Estimados listeros,
One of the largest of the now disused lime kilns in San
Andres de la Cal is pronounced by the villagers as xiuh li tempa which they
translate as “en la orilla de las yerbas.” I’ve tried pronouncing the site,
xiuhuitl i tempa but nobody’s buying that form. Is the former possible?
