From email update March 30th:
Fortunately, my language skills are beginning to improve. Thanks to its location and purpose, Dhamma Neru is actually a wonderful place for learning two different dialects (“idiomas”): Kitchen Spanish (“¿Puedes cortar las remolachas?” “Can you cut the beets?”) and Dhamma Spanish (“Que todo los seres sean felices.” “May all beings be happy”).
And some great translations:
English: “to give birth” :: Castellano: “dar la luz” (“to give light”)
English: “mischief” :: Castellano: “travesura” (I dunno, I just get a kick out of that word in both languages, heh)
