Not least because the men at the top of the club, sat alongside Bielsa at his unveiling on Tuesday afternoon, have been speaking that way for some time.
General director Marc Ingla, once vice-president of FC Barcelona, has spoken “une refondation” of the club, and the start of a transformation.
Smooth talkers or ‘chamuyeros’ are what we would call players. When charming and innocent foreigners come to town these men will tell them exactly how beautiful they are, how much they adore them and want to be with them, how in love they are and so on and so forth. As in any country you will simply have to be aware of the players.
And whilst Argentinians often get passionate much more quickly than the average American and throw praise around like it was confetti, they don’t necessarily mean it at the same depth as the American guy you’ve dated for two months who finally manages to croak out that he quite likes you.
Maybe it’s the tango, the accent, or the hot temper, but there is something to be said about Argentinian men, isn’t there? You might have to repeat the phrase ‘no’ repeatedly if someone isn’t to your liking. This means that some men leave their mother’s nest at the ripe age of thirty.
I found this quote by Marlene Dietrich which might sum it up: “Latinos are tenderly enthusiastic. In Argentina they throw themselves.”Expect men to approach you when you are having a night out. As a result they don’t know how to cook, clean or do the laundry. Mothers tend to call their sons more often than they do in America, say a couple of times a day, or at the very least a couple of times a week.
A multi-step meal that can last several hours, entrees include choripan, morcilla (blood sausage) and provoleta before moving onto organ meats such as mollejas (beef sweetbreads), chinchulines (chitterlings) and rinones (kidneys).It’s not them being insincere, it’s just part of the culture.And you have to know that the “I love you” after two weeks of dating is not the same “I love you” as after six months of dating. Maybe they’ve watched too many soap operas or their Latin temper is as heated as the sun, but Argentinians can be the jealous types and they don’t mind starting a fight over it. so I thought I knew flakiness first hand – people will promise you anything and not deliver.This is a city where common phrases including, “I’ll call you,” “see you soon,” or “I’m on my way,” are works of only the purest fiction.Newly arrived visitors will wearily wait hours, days or even weeks for a phone call to be returned.
