Just over a week ago some of my wife's distant relations visited us from Buenos Aires. I've met them before and have got on great with them especially the two boys (both in their mid to late 20's) and their mother. I have to admit the father has always made me feel a tad uneasy.
Whenever we have visitors I've always chosen to be diplomatic whenever they've asked my feelings about living in Argentina. This time however I warned my wife I wasn't preapred to hold back what I really thought as I've got fed up living a lie..
So when the question arrived I just told them what I thought, which was basically that their country is not only corrupt but an an economical disaster with no signs of it being anything else especially now Macri has gone. I went on to say the UK is years ahead of Argentina in all areas and has been for 40 years.
The boys agreed, the parents said nothing....the look on their faces said it all. The boys went on to say Argentinians are basically a bunch of lazy sods who expect the good life without putting a lot of effort into getting it.
My wife had told me the parents were K supporters which probably explains their reaction...the mother was okay but the father found it hard to look me in the face after my little rant.
