Si bebe no nade!
This means if you drink, don't swim. It has been a couple of months since a body has been found on the beach below my house. There was a drowning the other day. I was watching the sunset and a couple of police trucks were going up and down the beach road shining spot lights over the surf. When I looked to the north, there was a police boat cruising the coast. It didn't take long to figure out what had happened. Two guys from Guadalajara were drunk and went for a swim. They didn't know the bay and went into the only section of the water with an almost constant rip current. They were both drunk and only one made it back. The body washed up two days later right where he entered the water. "Si bebe no nade!"
