In Rodellar I was walking with my friend Laurencio from Brazil, who is 22 and has been living in Ireland learning English for the last few semesters. He was explaining how much he loves the river, the Mascun I think it’s called, that runs through the canyon there. We had this exchange:
How do you say this in English, ‘to take a bath in the river’?
Um, you just say “take a bath in the river.” We don’t have a special expression or word for it or anything.
No? Well I love to take a bath in the river.
