Erin: Va por el mercado? Are you going through the market?

Bus Driver: No. No.

Erin: o una cuadra paralela? Or one block parallel? (This happenend one time and it actually brought me closer to my house!)

Bus Driver: No. No

Erin: no una cuadra? Not 1 block?

Bus Driver: por los Estados Unidos. To the United States.

Erin gets off the bus and laments: How did he know I'm from the United States?! My accent/bus vocabulary is that horrible?! I thought I was doing pretty well.... oh wait a minute. There's a street named "Los Estados Unidos". That's where he was going.
