A Succulent Sketch / Un Esbozo Suculento

IN SAN GERALDO’S Spanish class the other day, the students had to describe where they lived. San Geraldo talked about our apartment and then went into detail about our plants. While trying to describe our collection of cacti and succulents with his limited Spanish vocabulary he began to sketch one. There was some confusion as to what he was trying to illustrate, so he tried to fix it with some shading and the word “dirt.”

EN LA CLASE de español de San Geraldo el otro día, los estudiantes tuvieron que describir dónde vivían. San Geraldo habló sobre nuestro apartamento y luego entró en detalles sobre nuestras plantas. Al tratar de describir nuestra colección de cactus y suculentas con su limitado vocabulario en español, comenzó a esbozar uno. Hubo confusión sobre lo que estaba tratando de ilustrar, por lo que trató de arreglarlo con un poco de sombreado y la palabra “dirt” (suciedad).
