Indlæg om hvordan i ved at jeg har været i Mexico

En lille ting jeg fandt hos en af mine venners blog:

You Know You’ve Studied Abroad in México When…

You’ve realized there’s more to Mexican food than tacos
You think one dollar for a beer is expensive
When you appreciate hot salsa on your Pizza
When you are able to distinguish Cumbia from Salsa
You went an entire winter without seeing any snow
Your hometown and college town survived snowpocalypse 2011 and you didn’t see one flake of snow
Your name is gringo/a
Your classes never start on time
You’ve probably accidentally failed a greeting kiss
You’ve realized the INTENSELY fast speed you probably used in your home country
You know what ahorita and al rato mean
You come back to the states and find you still have little to no regard for other drivers on the road.
When you can explain to someone what “Mexican time” is
When shrimp in your beer makes sense
When 7 or 8 of your friends want to go somewhere and try to decide which two cars to take and your first instinct is “we can all fit”
You have an appreciation for busses in your home town
When agreeing on a meeting time means absolutely nothing!!!!!
You use salsa inglesa and catsup on your pizza
You know you’ll never be able to eat American Mexican food again
There are some words you can only say in espanol because you’ve forgotten how to say them in English
You wiggle your pointer finger at people when you agree with them or saying yes
When you know what it means to ask for “limon” or “jamaica” at a Pemex
When it is necessary to eat half a kilo of carne al pastor after a night out
When you don’t even blink when you see armed guards
When youre talking with friends and you say weyyy at the end of each sentence
When you’re so much more relaxed about life
...You’ve had one freaking amazing study abroad experience!
