Cohetes in the Distance

Post by Trailrunner on Thu Nov 17, 2016 6:57 am

Six fifty this morning and I'm hearing them in the distance again. Is that you, Ajijic??? If so, what's the occasion? Is today a holiday?

Now, if the weather gods could coordinate with the festivals and cool the beach down a bit more at the same time..........it would be perfect! Very Happy

Where I once lived in Mexico in a pueblo of 27,000 people, I asked a local why the cohetes were always going off. He said, "Oh, it is just someones birthday." I got to thinking, that would mean that on any one day there would be 74 people having a birthday. No wonder they are constantly banging away.

You must have learned your Spanish in another country as cuete in Mexico is a cut of beef roast, usually but not necessarily from the round.
Or maybe they had a big comida of carne asada.  Very Happy
I have seen cuete used for cohete, and wondered where it came from.

Si, borrachos......... pero no creo applica en su modo.   Very Happy

My experts (kids in school), say cuetes (kind of slang for pirotecnicos) are generally all fireworks, while cohetes are the rockets that wake up the light sleepers and the sinners to go to Misa.
