More Spanish phrases

Dear readers,

I realise that the Spanish phrases I included last week proved very popular. Since then, I’ve been sent memes or noticed amusing Spanish anecdotes hung up on random walls. Unfortunately I’ve not had time to translate the phrases but Spanish speakers, or more so Caliche speakers, are likely to be sniggering a while.

The following sayings and humorous anecdotes are hung up at a new little Colombian eatery called Arepas Pues in front of the President’s Palace (a road that is sometimes closed off on President Juan Orlando Hernandez’s orders. You should ask him why). The images are a little small, I apologise. WARNING: If Spanish expletives offend you, turn away now.

About Nicholas Rogers

I am an English journalist/copywriter living in Tegucigalpa, Honduras, and I have been here since 2011. I originally came to work with Casa Alianza, which supports street kids and vulnerable youths. I then stayed on, after meeting Pamela Cruz Lozano, who calls me her adopted Catracho. I work freelance journalism and I have my own translation business. Why did I come here? For the challenge, to open my mind and get out of my comfort zone. I love literature and I've written a book with street kids. I write novels, short stories and poetry, all of which you will find on this blog, as well as a lot of information about Honduras. View all posts by Nicholas Rogers
