Argentina is my home (Spanish)

Transcripts available in the following languages:

(Spanish) In Argentina, how can I say this, I did not, perhaps, do great things. [I did] nothing [in fact]. I had the pleasure of living. I suffered somewhat but I enjoyed life. The most important thing is that I am happy being in Argentina and here I will die. That’s it. Perhaps I didn’t become a millionaire, but I enjoyed [life] so much and I know many people. And that, I think, is a good thing. I love Argentina a lot, the Argentine people, Argentines themselves, in spite of the many problems…many things, at the very least Argentines, including the Nikkei, are all good things for me.
