1. 18 is not only a number.
The anniversary of our First Junta and favorite holiday doesn’t just last a day (the 18th of September), but goes on for a minimum of three days of parties and celebrations. You can find around 42 typical things we say during these festivities. Some people swear on their mothers’ life that it is allowed to drink on the streets, because anything goes. Once, I saw people making a barbecue on the cabin of a pick-up truck, while someone was driving it! Give me Mardi Grass, King’s Day, St Patrick’s, or any other festival: the 18th stands tall.
