What is it like to live in Argentina?
What is it like to live in Argentina? If I had to sum it up in one sentence, it would be “difficult, but beautiful.” Difficult, because every day is a question: we never know what else can happen. Because it’s like living on a roller coaster, where sometimes it seems like a quiet stretch comes, but deep down you know that at any moment the fall is coming again.
Instability is our only constant. Uncertainty, in these times more than ever. Complaints floating in the air, always, everywhere. We Argentines live in a state of permanent alert. That makes us awake, but how hard it is to relax like this.
It’s hard, yeah. But it’s also beautiful. Because it’s a country full of beautiful things, no matter where you’re in. The landscapes, the colors, the intense life of our cities. The smell of roast, which also floats in the air on Sundays in neighborhoods. The volatility of our economy is countered by something that comes down and grabs us: our people. Our people are strong. It is supportive, always has a smile to offer to those who need it most.
Our way of wanting, of loving, of forging ties is what makes living in Argentina beautiful. The heroes of every day, who never lower their arms. The math, the chatter, the shameless hugs, the laughter. The laughter in spite of everything. Our chaos is full of charm that is impossible to find elsewhere.
Argentina, licenciada en Comunicación Social y correctora. Me apasiona la escritura, la propia y la ajena. Mi amor por las palabras, por las frases mágicas y perfectas, me llevó a dirigir mi carrera profesional hacia la redacción, a lo que luego sumé la corrección para mejorar mis textos y, también, los de otros autores. Porque una imagen no siempre vale más que mil palabras. Gracias por leerme.
