Imagine investing millions of dollars to build a first class resort on the beautiful Pacific overlooking the sunsets sinking beyond the skyline of Bahia Todos Santos only to have ignorant tourists call it a place for horses to shit.
It is a bewilderment to me as to why Americans have a problem distinguishing between the two words........
CORAL VS CORRAL
When an American arriives here in Ensenada and says he's staying at the corral I wonder where his horse is. I have tried time and time again to get Pete Gray of Let's Talk Hook Up to pronounce this beautiful resort correctly as "coral" like the living organisms in the sea as opposed to a place to house your horse to be fed and shit. I thought that he could lead the hords of Americans on the VHF radio to correctly pronounce this place. Keep in mind I have nothing to gain from your calling this place a horse shit joint......you can be as ignorant as you want to be and keep calling this resort the corral. Now you can get into a discussion of how to pronounce the word "CORAL" in spanish. But keep in mind you are an American who speaks English and you are speaking English to each other. Now if you wish to take your boat and put it into a corral with horses that's up to you. But for me an American I simply want my boat in a beautiful resort built to house my boat in a first class marina. So if you want to be knowledgeable and cool why not try to pronounce it as the beautiful reef creating organism the builders had in mind when they created the place and named it after the beautiful ocean as opposed for a place for your horse to shit. When are we as travelling Americans going to learn about where we are visiting and give these people respect as opposed to showing them how ignorant we are. I just got back from Tokyo on a Holiday and tried to properly pronounce Karaoke so that they wouldn't look at me like I'm an ignorant American. really......isn't there a huge difference between a coral and a corral ? Hotel Coral and Marina
Kind of like when you were asking for numbers, for Punta Colnett. Punta Colonet VS Punta Colnett
