Ever since I emigrated across the Atlantic, I’ve made a habit of making hamburgers on July Fourth. It’s kind of silly, but people should celebrate their heritage. Plus, I make a killer burger.
The other interesting thing to note here is the spelling of “burguer”. This is one of many words stolen from English and then respelled so that it can be pronounced properly in Spanish. If it were spelled “burger”, the G would be pronounced like an H, and it would sound like “BOOER-hair”, but the U makes the G hard, so it sounds closer to English. The other word that causes me to roll my eyes when I see it spelled on menus is beicon.
Marga couldn’t wait for the photo shoot and the patriotic hymns to be sung.
