Really? I thought they were in Morelos. But then morelos is so small you can step out of it if you move :)



You would drive through Morelos from DF, but the park is a few miles outside of the state border. It is actually at the intersection of Morelos, Guerrera, and Mexico, but the park is all in the Guerrero state limits.

Besides Acapulco, the prettiest city in Guerrera is Taxco, the silver city. An old silver mining town, an American, William Spalding, got foreigners interested in the town in the 1920's. It is now one of the centers of silversmithing in Mexico, and Taxco is a highly recognized brand. You can go there as a day trip from Acapulco.

Hoy es Martes, que significado mi limpiadora de casas, Lupe, esta aquí. Ella dice que hay no problema con diciendo "mi pie." In other words, there is nothing wrong with possessive body parts and clothing in Spanish. When I showed her the video that said "body parts are never possessive in Spanish," she said something about various forms of Spanish and they are not igual. She then went onto complain about how complicated the English rules of pronunciation are.

Show her what English used to look like before we adopted the Latin alphabet.

That looks like Elvish, from Lord of the Rings.

"que significa" and "no hay problema con decir"

"no hay problema con decir"



Why would it not be diciendo? The English word I was going for was "saying."

You also said "with." That preposition doens't work with "diciendo."

You can say "no hay problema diciendo..." but that sounds worng. It's not, but it sounds that way.

In fact, thiking it over, i'd go with "no hay problema EN decir..."

Estado: Hidalgo
Palabra: Ardilla




Today's state is Hidalgo. It is a land-locked state in central Mexico I seldom hear about. The Wikipedia page says they like to eat bugs and rodents there, including adrillas = squirrels.

Ejemplo time.

Mozo, me gustan la ardilla asada, ensalada de chicharras, y un pastel de escamoles, por favor = Waiter, I would like to have the roasted squirrel, cicada salad, and an ant-egg cake, please.

I kind of feel the same way about Hidalgo. I've never been there and I have no desire to go. It's one of the lower states in Mexico in terms of Human Development Index. I have eaten escamoles or "ant eggs", but the thought of eating a squirrel makes me gag. It does have cultural artifacts, but they pale in quality to many others in Mexico.

Hidalgo was the subject of a ghastly intellectual film from 2002 (with an unlikely name).
