicate its strength. Meaning, he Swiss are very cold and distant in general in terms of friendship. Of course there are exceptions, but in general they do have a lot of boundaries delimited that won’t allow you to pass. For example, if you would pass by a classic Swiss house just because you were on the neighbourhood, even if you called him some minutes before, this would be perceived as rude.

    The only other country in Europe until now that has the same sense of friendship, family and easiness as us Argentineans, are the Italians. And I am really greatefull to have found some great, great friends.

    Don’t get me wrong, Switzerland is very nice, it works, people respect each other and the system and that is the reason why it works. Coming from a third world country with multiple economical and security issues, believe me it’s shocking. But so it is around Europe too.

    I read a comment about the British, and I must say I love them, they are really good people and very polite. I went to the last Rugby World Cup to watch some games where Argentina was playing, and I must say I felt ashamed of all the Argentineans singing “the one who doesn’t jump is British” in reference to the last Malvinas-Falklands war. Come on, we are way better than that.

    Thanks for the post again, on the meantime I am teaching my friends here what a good asado with “Tira” is ?


    • I’m Argentine and I don’t find Americans cold and distant in the slightest. Actually, I find them friendlier than my own countrymen, at least when interacting with strangers. Argentines are very friendly when in their comfort zone (when they are with childhood friends, relatives, etc) but when meeting new people they can be quite reserved.. At least that’s my experience.

  16. Gastón Cortez

    Hi! I’m argentinian, and I really feel so glad for readin this. It’s kind of amaizing not hearing things like we are aborigins that live in houses made of mud or things like that. I really hope that this article impulse people to come to Argentina, I think that every person in this country will me glad to recive an other person, doesnot matters the nacionality :)

    • innercompasstravel

      Thanks for reading Gaston! I also hope this article inspires people to travel to Argentina, it’s such a beautiful country.

  17. thank you all!
    Loved all your comments about us!
    And I pretty much agree about everything you wrote here !
    I m also grateful you took the time to write about us from such a positive perspective .
    The best for all of you !

  18. Hi! I’m from Argentina but living in Puerto Rico for 13 years. My wife is Puerto Rican and she totally adopted #6. I miss # 1, 2 and 7 and while in Argentina I enjoyed #4, but here in PR as in the States you need a car to go anywhere! It’s very interesting because you mentioned almost everything I miss from my country. But I’m really grateful to PR and the US because I feel so good here. Thanks for sharing your experience!

  19. I am an Argentinian and I came to California some 47 years ago…and I miss my friends….most of them are gone since I came young and I didn’t grew up with them. Here in the states we didn’t have family and slowly we started to ghater friend from Argentina…we have some 15 other couples and all of them are our extended family…we see each other as brothers or sisters and we BBQ our asados in our grills…we play argeee music and we argue about argee politics and futbol that game you erroneously call soccer…I miss the all night parties and the fresh bread in the morning…

    • innercompasstravel

      I’m glad you were able to find a great group of friends that could become like your family, Luis! I’m sure those asados are delicious!

  20. Flaca sos una genia. Te quiero! Ademas gracias por no escribir “argentinians”

  21. Hi! I am Argentinian from Cordoba, but I am currently in the US on an academic exchange program. Loved this post and the previous one, you really made me feel identified and I miss all of the things you mentioned! Particularly friends, partying and fernet, and asados. I am planning to write something like this when I go back home, we also have several things to learn from you!

    • innercompasstravel

      Hey Javier, I’m so glad you liked the articles :) thanks for reading, let me know if you write something–I’d love to read it!

  22. You got it right, boss! We are an Argentine-American family and one thing Argentine people could learn from gringos is volunteering. My kids have learned to help others since school and we Argentine parents have picked it up too. It makes you more involved with the school, church, government, club or party of your choice–something that is not really common in Argentina.

  23. Los amigos en Argentina se juntan casi sin armar un plan. Una charla por telefono de mas de 5 minutos termina siendo una charla con un cafe de por medio.
    Juntarse con la familia tambien es un gran ritual tipico argentino.
    Con las mismas palabras, solamente cambiando el tono, la palabra puede ser un elogio o un insulto. Gesticulamos muchísimo al hablar y definitivamente hablamos a los gritos, como eternos adolescentes

  24. Teresa Boehm

    What an AWESOME and well summed post!!! I loved and agreed with all 8 things, and I also miss Argentina EVERY single day!!! Thank you for those refreshing words, and reminding me of only 9 among many other things that I REALLY appreciate about that country and its culture.

