Dave - Guanajuato Plaza
David in the Plaza Mexiamora
On the eve of my first Spanish lesson, I thought I’d share with you what I already learned.
BABIES: Babies don’t speak English or Spanish. If you smile and wave to them, they’re fascinated with you. Moms will smile at you, too, and everybody feels good.
DOGS: Every house has an outdoor dog. They’re mostly for security; the bigger the bark, the better the dog. I have seen quite a few dogs living on roofs, incessantly barking when someone comes near. I always want to pet one, but am afraid. I guess they’re not pets.
C AND F: The C and F on the sink does not mean Cold and Freezing, but rather Caliente and Frio – enough said.
D AND C (or M AND H): David walked into a restroom labeled “M”. He found out the hard way that it meant “Mujeres”, not “Mens”. He should have walked into “H” (Hombres)!
I’ve learned 100% more Spanish in just the week that I’ve been here; unfortunately, I only knew about 10 words to start! I am very confident that I will learn tons more – wish me luck!
