So esquina means "corner", tienda de abarrotes mean "grocery store"...
does encontrarás mean "find"?
does dando vuelta mean "turning"?

That translate is very weir for me, sometimes I don't understand some translate in English, corner (Esquina), grocery store (tienda de abarrates), my father had a grocery store four years ago.

The grocery corner, when the guys arrived to sunbathing, it was named the La Guadalupana, and the grocery store was in a corner of the street Belisario Dominguez.

It just means "turning", it could be walking, driving-- it's not specified.
