Okay, so it’s the wrong Mediterranean peninsula…
Some turkey facts for you.
- The word for turkey in Spanish is “pavo”.
- “Pavo” is also Spanish slang for the US dollar. “It cost me 30 bucks” = “Me costÃ³ 30 pavos”
- The Spanish word for “peacock” is “pavo real”, which means “royal turkey”.
And my favorite turkey fact of all…
- The word for “turkey”, the bird, in Turkish, is the same as the Turkish word for Greece, the country, not the musical.
Can you imagine having a pavo pizza, mediterranean style, in a mediterranean cruise!
