Terpii Travels: Spain

Culture

Holá! Terpii here. This month I am hanging out in the wonderful country of Spain! Currently in Madrid warming up with a typical Madrid dish, churros con chocolate! Have you ever tried it?

Spain is one of the world’s oldest cultures with a rich heritage and has so much to offer. Below are some fun facts I have learned thus far:

[3/3] The Emoji Revolution: EMOJI TRANSLATION

Culture

Welcome to the conclusion of our “Emoji Revolution” blog series! We hope you found the information in the first two installments interesting and valuable.

It’s interesting how so many ancient texts such as hieroglyphics, used images to tell a story. These pictograms eventually morphed into a written system consisting of letters or characters in most cultures around the world.
