Podría mencionar que Nicaragua y Costa Rica son parte de Centroamérica y no de Sudamérica. ¿Y no se enoja tu esposa de que les grites "¡Ay muñeca!" a las mujeres?

Quite right, and now that I think about it, I might have heard that more in Peru.

I've not been out of the Americas yet. I've been practically nowhere, and have visited maybe only 20% of The States.

My retirement plan is to sail the ocean blue and visit the other continents. I don't follow through on most of my plans though, so we'll see.

I went halfway around the World and had a bad experience, came home and haven't left since. But I like the Vietnamese people, they are the 'good commies'.

My little brother was a world-traveler, and retired to the Sea of Cortés. Winters in La Paz and Summers in San Carlo Guaymas. Or so I hear, I never made it down there.

Last time I was in California was only because I got lost on the way home from Bonneville. (But I coasted all the way from the Siskiyou summit to the first Ashland exit. That's about 16 miles)

I like learning about other cultures and languages in person. You meet a lot of cool, nice friends that way. The food is great too. You don't have to go far to find people from various walks of life. I had tacos and played tri-lingual UNO last night with my buds. It was pretty fun. Some of the Native American languages around here are kind of hard to pick up though.

I played Loteria on a 25hr bus ride in Peru, and that was fun since there were real prizes, and numbers are among the few Spanish words I understand.

Spanish is the only language I care to learn to the proficiency of a 4 year old. It's the only one I encounter frequently.

I wonder if that's the same as the Lotería game in Mexico.

Topic: Why aren't trucks wide enough?

Response: Maybe they're too wide?

Note especially the front wheelwell treatment. An interesting use of an external duct. Sort of a reverse air curtain.

edit: At 23:55 there are models of the Telo and Cybertuck together. What scale? Maybe 1/43rd?
