In Spanish there is one word- one- to say “to take advantage of.” We use four words because it tends to not be a daily inclusion in our vocabulary. We can take the time to say those 4 words.
Mendocinos, for example, like to take advantage of their traditions by continuing to be one of the most siesta-oriented provinces in Argentina.
In an industry where certain facilities run for 24 hours straight, or the workers work 95 hours a week, wineries here still break for the siesta. Wineries that pump out 500,000 to 1,000,000 cases a year still figure out how to regularly honor their… traditions.
We don’t all put on pajamas like some at home do, but it is still a nice long lunch followed by some meat-belly basking.
This shocked me my first crush in Mendoza. Then I got over my shock and learned all about the siesta. It was hard, but I finally figured it all out. I aproveché.
