Spanish term or phrase:estafetas/postas
Durante mi existencia siempre mis familiares me han comentado que en esta vida las estafetas se van pasando de generación en generación y el camino que ellos han recorrido a mí ya no me va a tocar caminarlo.
Explanation: in this connection it cannot be question of a relay-race (which would be the direct translation). My dictionaries indicate a sub-post office, again not quite accurate to get the meaning. I rather think that this refers to segments of a path already walked in life, the individual segments SYMBOLICALLY marked with, as said, markstones.
