Hmmm well the Spanish language seems to be full of opportunities to make a fool of yourself.
I recently asked for the price of membership for an arse to join the gym instead of a year.
Another embarrassing mistake is telling someone I was pregnant instead of embarressed.
Then we come on to ordering pear juice and actually asking for bitch juice (perra instead or pera)
When Parker Pen marketed a ball-point pen in Mexico, its ads were supposed to say "It won't leak in your pocket and embarrass you". However, the company's mistakenly thought the Spanish word "embarazar" meant embarrass. Instead the ads said that "It wont leak in your pocket and make you pregnant".
An American T-shirt maker in Miami printed shirts for the Spanish market which promoted the Pope's visit. Instead of the desired "I Saw the Pope" in Spanish, the shirts proclaimed "I Saw the Potato".
Chicken-man Frank Perdue's slogan, "It takes a tough man to make a tender chicken", got terribly mangled in another Spanish translation. A photo of Perdue with one of his birds appeared on billboards all over Mexico with a caption that explained "It takes a hard man to make a chicken aroused".
In an Acapulco hotel a sign read "The manager has personally passed all the water served here".
The Mitsubishi four wheel drive marketed in Australia as the "Pajero" was the cause of great emabarassmentt in Spain where "Pajero" means "masturbater".
In Spanish, the word "preservative" is translated "aditivo". In Spanish, the word "preservativo" is "condom". So, this girl went to a cafeteria and asked for a "zumo de naranja, sin preservativos, por favor". That means she said: an orange juice with no condoms, please!!

Hmmm it seems I have picked the wrong Tropical island to pursue my love of tennis, ah well back to the other sports.
There are tennis courts everywhere but very few people wanting to bash a ball around in this heat.........after visiting other countries I had visions of an ex-pat community playing tennis everyday like I'd seen elsewhere, but alas its going to take a while to build up a core of hardened tennis nuts.
I've managed to play a few games in the last few months, and have had a few leads to pursue from messages on the dr1 forum http://www.dr1.com/forums ...but they dont seem as keen as in the uk where we would wait for hours for a break in the rain or shovel the snow up to play.
I wonder what I should do if i break a string as finding tennis balls was more of a challenge than I'd expected. It seems Santiago is the place for almost everything and only and hour and half away lol
