Got home from service learning week yesterday, helpin out turtles in samara, on the pacific side. more on that later. but for now, fun anecdote.
Okay, so in spanish, “piernas” means ‘legs’ and “piedras” means ‘stones.’ And I came home from the beach last weekend and casually mentioned to my host mother that “mis piedras duelen,” in english that “my stones hurt.” And she was like “what?!” (except in Spanish because, well you know, that’s what they speak here) and explained to me the difference between the words and now I will never ever forget. The end.
