So de Santoto?

Sao Tome is a small town just separated from Santa Fe by a bridge. There is so much closeness that we gave him a affectionate nickname: Santoto.

How we talk

“ Tonight I'm going to have a drink at Santoto”, “in Santoto remains my girlfriend'shouse”, “we meet with the children of Santoto”. Phrases that are heard daily in Santa Fe. Sao Tome is so but so attached to the provincial capital that I havetreated with affection.

Many things unite Sao Tome with Santa Fe. An easy reading would say that the first depends on the second. As it is smaller, logically, the possibilities of work and study are much less and, day by day, there are thousands of Santotomesinos crossing the Puente Carretero, over the Salado River. to go to work or study in Santa Fe.

But, in recent years, there are also many Santafesinos who decided to live on the other side of the pond. Santoto still offers more possibilities than its neighboring city to build a home or even to rent. Costs are lower.

Santoto is cute. It has a beach, a nice coastal promenade and that tranquility of village that in Santa Fe doesn't look so much anymore. As often happens with villages, a route national runs through it, right through the middle. It is the 11th, born in Rosario and ends on the border with Paraguay. In Santoto becomes Avenue 7 de Marzo, main artery.

Like Santa Fe and so many other Argentine cities, São Tomé has its negative side in an important peripheral cord of villas, where humble people do not have a good time and crime and drugs wreak havoc.

There is no distance between Santoto and Santa Fe to find distinctive features that differentiate those of one city and those of the other. But there is a clear identity . Hold on, Santoto ! , they'll tell you when you discover one coming from the other side of the puddle.
