A list about the tucumanity

Florencia Larrea is a Tucumana journalist who posted a creative download on her social media. Tucumanity to the stick!

As we are

There is a maxim among the Tucumans and is that we must never pronounce the phrase  “casita de Tucumán”  to refer to our greatest symbol:  that House that became historical  and far from being a “casita”. It is that words play with the symbolic and the representative, so whenever a tourist comes and names it as “casita”, we correct it. That's what we call fighting and military our  tumumanity .

Journalist Florencia Larrea decided to list those 20 things tourists should learn from their visit to  our province .

 The list 

1- It is not a house of Tucumán, it is  Casa Histórica .

2- It is not  gaucho costume, it is typical clothing.

3- It is not empanada de humita, it will be in any case  empanada  de choclo, humita is another meal.

4- If you come to Tucumán, eat empanadas seriously, ham and cheese and vegetarian ones ARE NOT EMPANADAS!

5- It is not a colación, it is northern  alfajor  .

6- They are not masitas, they are cane or  dulce de leche tablets.

7- It is alfeñique or, failing it, alfeñiqui (in basic tucumano), it is not caramelito tucumano.

8- It's not pancake with sausages, it's  panchuque .

9- The guy who runs the traffic is not something new or eccentric, it is a traffic agent, a worker.

10- The sculpture of the pedestrian I HAVE NOT EVEN THE PALLIEST IDEA WHAT THE FUCK IT IS.

11- In the north it is eaten abundantly, as long as they leave us, do not be afraid.

12-  We speak  loudly, we don't shout.

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

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

15- If they tell you, “Shit!”We've adopted you.

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

17- Do not leave Tucumán without eating a  milanese sángche  in one of the many specialized locals (case, you will never forget about that experience), a bun, sweet potato and cayote dumplings and wild locro or Well pulsud.

18- Don't you dare criticize us the Gladys, the  Black Sosa  is the big thing.

19- If a Tucumano invites you to his house and offers you food, accept it, it is our way of showing affection, you have no idea what he was able to do to make you feel comfortable.


 What we call tucumanity 

So, and in a few lines, you can summarize a bit of our small, but historical  , province,  of which we are very proud and waiting for visits. We believe that knowing her involves these issues and so many others you'll be surprised about. This is what we call  tucumanity .

 We suggest you continue reading the following notes:
