Did I do that correctly? Just wondering if anyone here speaks Spanish very well? I learned some Spanish when I was in Mexico, and I studied it in college, but I can only understand a few words and phrases anymore.

Claro que si! Pero se me hace que tendremos que escribir sobre temas culinarias, que no? No seria una tonteria tener todo el mundo admitiendo aqui que no mas hablan 'un poco' sin tener algo que descutir? O piensan que seria suficiente tener aqui un foro para anglohablantes que quieren practicar su espanol - como un "Kaffeeklatsch" linguistica? (En vez de describir lugares donde comer....)
Buen provecho,

I only know one "phrase" and it isn't very nice. Oh, I can count to 10 but then so can my eight year old. The only time I was required to take Spanish was in 7th grade and that was some time ago. Oops, I do know something "besos". Guess that's not considered "speaking" though.

My Spanish-speaking abilities are mainly limited to the few phrases most important to me when nursing:
No empujar! - Don’t push! (Very important one!)
Respiracion grande - big breath
tos grande - cough big
tiene dolor? - are you having pain?
soy enfermera - I am a nurse
el doctor esta viniendo - the doctor is coming
como si siente el pecho? - how does your chest feel?
Usted hambriento? - are you hungry?
Usted sediento - are you thirsty?
Usted desea una pildura del dolor? Do you want a pain pill?
Tiene dolor de pecho? - are you having chest pain?
Pis aqui - pee here

- Lone Star,

You might do a tad better with the following adjustments:

No empuje! [em-POO-heh] - Don’t push!
ya viena el doctor - the doctor is coming (the doctor is on his way)
como se siente del pecho? - how does your chest feel?
tiene hambre? - are you hungry?
tiene sed? - are you thirsty?
quiere una pildora para el dolor? - Do you want a pain pill? (do you want a pill for your pain?)

- EdSails,

"tastada camarones"? Might you mean "tostada de camarones"?

- All y'all,

You seem to be stuck in the rut of foods from the taqueria menu - y hay mucho mas para disfrutar! Por ejemplo:

alambre
atole
avena
bacalao
borrego
cabrito
cajeta
cangrejo/jaiba
capirotada
cecina
ceviche
costilla
champurrado
chapulin
chicharron
ensalada
escabeche
flan
frijoles borrachos
frijoles de olla
galleta
huachinango
huitlacoche
jitomate/tomate/tomatillo
longaniza
manchamanteles
menudo
natillas
ostion
pambazo
pavo/guajolote
pescado
pok chuc
pozole
pulque
queso fundido
rompope
salchicha
sopa de arroz
sopas de: fideo, albondiga, etc.
sotol
tarta
tinga
torta
tortas de: coliflor, huazontle, etc.
trucha
venado
xolostle
zapote

(This just an incomplete attempt at a culinary alphabet - try Googling these for a new window onto the foods from south of the border - y para practicar mas su espanol!)

Buen provecho,
Richard

Maybe I should read more carefully, but it seems I never saw it spelled correctly:

"Se habla español"

Don't forget the mark above the "n." Damned if I can remember what that mark is called, but the spelling is wrong without it. With a Mac, it's easy to add other languages to the keyboard.

Richard,
Sorry-----quick typo with fast reply button=misspelling tostada! And please add to your list two of my favorites----birria de chivo and tamal de verduras.

Michael,
How about some words on your dining on your recent trip? Hope you had a good time!

Ed

Thank you Richard, whatever it takes. A lot can be said with frantic gestures at times.

I love:
Ceviche

ensalada of all kinds
flan
borracho beans
pozole
queso fundido
sopa and tortas of all kinds

Pass on
Cabrito - had it several times in the panhandle, never did like it.
Menudo

Is a sandwich sometimes called a torta too?

Oops, a wee bit off-topic, but Ed Sails met me, my partner, and some friends of ours in Disneyland in December, and then took us to the most amazingly delicious Southern Roadfood restaurant nearby, in Orange. I had SUCH a taste for fried chicken, and it was awesome, but Ed ordered ribs, which made my mouth water, so he gave me a rib. CHOMP!

Suffice it to say:

Ed Sails Knows Roadfood!

I will put a Disneyland post in "Where to eat" tomorrow, while I'm waiting for the phone company. That should give me all the time I need to write.

I was an ICU/ER nurse and House Supervisor for years and years. Now work in the legal arena. Had to get out!

Well I'm of the opinion that in this country we speak the King's English and that is the rest of the story.

Although I can speak enough Sppanish to get my face slapped and enough German to get my butt kicked

Dos Tacos and Uno Cervaza por Favor!

I took three years of Spanish in High School -- the bad news is it was three years of Spanish ONE.

And, even after all that, last time I was in Mexico, I still heard myself saying "uno al-beer'o ... how-many-o pesos will that be? Per-favero, where is the el banos?

Happily, the el-waiter-o still understood the universal language -- the el-tippo, and I didn't get in too much en-trouble-0 ... not counting the tequila el-hangover-o.

. ..... adios-o!
