So, I'm writing a story set in Argentina (in Corrientes), but I'm having some trouble with use of the word "gringo". From my googling, which wasn't particularly helpful, I saw that it's used in Argentina, but I can't really figure out what connotation is has. I'm familiar with how it's used in Guatemala (i.e. to mean white but also outsider/intruder), and that's the meaning I'm trying to convey. Is "gringo" the word I want, or is there a more appropriate one for Argentina?
