      Wildhogget reacted to MariaSP's post in the thread Ordering beer in Spain with Like Like.
      I've never heard of "copa" in relation to beer. "Copa" would be used if you're ordering wine: una copa de vino blanco / tinto (a glass of white/red wine). For beer, people generally order "caña" (a regular glass). And if you want a big mug, then...

      I live in Spain and this is totally correct, also you can get technical and go by bottle size a quinto, tercero, but normally we order a Caña as who wants a hot beer, unless you drink it quickly!!

      For a larger glass of draught beer I would ask for a jarra. A caña is a small glass of beer on tap - not bottled. Cerveza is a generic term for beer - can be either bottled or on tap and served in a range of sizes.

      Wildhogget reacted to jimmyc's post in the thread Sarria to SDC Poles/sticks? with Love Love.
      I have walked 5 caminos and never used the poles. However I am in my eighties and I worry that if I have a fall and break my hip it could prove fatal. To help me with my balance I usually just find a stick to carry if the terrain is rough.
