He left me in pampa and the way
Being in “pampa and the way” means having no money, or being a dump, someone without financial resources. Although this phrase is often heard, most Argentines do not know its origin.
Its origin dates back more than 100 years, when the Hippodrome was on the site that currently occupies the stadium of the River Plateclub. For the unlucky bettors who had lost everything, the institution offered a free train service that reached them to the intersection of La Pampa street with the Mitre railway tracks.
From that place, which was a little more crowded, losers could return home more easily. Did you know the story?
Argentina, licenciada en Comunicación Social y correctora. Me apasiona la escritura, la propia y la ajena. Mi amor por las palabras, por las frases mágicas y perfectas, me llevó a dirigir mi carrera profesional hacia la redacción, a lo que luego sumé la corrección para mejorar mis textos y, también, los de otros autores. Porque una imagen no siempre vale más que mil palabras. Gracias por leerme.
