Great holmertz 2019-06-19 2:20

Hello Jorge,
The soups look tasty, so I hope you tried at least one of them. They are also nicely served in these traditional blue and white bowls. For good reasons porcelain is usually just known as china in English.
Regards,
Gert

Default To holmertz: china

gert

languages have many curious aspects. once I was travelling and a spanish tourist facing a very complicated thing said: -- eso es una faena de chinos! --- and I laughed a lot because I never had heard about that expression in spanish and in fact chinese has patience to produce intricate things. analyzing the expression from portuguese, that is very near of spanish, it looked funny for me.

take care

jorge
