AFTER  A PARISIAN RECEPTION

Ast. and Bie andorga, Eng. stomach, belly; a stomach full (used in a humorous context); a guest invited to eat (a stomach full) at someone’s home. The expression goes back to the Middle Ages. Stuffing guests’ stomachs was a sign of good hospitality. [García Rey. 1934:40; and Tapiello. 1994:137]

  1. We (naturally literated people) still say "rellenar la andorga" meaning to fill up the stomach. But the guy in the picture seems about something else after the relaxing massage... nothing to do with digestion, I fear...

  2. In order to deal with Parisan hospitality,, the gentleman must relax!
    The idea is that the weight will go down and out thanks to such delicate hands!
