spanish friday, latina-ish, learning spanish Today is Spanish Friday: Blog post in Spanish; English translation below.Generalmente, yo no soy una persona olvidadiza — no porque tengo una memoria fuerte, pero porque siempre escribo todo: listas de cosas para empacar, comprar, hacer. Sin embargo, hay una cosa que he olvidado empacar no una vez, no dos veces, pero tres veces: un traje de baño. No empaqué uno para nuestro viaje a Nepal, y por eso, compré esa preciosidad por $8 en Pokhara.bathing suit, pokhara, nepal, trekking shop, 80s bathing suitEs como un traje de baño de Lisa Frank de los 1980s.Y lo llevé puesto. En público. ¡Nepal hace calor — yo quería nadar!
