Photo: Silhouette of Jumping Cholla Cactus
In Arizona, and hopefully elsewhere, we pronounce words that are Spanish in origin, such as cholla, using the "Y" sound for the double "L." So "cholla" is pronounced "choya."
That is the correct pronunciation that would be used in most of Latin America. In Argentina, it would be pronounced "chozha."
The most common example of this pronunciation is the Spanish word for chicken, which is pollo.
Today is Sunday, so we have new photos posted on our Viva la Voyage travel photo site. This week we are showing photos of Waterford, Ireland, the home of Waterford Crystal.
