Today's word of the day is 'escabroso'.

This means steep, sheer and rough.  It also means a subject that's naughty or salacious.

Here are some examples:

  • Fuimos a hacer senderismo pero el terreno era demasiado escabroso.

       We went hiking but the ground was too steep.


  • En la reunión de hoy tocaron temas escabrosos. Fue un poco incómodo.

       In today's meeting they talked about some risqué topics. It was a bit uncomfortable.
