Spanish curiosities

a year ago
In spanish, ajust like in every other language, there are some words that mean different things depending on which country you are in.

For example, in Colombia "Sudadera" is a type of "sport pant" whilst in Spain is a "sport sweater".

Here are some other examples:

Vaquero
-In Colombia it means "Cowboy", while in Spain it can be a "Jean".

Computer

Pen
-In Colombia you could say "Lapicero", or "Esfero" while in Spain you could say "Bolígrafo".
