I made this video a few weeks ago during my last stay in Argentina. I thought it would be fun to try a vlog style video & answer the #1 question that people ALWAYS ask me.
Everyone wants to know which country I prefer: the USA or Argentina?
The truth is, there are so many things I love about both countries. Each one has different things to offer, and it's impossible for me to choose.
If you're reading this and you don't know much about me, here's my story...
My parents immigrated to the USA from Argentina before I was born. When I was 22, I went to Argentina to study Spanish and ended up meeting my husband. Ever since, I've spent several years in Argentina...I said 5 years in the video, but later I realized it's been 6! Also, right now we are in the USA doing the paperwork to get Renzo's greencard... so we aren't in Argentina.
Anyhow, I hope this video helps you get to know me more. I also hope that it helps you see that every country has something wonderful to offer, as well as things we wish we could change.
No country is better than any other... they are simply all different. And at the end of the day... we are all the same... we grow up in different cultures, but we are all HUMAN.

Buenos Aires, my favourite city in the Southern Hemisphere, I wish they could figure out the economic and financial issues that have plagued this resource rich country for over 60 years. Mate is shared with the same straw because the straw is sterling silver which is antibacterial.

Thank you so much, Miss Stefanie I like to practice your English videos and write all the new vocabulary used for you in your conversations about your recommendation to lean the English language. I would like to hear from you again in other videos to share with us and practice the English. I usually study your videos and how you explain new situations that occur in a real-life from you and your family that is great and amazing listening to all your conversations. Go ahead and God bless you and your family. Bye. Bye.

No manejo en Argentina por que aca se parece un poco a como manejan en la India, tocan bocina por todo, no ceden el paso al peaton, te tiran el coche encima para que cruses corriendo ... nadie maneja bien en Argentina. Si alguien para en su esquina y espera que cruze un peaton , todos van a tocan bocina y van a ponerse muy agresivos. Eso no existe en California alla mientras mejor trates a los peatones es mejor, si tiras el coche muy adelante quizas te toquen bocina por que estas impidiendo el paso al peaton o quizas te pongan una multa autoimaticamente por las camaras.

Great video. Yeah , we are very close when comes to greeting someone. A kiss, a hug. The food yeah,we eat a lot of meat. I personally dont like mate (im from Argentina) but im sure u know, is a little bit hard being a foreign in Argentina, ppl usually wants to take advantages of that, hope u dont get that treat.

*| Adventurous* Nice diplomatic way of saying theres a lot of morons in the road here haha. Overall I think law is not awfully respected. And yes, theres no automatics here, besides perhaps one or two exceptions. In 24 years, I never saw one (not that I can check that on a car passing by but still). That said yes, we have about 30% more car fatalities than the US About public transport... yes its very present (Except for the metro which is only in buenos aires). However the quality of the buses...its definitely lackin. I live in a major touristic place and I have waited one or two times nearly two hours. I tend to wait like 45 minutes minimum pretty much always. And you dont use that much public transportaiton I guess because both cars and fuel is cheaper for you, as well as bigger distances (less centralization) and you get your license at 16. That said, I think public transportation should be a thing everywhere (less traaffic, usually cheaper, less pollution, etc) About the "warm" greeting, yes. Fun fact, according to the washington post (well a studio featured in there, but I dont know how scientifically relevant it is) says that Argentina is the country with the least personal space haha About the mate depends hugely on the person. Usually I always saw people at least clean the straw (that said I dont like mate, so i dont have a big mate culture)

You would love Colombia and Venezuela. Obviously the culture is different, but the warmth and closeness is the same. We just do not do mate, but coffee, beer or rum :) ... being a Venezuelan, however, I feel it is my duty to dis-encourage you from going to Venezuela (unless you have a very street-wise guide), as it would put you in risk without necessity.
Orestes Manzanilla
Orestes Manzanilla Hace 5 meses
@Anders Eriksson Thanks for your words.. As a Venezuelan, I think we are partly responsible, in the sense that for too long, people did not care about politics, people chose to "not be interested in politics", and ceased making the necessary demands when the government and its politicians and institutions had a bad management. People settled for receiving benefits, and just voting to punish the last party in the Presidency. People did not care who was running for parliament, nor how were they changing the constitution, until it was too late, because we had no democracy anymore. I have seen this lack of interest and civil participation in many countries, but I think those with parliamentary systems give less power to the president, and therefore are a little more protected. We lacked being involved as citizens. Did we deserve to die, starve and be tortured, for sure we did not....
