A list of Tucumanidad

Florencia Larrea is a Tucuman journalist who published a creative disclaimer on her social networks. Tucucumanity on the stick!

As we are

There is a maxim among Tucuman and that is that we should never pronounce the phrase “casita de Tucumán” to refer to our greatest symbol: that House that became historic and far from being a “little house”. It's just that words play with the symbolic and the representative, so whenever a tourist comes and names it as a “little house”, we correct it.

10- The sculpture of the pedestrian I don't have the palest idea what the hell it is.

11- In the north it eats in abundance, as long as they leave us, do not be frightened.

12- We speak loudly, we do not scream.

13- We say CULIAO for everything, as a greeting, an expression of affection or anger.

14- CHUY and TUY are not meaningless onomatopoeia. Chuy means cold; you, hot, and always come accompanied by the word crap.

15- If they call you, “Crap!” , we've already adopted you.

16- We talk quickly and inside, if you don't understand what we say I asked for the repetition.

17- Don't leave Tucumán without eating a
