Mi Casa Es Su Casa

If you stepped on a scale in Spain or in Latin America, you would get the shock of your life. Supposing you weigh 110 pounds, the scale would register 50. No, you haven’t lost any weight. You are just using another system — the metric system — and you are being weighed in kilos. Each kilo is approximately 2.2 pounds.

If you entered a clothing store, you would have to tell the salesperson your size in centímetros. A size 9 shoe, for example, would be a 40, a
pair of men’s trousers with a 34-inch waist would be an 86. A doctor taking your temperature gets a reading centígrados. A normal temperature in centígrados is 37°! That’s equivalent to 98.6° Fahrenheit.

" Out of all the responses, we found that most of our readers keep at least 3 issues of Inside Annapolis Magazine around the house, but a couple of our readers have over several years of issues! We're glad to hear that so many of you stay with us!

Thanks to all those that voted!
