¿Alguien sabe qué es un "porongo"?
Creo que porongo es una planta...calabaza...también creo que es slang for "nobody"
Per en Peru website:
Porongo – Mates Burilados | ...en Perú - Travel Culture History News
The porongo, calabaza de peregrino or, in English, the Calabash fruit is traditionally used in South America as a container for mate, tea made from various herbs. In recent years, Peru’s artisans have been using them to create beautiful works of art to sell to foreign visitors.
According to Dictionary.com:
porongo - noun masculine - (Latin America) - 1. (=planta) gourd , calabash , squash United States 2. (=persona) nobody
Per Diccionario Velazquez:
porongo - noun masculine - (Peru, Bolivia) - an earthenware jug or pitcher.
There are also towns in Bolivia and Peru named Porongo, not to mention a musical group, and a flute made from the porongo gourd.
Thank you so much for the complete answer!!!
Now the text does make sense to me!
