Stuff I learned in Costa Rica, part 2

Don't be fooled by the apparent simplicity of Spanish. Here's just one example:

Pizzería = Pizza store
Papelría = Stationery store
Taquería = Taco Store
Librería = Bookstore
Yonkería = Junk yard

But a "Ferretería" does not sell ferrets. If you find yourself in Latin America AND in need of a ferret, such a store will not help you!

I don't know; they'd probably sell you a ferret trap.
