Thread: Your other half

  1. #1

    Default Your other half

    For what ever reason I never heard people in Nicaragua using this saying, but this past week I heard it at least 4 or 5 times, in different parts of the city, so apparently it is very Nica, or at least very Managua.

    Media Naranja, which litteraly means half an orange, referring to your other half or spouse.

    .

    Good to know! I'll try it out around here and see what weird looks I get. The neighbors know my Spanish is shaky and they put up with me well, wonder what responses this will get?
