Buenos Aires - - Saturday 15 De May

Home People As we are The line of the Bondi.

The line of the Bondi.

We are all tired, in a hurry and want to sit down; however, at every stop there is a line for the bondi.

As we are
fila de colectivo

A good way to get to know each other is to pay attention to the eyes of others. The image we project on others is a clear reflection of our own essence, of those things we do not notice, but define us. A small  fact , many times, can contradict our idea of ourselves.

We Argentines have a rather harsh vision of us as a society. In general, in everyday life, we consider ourselves disrespectful and selfish. However, there is an everyday fact that for us is natural, but many foreigners find significant when visiting our country: we always respect  the line of the   collective   . 

We are all tired, in a hurry and eager to find a free seat; however, at each stop a line is formed as passengers arrive, who climb in the same order when the  transport is up. Moreover, if any  colado appears, it is exposed in front of everyone to the cry of “there is a row back here!”.

It seems natural to us, but apparently it is not so natural, because it does not happen in the same way in all countries. A little detail that paints us as we are: not as disrespectful as we think, not as selfish as we think, a little more ordered than we expected. After all, it seems that there is still  hope .
