Social Sciences - Social Science, Sociology, Ethics, etc. / Es un libro de sociologia cuyo tema es ciudad y proximidad. En este capitulo el autor pone como subtitulo "la proximidad, el arte (delicado)de investigar en la acción publica"
French term or phrase: guêtres
Connaître déjà le monde populaire ou n’en être pas trop éloigné, avoir déjà trainé ses guêtres dans les cités populaires, en rend sans doute l’accès plus aisé, moins étranger. ES un documento formal. Proviene de Bélgica... Gracias

haber callejeado/deambulado


Explanation:
Aunque la traducción literal "guêtres" sea "polainas", creo que hay que buscar una expresión más acorde en español.

vagabundear


Explanation:
haber vagabundeado / errado

Traîner ses guêtres. Flâner oisivement, errer misérablement. Le gringalet à chevelure ébouriffée m'a l'air d'avoir traîné ses guêtres aux Cours de la Sorbonne (Balzac, Début vie,1842, p. 352).



DRAE: vagabundear
1. intr. Andar vagabundo.

(Siempre me ha gustado esta palabra, en mi casa la empleaban mucho mis padres...)

Traîner ses guêtres. Flâner oisivement, errer misérablement. Le gringalet à chevelure ébouriffée m'a l'air d'avoir traîné ses guêtres aux Cours de la Sorbonne (Balzac, Début vie,1842, p. 352).