  25. It’s funny to find somebody that thinks like you! I’m from
    States , but I’ve lived lots of years in argentina and my family is from over there and even though I love a lot of things from “americans” , the should learn at least one of these tips ! Nobody understands it until you feel and live it! And by the way vamos argentina la puta que lo pario!! great post!!

  26. I am an argentinian and my brother is the best curse-inventor of all times. We are always waiting that he gets angry so that we can hear all his curses!!

    For the foreginers, here there is one of the best curse-makers! El Tano Pasman!

  27. I’m curious: how long did you stay and what cities did you visit? Thanks!

  28. Hi awesome post! I live in the states too and I miss my friends from childhood , early teens too and family. One more point and I think the most important about us, we kiss in the cheek and we hug (one kiss) no matter if you are a men or women, kid or old person, handshakes won’t work with us :/ too cold :)

  29. Leí este articulo y me sorprendí al pensar que en Estados Unidos no tienen las cosas que acá en Argentina hacemos prácticamente todos los días. Me gusto mucho!! Sigan así!!!

  30. Yassssss! I’m a Spanish teacher basically because of this glorious place & these fantastic folk who are so adept in the three most important areas of life: friends, fiestas…& food. Can we just pour dulce de leche over everything pahleaseeee?
    Thanks so much for writing such an excellent piece! Definitely sharing this article with my students and praying that they don’t look up the words…ha…or I might need to edit and make it into a worksheet with some questions in Spanish to check for understanding, is that cool??

  31. It´s so true evertything, I live in Spain and I miss my country and friends so much!! Far away from home you start to value the things that used to be normal, and realise is something great!

  32. You know that Argentina belongs to America and that America is a CONTINENT not a country? Why you keep calling yourselfs AMERICANS, arent we americans?

    • The reason really is quite simple. We claimed the name first. The United States was the first independent country in the Americas, (1776), Haiti was the second in 1804, 28 years later. We named our country first and therefore dibsed the American moniker.

      • There’s another possible reason:
        The full name of Mexico is United States of Mexico, Brazil name is also United States of Brazil, therefore you call them Mexico, Brazil or their people is called Mexican, Brazilian. That’s why I think is totally correct to say America in reference to United States of America and so their citizens being called Americans 😉

  33. Santiago Agustin

    dude… you forgot we even have a condom delivery service huehuehue, and Argentinian asados are more than meat, booze and salad, the main point of the asado is spending time with your friends!! anyway be sure to come back to Argie, byee =D

  34. You are completely right! I do agree with us Argentines being friendly and that if you hadn’t been in Argentina you really don’t know what is to REALLY go on partying.
    It’s a really interesting point and I’m really happy to see your point of view of us, Argentines. Most people don’t see us as friendly or warm people.

    P/d: your forgot to mention our delicious dulce de leche, alfajores. Haha!

  35. Axel Tabares Mendez

    Thanks man, I’m from Argentina and this makes me really happy, we are not having our greatest time but is nice to see things like this, I hope you are having a nice day. Feel free to come to my house if sometime in the future you come to Córdoba, “Te mando un abrazo”

  36. Aldana Sanchez

    I am from Argentina and for the last 3 summers I’ve been visiting my birth place my beautiful city Rosario and visiting many family members in Buenos Aires too. I definitely agree with all 8 above! It’s so so true they always complain about not having enough money but every weekend especially on Saturdays and Sunday’s we have delicious barbecues and we go out dancing until the morning, going out eating pizza and drinking Fernet… Great great memories. Hate that the distance is terrible! I love my country and even though I grew up all my life in Las Vegas I will never ever forget my beloved ARGENTINA❤️❤️❤️??

  37. This was such a great article! I have just moved to the country 3 days ago and already feel like I’m never going to leave!
    I’m a born and raised Austinite and believe my new city of Mar Del Plata is a lot like Austin so far.
    I’m extremely lucky to have my boyfriend from this city so I have the best guide, built in family and a friends network already.
    The food has been out of this world! Almost to the point of tears because I had no idea what I was missing all my life! Mark my words, I’m never leaving “the happy city!”.

    • innercompasstravel

      Thanks for reading Kinsey! As I type this I am so jealous that you’re over there! It truly is an amazing country that sweeps you up and makes you fall in love.. I miss it everyday. Hopefully one day we will be able to move back. Thanks for reading!

