Hi @Bombonera ,
I think you are referring to Mr. Carlos post on your post 'A post trip reflective report'. Mr. Carlos and I are the only non-native English speakers of the forum and I realize that sometimes our posts in English may not sound how we intended to. You may have noticed that Mr. Carlos is usually the biggest critic of Argentina among the forum members - and rightfully so. He is a local and has been living in Argentina for eight decades, so he witnessed the fall of a country that was once a world power and is now on its way to become a third world country. I myself can't think of a similar country, besides Venezuela, maybe. Which is not encouraging at all.
Obviously, Carlos is bitter about Argentina's fall, as many other Argentinians who are wondering what will be left of Argentina for their children and grandchildren.
As I read Mr Carlos ' post, he was actually encouraging you to post also the negative stuff because he is well aware that in the last 70 years Argentina has been declining -- and the list of negatives is only getting longer.
Perhaps the misunderstanding arose from the choice of the word "truthful" in his first sentence "Be truthful.". As I read it, I believe he intended as in "please describe the stark reality without sugarcoating it". He wasn't trying to say that "you usually lie, so this time speak the truth".
I really enjoy your posts on the forum and it is reassuring to see that someone else from Europe is considering to move here (even if just part-time) in 2023. The first 2-4 years that we moved here, we were constantly questioning ourselves.
I have met Italians who live in Argentina and Argentinians who live in Italy. Some will adapt, some will not. And this is valid for Italians and Argentinians alike. The pros and the cons can be very subjective. I even found a person who said he has made more money by working a decade in Argentina than 25 years in his home country. And it wasn't in the XIX century!
I am eager to continue reading your reflections on Argentina.
