Misunderstood expression of the week – el gato al agua

Blogs and social events

This misunderstood expression of the week is used to describe something that was difficult to achieve.

There are several theories about its origin. It is thought this expression comes from Ancient Greece and the game ‘tug of war’ and in the beginning it was a form of military training. The game consisted of two groups each one at the end of a rope and in the middle there was a river or puddle so the losing group ended up all wet and on all fours like a cat.
