Bariloche…You Have a Part of Our Hearts Forever

September 27th, 2010 Posted in day to day

Written by Shanie

It wasn’t to be, or so we thought…but as it turns out we were able to come back to Bariloche for one more visit before returning to the northern hemisphere.

And I must say, it is so very nice to have returned. Stepping on the property, I felt as if I was back home. Looking out at the views, my heart softened with appreciation. And spending time with friends, I was reminded of the special relationships that we created here. There is something quite beautiful about friendships in Argentina…it is more than one thing in particular…in fact, I think the following poem sums it up well…

La Diferencia Entre Un Amigo Y Un Amigo Argentino

Un amigo es alguien que nunca te pide comida…

Un amigo Argentino es la razón por la que organizas una comida.

Un amigo te pregunta ¿cómo estás?…

Un amigo Argentino te dice que te ves bien, te abraza y te besa.

Un amigo llama a tus padres señor y señora…

Un amigo Argentino llama a tus padres “mi viejo” y “mi vieja…”

Un amigo puede que nunca te haya visto llorar…

Un amigo Argentino ha llorado contigo, por cualquier cosa.

Un amigo te manda flores y una tarjeta cuando estás internado en el hospital.

Un amigo Argentino se queda a dormir en una silla, a tu lado.

Un amigo te pide algo prestado y te lo devuelve a los dos días…

Un amigo Argentino te pide algo prestado y a la semana se olvida que no es suyo.

Un amigo te ofrece el sofá para que duermas.

Un amigo Argentino te brinda su cama, se acuesta en el suelo… y no te deja dormir en toooooda la noche conversando contigo.

Un amigo sabe unas cuantas cosas acerca de ti…

Un amigo Argentino podría escribir un libro con las cosas que le has contado de ti.

Un amigo te lleva ‘Resprín’ cuando estás resfriado.

Un amigo Argentino te hace una sopa de pollo y los remedios que le enseñó su abuela. Y puede que hasta te haga ‘el avión’ con la cuchara, para que te tomes la sopa.

Un amigo toca a tu puerta para que le abras…

Un amigo Argentino abre la puerta, entra y después te dice: ¡Llegué!

Un amigo te pide que le hagas un café.

Un amigo Argentino pasa a la cocina y monta la cafetera y hasta le pide azúcar a una vecina si no tienes.

Un amigo puede serlo por un tiempo…

Un amigo Argentino es para toda la vida.

Much love to all of our dear friends that we made during the Argentine chapter of our lives…Anna, Betty, Goya, Cristina, Isabel, Mariana, Chris, Loris, Lorena, Randy, Marcelo, Marcela, Daniela, Rodolfo, Polo, Roberto, Martin, Jorge…our friendships shall withstand the distance of continents, and you shall always be in our hearts.

    Dear Shanie and Jamie,

    gracias por habernos hecho el honor de amar tan profundamente nuestra tierra con todas sus bellezas, virtudes y también defectos.
    Gracias por haberla vivido sin prejuicios pero con el espìritu crìtico de quien quiere crecer y hacer las cosas lo mejor posible.
    Gracias por este hermoso espacio en la web lleno de historias profundas, pensamientos transparentes y sensibilidad infinita.
    Perdòn si no escribì en inglès, hubiera podido hacerlo, pero las palabras salen en “argentino”

    Leyéndolos, aprendì tantas cosas que ignoraba y no fueron pocas…

    Un gran abrazo de oso!

    Flavia

    As you walk through the streets of Bariloche, you ll find another European-imported legacy – St. Bernard dogs and puppies. These dogs, waiting to pose with tourists as their owners income source, once served as rescue dogs in snow and mountain areas.
