AsturianUS explores the early twentieth-century migration of thousands of

Carmen, how many people attended? Did you meet Luis?

(It's embarrassing that everyone sees Xose and I pouring cider so poorly. We're really much better than it would appear!)

--------------------

Carmen: ¿cuántos personas asistieran? ¿Encontraste Luis?

(Me da vergüenza que todos ven a Xosé y yo escanciando la sidra tan burdamente. ¡Somos realmente mucho mejor que parece!)

Yes, I did meet Luis, of course, and we even had dinner together.. not at an Asturian place, but at an Indian one.

There were -I would say- about 40 people, although I did not count them so I am not really sure.

About your "dotes de escanciador" let me tell you that you do it much better than me and I was born and raised in Asturias, so don´t feel ashamed at all!
