It's difficult for me to take time off from work, all set to join Pilot815 and RW66 on their ride and a tendon on a finger broke the evening before leaving.

Getting a shiny new metal rod inserted tomorrow to be removed in two months.


Juan
Sorry to hear about the rod....missed having you with us.....have you had a debriefing with Pilot yet?
Hope you are better soon.

Not yet. The stars have not aligned and he works weird hours. Looking forward to the platica. Ribs are on me the next time you are up here.

And great radio show RMO!

Mexican Spanish works fine Trice , ( mine is half baked in Mexico AND Spain ) as long as the folks speak Spanish.
What you are probably running into is spoken Catalan , not the same but resembles Spanish. Spain is bi-lingual or Tri(ce)- lingual ... or Quattro lingual if Basque etc are counted.
Enjoy the trip !

A very pretty ride in it's own right.
As I was riding through there I was indeed reminded of Napa/Sonoma and Temecula in the
70's...if I still lived in SoCal I would definitely get down to those wine valleys in Mexico...fun road and beautiful countryside.

You nailed it correct with the Catalan, Sjoerd, which I've found both in Barcelona and now in Valencia. Here, not only the spoken dialect, but included in much of the signage as well.

Mexico, Canada, and the U.S. all have their thick regional dialects as well.

Parts of Louisiana have people beyond understanding on the first hearing.

Sounds like Newfoundland, they speak English but you'd never know it.

Troo dat!

Ah got coonass cuz'ns in LA ah can't unnerstan'.

Catalan (or Valencian) is not a regional dialect, BTW. It's a separate language that developed directly from Vulgar Latin and shares more vocabulary with Italian, French and Arabic combined than with Spanish.

Hopefully you will get to hear one of the three regional dialects of Basque spoken during your travels. The Basque language is very intriguing in that it may be the sole surviving indigenous language of Europe having
developed prior to the Indo-European languages migrating west into continental Europe. As such Basque is neither a Latin or Romance language and is the only European language classified this way today.

O-Pun Season

OK, my daughter recently chopped the top off a pineapple and planted it in potting soil to see if she could grow another one.

I nicknamed it Piña Nieto.
