  1. Dar a la comba: mover rítmicamente una cuerda para que otra salte por encima de ella.
    Un juego de la infancia, verdad?

  2. Well that didn’t work! In a cafe near mercado de San Miguel in Madrid today i tried the phrase ‘. Nos cobras cuando puedas’ when I wanted the bill. Ben and Marina say it makes me sound like a local, rather than the usual ‘la cuenta por favour’. The waiter brought two more glasses of wine! I think he thought I said ‘dos copas’. Must be my bristol accent! Anyway, another glass of wine on a sunny Friday lunchtime in Madid isn’t too bad.

    • Oh dear! Well, I think this was more a case of waiter deafness! He probably saw you and thought, “an English guy, I wasn’t paying attention, but I bet he wanted two more wines!” Has happened to me many a time! Do try the phrase again, it’ll work!
