spanish word of the day: rastas

Rastas. (noun) dreadlocks.

In Spain they say ‘rastas’ instead of dreadlocks. Imagine my surprise when arranging to meet someone new for the first time, and they send me a text saying they’ll be the one ‘con rastas’ (with rastas), and when I show up, I’m like… “Oh. It’s just you by yourself.... Nice hair.”
