The strange Minnesota-Venezuela connection
Do something like that ever happened to you, Venezuelan living in America reader? It did happen to me once. A guy asked me where I was from, I said "Venezuela", and after that, he kept telling me how cold it was. I was thinking to myself what? Venezuela, cold? So I told him, you know, Venezuela is warm all year long. He was like, aww, I though you said "Minnesota".
Minnesota? Venezuela? I honestly cannot see how come when I say Venezuela they understand Minnesota, but it must be something that Venezuelans say that native America speakers understand as Minnesota, since it's a common joke.
I had no idea. LOL.
I cannot imagine how annoying must be to be a Venezuelan living in Minnesota :)
There is even a Facebook group for this phenomenon hahaha
This little HBO Latino "Habla ..." shorts can be very funny. Don't miss the one of the Asian looking Brazilian Carla... hahahahah
