Ristleton is all packed:
1. Picture of Mivsie
2. Stuffed Toy
3. Spanish/English Phrase Dictionary
6. Travel Guides
And now, since I’ve decided to always have a special feature for Ristleton and SquiggleEye’s travels, the special feature: an excerpt from Ristleton’s English to Spanish phrase dictionary!
Common Phrases to be used in a Restaurant
You should probably order something someone else orders, or try your best at deciphering the menu.
To order, say, “Quiero el/la…(kee er o ehl/lah) and tell them what dish you want. Quiero or Yo (yoh) quiero means I want, so saying that would be like saying “I want the…”
Por favor (pore fah vore)- Please
Perdóname (pear doh nah mey)- Excuse me/ Forgive me
Estás Perdonado (es tahs pear doh nah doh)- You are excused/forgiven
Gracias (grassy ass- no pun intended 🙂 )- Thank You
Necesito el baño (ness eh see toh ehl ban yoh)/ Quiero el baño (kee er oh ehl ban yo)- I need/want the bathroom
¿Puedo ir al baño? (poo ehd oh eer al ban yo)- May I use the bathroom?
¿Dónde está el baño? (don deh es tah ehl ban yo)- Where is the bathroom?
So, you may ask, Changuita, why would Ristleton need an English-Spanish guide? And I answer, Because that’s the dominant language of the islands they might visit on their cruise.
Also, I don’t know French. 😉 Or any other languages other than Spanish, English, and Gibberish. 😛
