bote bote, Tito
Bote bote is Spanish for “can can”. It’s a game we used to play in the summer time. It’s similar to hide and seek but involved kicking a can. My childhood was this. Not only because of the game but because it was summer and a lot of people from other parts of Spain came to the building where I lived. My city was a tourist city for summer vacation. There were some friends I only saw during the summer so it was a very playful time and I remember it very well. We used to play at night which was amazing. Imagine being 7 or 8 years old with a big and safe playground just next door. I have very beautiful memories of this.
