Whatever spanish that I know and I'm guessing it is somewhere around two-hundred words to the point I can somewhat casually converse in Spanish and joke around a little in it, but what Spanish I do know and I'm being completely honest here, I've learned accidentally. And what I mean about that is that I've picked up a lot of Spanish simply by watching TV. Similar to people who've immigrated to America and what English they know before they got here was picked up from American TV.
And I mention that because in the late 1990s and early 2000s I started getting into Spanish language TV in America. And I'll be honest again here, really just for one reason. I'm flipping around one night and I see some Latin American soap opera on I believe Univision and it had these beautiful sexy women on it. So I started watching more and more soap operas on Univision and then later Telemundo and I start picking up some Spanish. And then later on I start working with Central American and Caribbean Latino immigrants and picked up some more Spanish from them.
What we call in America Western cowboy and cowgirl culture, is what you see in this video. But it takes place in I believe South America, perhaps Bolivia. And the acting is not very good to be honest with you, but these scenes and movies are pretty popular in Latin America, but with much better acting, programs and movies. Or at least I hope so, but it is always interesting to see cowgirls, sexy cowgirls especially taking on bad cowboys, meaning bad guys and coming out on top.
