Dicho for Family Resemblance

One of the highlights of having my parents visit us in Nicaragua for almost three weeks was seeing everything new through their eyes, and remembering similar reactions I had many months ago when everything was fresh and new.   This was especially true with my Pappa!  I came to have an even deeper understanding and appreciation for where I gained my openness/excitement for new experiences and my curiosity.  Adding to our similiar personalities,  the fact that we Nilsen Norwegians look quite a bit alike led many of the Nicaraguans we came in contact with to drop this dicho:

Hijo de tigre nace rayado – The son of the tiger is born striped.

I would be quick to follow up with another similar expression de tal palo, tal estilla (from such  stick, such  splinter).  I think they have a point, and I couldn’t be happier to be the cub of such a goofy, inquisitive tiger 🙂
