Argentines are loving. Although private in ways that their pride demands, the majority are openly affectionate and curious. I was soaking up the Spring Sun in Recoleta when I noticed these two love pairs doing the same. The daughter and mother played tag on the grass before settling down for some maternal hugging. The lone porteño watched until the light of his life arrived and whisked away his attention. Every person loves to be completely adored in public here, and no one else pays any mind. With a kiss to say hello & goodbye, Argentines know how to connect with each other and embrace affection. How liberating.. is it surprising the people here are so friendly? Both sides were one of many in the park that day, and both did not want to be anywhere else but in the arms of their loves.
