Subject: RE: Lyr Req: Clarin de campana
When I made my first visit to Venezuela, it was hard to make people understand what I meant, because of the regionalisms. Once I asked for a JUGO DE ANANÁ (pinapple juice), the man stared at me for a while, and went away. Then I realized that ANANÁ is an Argentinean/Brazilian word, and then asked for a JUGO DE PIÑA. The man turned back, put a machine on, .. bbbzzzzzzzzzzz... and one minute later served the jar to ANOTHER person at the other end of the bar, then came back to me and told me ENTONCES? (and then..?)
I looked at the menus on the wall, and then asked for BATIDO DE PIÑA and got my pinapple juice.
