Where Jose likes it soupy and Pedro prefers it stiff.
Ever been there? The precast walls look like ancient Myan/Aztec architecture.

No, and haven't seen much concrete work that stands out as eye-catching. But, I can imagine the work that would go into an exhibit at a zoo.
However, I do recall some funky designs in the concrete at the Columbus zoo, but I thought some could've been fake.

When the Italian guys I use pour concrete it is stiff. The use truss screeds or a roller screed when ever possible if they have to do it by hand it is still stiff. They have refused many loads for not being to their specs. Rarely do they use plastizer.
The couple crews I know who do concrete are Italian and one Irish. Although, the Irish guys do a bigger percentage of block/brick/stone work, rather than pouring.
I admire some great stone and brick work when I see it. It's a trade I've rarely done and probably glad I didn't.

I have seen good stone work too. Your right not a trade.I would want to do. Speaking of immigrants or first generation americans I know two electricians one from Columbia, the other from Argentina and both hate mexicans and skinnys.

The most reason I hear they're hated by other immigrants are filthiness and perversion.

Even if they are pouring steps and the chute can only reach the top?

It like it, but it looks like a bank branch or a BMW dealership.
