Hobo Heaven,

I am in Hobo Heaven
Free place to sleep and eat.
For the last few weeks I have been staying with
a friend, and exploring the culture of Argentina.
The cheapest way to travel is to visit friends
Stay until they have had enough of your hobo ways.
Eating their food, drinking their drink, and asking way
too many questions.

I can not say who, so I can protect the guilty, from
persecution by the innocent.
But I am very grateful for the hobo hospitality.
Life is good.

I am ready to wonder north, then cross the big pond
called the Atlantic Ocean to visit some friends
and eat their food, and drink their drink, and find a
comfortable place on the floor.

This week was a lesson about the ESTANCIA.
Estancias could be considered a ranch, they may
have cattle, or sheep, or a very large farm. In Patagonia
they are mostly for sheep. An Estonia is about 10,000
hectares or 20,000 acres. It is possible to visit some
Estancias, there are private ones, a public ones.
The have restaurants, hotels, museums, and other thing on them
for tourist.

Go to Estancia on these pages

Maybe it will help you to...
PLAN YOUR ESCAPE... be a hobo

Life is good.

WHAT DOES Manaña Mean?

by Andy the hobo
HoboTraveler.com

This should be fun. I could write a small book about
Manaña.

Than little sign about the N means to
say the N with a Nasal sound

MawNawNa

Manaña literally means tomorrow.
So that Spanish teacher was correct,
but if the teacher only explains to you Manaña means tomorrow.
They are lost. Manaña has lots of meanings.

DEFINITIONS:
Manaña = Tomorrow
Manaña = This morning
Manaña = Bye
Manaña = Goodbye, I will never see you again
Manaña = Goodbye, I hope to see you tomorrow.
Manaña = Sometimes, maybe
Manaña = Maybe
Manaña at 8 in the morning = I will be there between 8 and 12 in the
morning

The word manaña is very confusing for people. This is a
different culture, with different priorities. It is difficult to find a

clock on the wall for the countries between Mexico and Argentina.
In Brazil if you look in a store, there will be a clock on the wall.

TIME is different
The Anglo-Saxon use of time is specific, while
the Latino usage of time if non-specific.

In my opinion when a person says the time in a Latino country
from the Spain origin, it means MORE OR LESS.

It is unfair of you to expect them to change, or be the same
as the Anglo-Saxon version of time.

If you make an appointment, you need to make room for
extra waiting, or do not show up prompt.
If you are always late, this may be heaven for you.

Just for reference you will have the same problem with
TARDE or NOCHE

Have fun! Life is Good!

As always, these are suggestions. Please realize I am
giving guidance, and there are always other opinions.
“One mans paradise, is another mans hell”
This way we do not all go to the same place.
