home sweet home!

here are some spanish tongue twisters for you in preparacíon for our opening tomrorow:

Pedro Pablo Pérez Pinto Prieto,
Pinta puertas por poco precio,
Para poder pasar por Perú
Por el Partido Popular.

Pedro Pablo Perez Pinto Prieto
Paints doors for little money
So he can cross over to Peru,
For the Popular Party.

or the titular:
Erre con erre cigarro;
Erre con erre barril.
Rapido corren los carros,
Cargados de azucar al ferrocarril.

“R with R” cigar
“R with R” barrel
Quickly run the cars,
Loaded with sugar on the railroad.

or the very sensible:
Como poco coco como, poco coco compro.
Since I don’t eat many coconuts, I don’t buy many coconuts.
