I'm from Two Rivers, Alaska, about 20 miles northeast of Fairbanks. Common sayings in our little community include:

"Hike", "gee", "haw", "whoa", and "goooood dogs" ("go, turn right, turn left, stop and thank you").

Also frequently heard at the local watering hole (Trapline Lounge) is the ever popular "Hey Aily (or Jane), how 'bout a pitcher of Alaskan Amber ale?"

Compassion is the sometimes fatal capacity for feeling what it is like inside somebody else's skin. It is the knowledge that there can never really be any peace and joy for me until there is peace and joy finally for you too.

I am from Jeffersonville, IN - which is directly across the Ohio River from Louisville, KY.

The biggest thing one needs to learn here is no matter what flavor of soft drink you are referring to, it is still a Coke. the other thing is to pronounce Louisville as "loo-a-vul". Pronouncing it another way will get you a lecture.

Go through there quite often, Ravenwing. Henderson, my hometown, is less than 2 hours away. biggrin.gif biggrin.gif

Nowadays I'm from a little town called Pesé, about twenty kilometers west of Chitré on the Azuero penninsula in the Republic of Panama.

Sayings and other things around here, there are about a million, but they are all in Spanish of course.

One of the most confusing things for gringos down here is to learn that when someone here says, "Panamá" , they mean the city of Panamá. Sorta like saying New York. So, if I need to go into the city I say, | Tengo irme a Panamá. |

Other sayings, ¿Y mio? (used by bums in a cantina when someone buys a beer ("and mine?").

¡Ay ya la maquina! pronounced Ai ja la makeena (y has a sound like g as in gee), an expression of surprise like Holy Cow! in english

¡Chuleta! (literaly means pork chop, but is used as an expression of surprise when one wants to refrain from using the dirty version)

Soda (any soft drink)

Huele como un gringo viejo. (It smells like an old gringo. My boss uses that one.)

Oh, not really sayings but worth noting, people are addressed often by their racial characteristics or skin color, here it is not usually perceived as being insulting or rude unless it is said in a tone to indicate that.

Gringo any white person from anywhere.
Chino any person with remotely asian features example commonly heard in the small stores, - Oye china, dame una galleta. - (Hey chinese lady, give me a cookie.)
Chombo a black person, usually means carribean type, also the word used for the habañero type peppers.
Cholo mixed indian (indigenous type, see below)
Hindu East Indian as in Resterante Hindu (if you want to eat curry).


If I think of more I'll let y'all know.

Hasta luego,
Leo cool.gif

3Ravens, If you turn right, you end up at Kiser Lake.

For those who did not know. Tawawa Park is in Sidney not Tawawa. unsure.gif

Hola Ocel,

¿Cómo estas? Bienvenido al grupo. Espero que te gusta comunicarse y comparte con nosotros. Disculpe por la gramática mal, pero soy mejorando. Hablo mejor que escribo. Jaja

Ciao, cool.gif

Leo, aquí en Azuero, en un Domingo tranquilo, pero tengo pasar un tiempo haciendo unos informes para mi trabajo, y quiero terminar e ir a la casa antes comienzan el juegos de fútbol americano hoy en la tarde.
