Galesville and pesetas/pesos
Not to worry, Michael made the trip safely and we throughly enjoyed the concert(as always). Thanks Michael, the music was wonderful. I do have one comment though. In the song "One Mile Apart" you mention Juan Contreas working to earn extra pesetas. Please...the currency of Mexico is the peso. The peseta is the currency of Spain. As my 13 year old son said, if he's earning pesetas, those houses are a lot more than a mile apart. If you needed three syllables, pesitos(the diminutive)or centavos are possibilites. Maybe I'm being too picky, but it seems not getting the basics right is another example of the distance between the two countries. This time the gap is of knowledge and awareness rather than an economic one, but it's telling nonetheless.
So, what's the opinion out there? Does anyone else care about accuracy in songwriting, or am I just too sensitive?
