It was wonderful seeing you all again. It was a
pity that Laurie and Catalina couldn’t make
it due to work engagements. It was a great
pleasure to have Maria join us. I certainly hope
that she will honor us with her presence
every month. In this meeting we discussed
definitions, vocabulary, and procedures among other topics. The discussions were energetic
and very challenging. We learned a great deal.
Some items that seem to surface repeatedly are “burglary” and “malicious mischief.” Not that we are personally involved with these actions, but it seems that the characterizations in English and in Spanish are different and therefore a bit hard to translate. I’m sure we will revisit them, so if you wish to research sites from Spanish speaking countries and obtain definitions, it will make for interesting exchanges.
Thank you Grettel for explaining “diversion” and the details it involves. Thanks Carlota for your lush list of terms. It takes sincere interest to take the time to prepare and study this. Richard and his unvarying sense of humor came through again with a story that made us all smile. I truly hope that next month we are together again, noshing our brains, kindling our spirits, and inspiring each other, all in that little corner
of the Interpreter’s Café.
