I have heard the word cerro, but over here we usually say colina.

En chile cuando alguien molesta mucho, lo mandamos " a la punta del cerro"
En chilensis sería "ándate a la punta'el cerro"

"Viejos (son) los cerros y reverdecen", say the elderly people when they mean their age may well be old, but they still have the energy and capabilities to do many things younger people do.


Nice expression, Hernán... I'll take note of it.

Yo he oído 'irse por los cerros de Úbeda' meaning to digress.

Sí María , he visto colina, y pienso que es mejor

Voy a dormir entonces soñar de las grandes colinas verdes de Irlanda. Ahí me sentaré para mirar el oleaje del mar lentamente se arrastra hacia la arena blanca de la playa bonita en la que me relajo sin problemas. ES un buen sueño para mí
