    If you are British, you are allowed to describe in minute detail how you would impale a million Argentinean babies in front of their crying mothers.....

    But an Uruguayan writing some words in Spanish is a biiig No No No...

    Fun, isn't it? That's how I discovered viveza criolla some time back.

    Quite entertaining, but you'd surely end up with a right old mess if you tried to run a country on that basis.

    Read again, viveza criolla is an attitude, while criollo is a dialect... By the way, I think you call your vivasos for tax evaders, they are everywhere in SA, and more of them on the way...

    LOL If it is good news about Argentina reported by mercopress it must be an ambush, unless the soy production diversifies to others grains the international price for soy will crash next year with brazil, Argentina, Paraguay and Uruguay all mass producing soy witch in turn will have a negative impact on price. Argentina should keep the production for bio fuel and meat production to gain jobs and get greater returns for our investments. To move up in the industrial latter and get greater returns for their investments.

    Gustavo Grobocopatel, let me stop you there mate. Everyone who is not Argentinian knows how this will play out.

    You will make this a success and be hailed as an Argentinian home grown hero, right up to the point TMBOA / Ol' Turkey Neck / KFC siezes your company from you and for “Suspect practices” and then you will dissappear.
