    you know what freaked me out when I was a little kid? bread in Spanish is “pan” and it’s the same in Japanese. I was definitely not used to Spanish loan words in Japanese. “Pan” in Japanese originates from Portuguese missionaries in the 16th century. [source]

    ahhh Melon-pan (Japanese sweet bread), it’s such an interesting word (and equally yummy!). I used to it eat it all the time in Little Tokyo. It’s interesting because “melon” is an English loan word while “pan” is a Portuguese loan word.

    Funny tidbit I came across: “pantry” traces its roots in Latin for “bread room.” Makes sense now!

    Funny!

    In Korean “bread” is “빵” (bbang) and I always thought it was a French loan word! Maybe it was from Spanish!

    Anyway, I went to mi Tierra foods this week end and I bought a bottle of Inca Kola. I was amazed that they were selling it!

    Let’s have a FIT meeting about loan words and Cola!
