Spanish term or phrase: tigueritos
Junot Diaz story, bags of water the tigueritos were selling
Kay Vreeland
English translation:See below
Explanation:
Hope you are working with a Dominican Republic translation, most terms I see in the list are from the local slang: pariguayo, tígueres, tiguerito, guachimanes, gavillero, tutumpote, etc. etc. -I'ts my native country-.
Tiguerito: Street boy, peddler,(mostly homeless boys [and girls] who make a living asking for money, shining shoes, washing car winshields, etc.). If need more from D.R., just ask!
Luck!