  38. Im from Buenos Aires ,but I live in NYC,Im so happy to see this posts..
    I have a lot of friends in 2 years than in my country.
    I love U.S.A. too

  39. A este artículo lo escribió un argentino, seguro !

    • innercompasstravel

      somos argentinos de corazon seguro! 😛 gracias por leer Maria!

  40. I’m from Argentina and I would definitely add another title; “8 things Argentines should learn from Argentines” haha. Thank you for sharing :)

  41. Thank u for appreciating our culture with so much passion, we should do so as well. I love American (US) culture too, I think we should learn from the respect you have towards others, the fact that u know your boundaries, respect the law and have a sense of not doing what may bother somebody else. I enjoy every second I spend there and wish we could behave better.
    I love spending holidays there too, I love your fatty food (20 more pounds for every vacation)
    The Argentineans that emigrate sometimes forget about their own traditions and become strangers… Those are the ones that people from around the world don’t like that much; selfish, “truchos”, cheaters by nature.
    The economic situation has raised the number of thieves but people should not be afraid, come to Argentina! Fun is guaranteed!!

  42. hermoso el post pero esa mesa llena de tápers y lechuga vieja bai

  43. Great post, I lived in Toronto, Canada for 18 years, but for those 8 reason and many more is that with my husband we decide to come back to Mendoza, ” The city of the sun and the qreat wine ” u should come to visit, beautiful city, Now, after 9 years living here, we still get amazed when we see families at 2 am on a wednesday on summer time at the park, when u know that the adults have to work next day, they don’t care. We love this, it’s true, people tells that u have to be careful, for your safety and all that, , but I think that if u get lose in Detroit, u have to be carefull too. Thanks for showing to the world who we are… SALUDOS ARGENTINOS !!! NO MATTER WERE IN THE WORLD U ARE !!!

    • innercompasstravel

      Thanks for reading Alejandra :) I’ve only passed through Mendoza on my way to Santiago from Buenos Aires, but I would love to spend more time there. All the mendocinos I’ve met have been so nice and friendly–and I’d love to taste the wine! Un abrazo!

  44. I am a Greek. I have been to Argentina a dozen times. Your article is very precise. It hits the nail on the head each time. Here is a funny situation your readers may enjoy: When Argentina had its economic crisis, all those who had relatives in Greece came to settle here. Now that Greece is going through difficult times, all those Argentines who lived here, are returning to Argentina.

  45. Fascinating post! Reading your well-written post, it’s nice to know that people of Argentina are so welcoming and chilled-out. They live their life so coolly. Thanks for sharing such a lovely post depicting the beautiful nature of people.

  46. caracolcita42

    Yup. Ice cream delivery. U.S. fail there. I think I would add to this list economic literacy, because I have never met a group of a people so aware and attuned to the ups and downs of world finances just in daily conversation. There’s a very good reason for that, and U.S. folks could learn from it.

  47. Oh God i love Argentina especially their tasty wine and telenovelas :)))))) hablo español bien pero creo que en Argentina tendré que estudiar otra vez más…por favor podría decirme donde visitar en Argentina que partes son notables y que hacer para estar seguro/a que nadie te roba la cartera o el bolso…y diga por favor cual es el recurso principal de industria en Argentina? Is life expensive there? How much is studying there in university? I would like to visit so i need to know a lot about the country thanks for posting this article!!!

    • innercompasstravel

      Hey Maneh! Sorry for the late reply, thanks for reading! If you already speak Spanish, that’s great, but Spanish in Argentina is very different! It takes a little getting used to, but it shouldn’t be too much of a problem. I would recommend going to Bariloche, Cordoba, Mendoza, Salta, and of course Buenos Aires–but I would recommend living in either Cordoba or Buenos Aires. As far as safety goes, the biggest tip I can give is not to carry any ipods, iphones, or laptops with you if you can help it. If you must carry those items with you, make sure they are out of sight. Don’t ever pull out your iphone on the street! I’ve had friends who had them stolen out of their pockets while listening to music, and only realized they were gone when the music stopped playing. Wear a purse that goes across your chest and closes with a zipper–anything to make the potential thief’s life more difficult. Mostly they are crimes of opportunity, so don’t give them one! I never had a problem *knock on wood* and hopefully you won’t either–it’s a beautiful place. Life can be a little expensive, but if you have a nice job you will find it pretty affordable. School is extremely affordable.. I think foreigners only have to pay a small tuition. I know for a Masters in the public university of Buenos Aires it was only going to be around 800 or 900 dollars a year for a Masters. Good luck, Maneh! I hope you can visit soon :)
