I won't do that, they don't have to know what you're doing there

Yes, where cold, or at least colder than South-Europeans, we're absolutely not rude. Because we respect and accept each other. Unfriendly we're also not. I'm very friendly, but there rules and when somebody don't follow those rules, I have to be unfriendly.

It might look a bit "strange" (in a way) to see a group of guys dancing together, with no girls around (unless it's a gay place, needless to say ).

And whenever I turn on my TV at 3am on Carnival Day, I can see semi-naked women and men (and some women who were once men) walking around the place singing and dancing Maybe I'm watching the wrong channel

Probably they are the jovial Brazilian ones that Luis mentioned...
Well, Expug is from Bahia. He doesn't seem jovial at all

Which Argentines do you refer to ? From Buenos Aires or from the other cities ?
Because once I heard that there is a clear difference between the behavior of the people from Buenos Aires and the one of people from the other cities and that the image that other nationals have about Argentines is the one of the people from Buenos Aires...
Do you agree ? Being yourself born in another city, but living nowadays in Buenos Aires, perhaps you are the best person to answer this question...
Here in Brazil, for instance, there is big differences regarding different states, even close cities like Rio de Janeiro and São Paulo have different styles of life, even more regions placed far away from each other like northeastern Bahia and the South, for instance...
And I am almost sure that the image that Argentines and Uruguayans have about Brazilian people is exactly the one of the South states, closer to theses countries, while people from Europe and USA regard Brazilians as only the ones from Rio de Janeiro and maybe Bahia, because of tourism and carneval...
