One Funny Minute (that made me laugh for another 15)

What happens when a local attempts to ask foreigners questions in a language they do not speak…

We were heading south-east, from the Falls of Iguazu to Florianopolis in Brazil, when we stopped for water and a Brazilian truck driver approached us…

Truck driver (in Portuguese): Where are you coming from today?

Fernando: Florianopolis

Truck driver (in Portuguese): Where are you headed?

Fernando: Florianopolis

Truck driver (in Portuguese): Where are you from?

Fernando: Florianopolis

Truck driver (in Portuguese): Really? (he is now quite confused)

Margarita: No. He's Colombian and I Ecuadorian

Truck driver (in Portuguese): Oh! Ok. Now that is far.


Un Minuto Chistoso (y me reí otros 15 más)

Que es lo que pasa cuando un local intenta conversar con un extranjero que no habla su idioma.

Estabamos en dirección sud-este, desde las cataratas de Iguazu a Florianopolis en Brazil, cuando paramos a descansar y se  nos acercó un chofer de camión brazilero...

Chofer (en Portuguese): De donde vienen hoy?
Fernando: Florianopolis

Chofer (en Portuguese): Para donde van?
Fernando: Florianopolis

Chofer (en Portuguese): De donde son?
Fernando: Florianopolis

Chofer (en Portuguese): En serio? (ahora muy confundido)

Margarita: No. Es de Colombia y yo de Ecuador

Chofer (en Portuguese): Oh! Ok. Eso si es lejos!
