He estado toda una tarde estudiando las fotos. He acumulado tantas en mi vida— pero hay dos particularmente que me interesan. Esta es la familia de mi madre.
De cuerpos esbeltos y sanos, los hombres con sus figuras de esgrimistas— siento nostalgia al mirar esta foto.

Cachivaches is always said plural, never singular. No one says it that way. Tengo muchos cachivaches que necesito acomodar. In Ecuador chucha is a curse, so be careful when and how you say it. Literal meaning: A bun of bread , a special type of steamed roll.

Actually, keep it only in Colombia, because other Spanish speakers could get a little perverted on you. Si sales con el pelo mojado te vas a sentir maluca. Dicen que el agua salada es muy buena para la salud. They say that the salty water is very good for the health.
