The living carries the dead.
The dead cries out with a loud voice.
The living is out of breath.

What is it?

(This is supposedly an old Maltese riddle.)

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


El vivo lleva a el muerto.
El muerto grita con una voz ruidosa.
El vivo se queda sin aliento.

¿Qué es?

(Es supuestamente un viejo acertijo maltese.)

That's a good guess, Marta. I'm sorry, but that's not it. I've had the experience the riddle talks about myself. It's got something to do with Asturian culture.

Adivinas bien, Marta, pero no es así. Yo me he encontrado esta experiencia de la cosadiella. Tiene algo que ver con la cultura asturiana.

Very Happy If it is related with the asturian culture, then....may it be a bagpipe?

That's it!

Boy, the first time I tried playing the gaita, I thought I was going to die. Actually the first week I had trouble keeping enough air in the bag. Then it didn't seem like a problem. I've never figured out why it seemed so difficult.

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

¡Eso es!

Vaya, la primera vez que intenté tocar la gaita, pensó que iba a morir. Bueno, realmente la primera semana era difícil mantener bastante aire en el fuelle. Entonces no me parecía tan difícil. Nunca sabía porqué me parecía tan difícil al principio.
