Tontódromo means "fooldrome"; this is the name the locals give to the main street, because people usually go round the same street over and over again! You can do the same (especially in the afternoon) or you can lean on a wall and be the fools that look at the other fools passing by!

Tontódromo es el nombre que los locales le dan a la calle principal, porque la gente habitualmente da vueltas por la misma calle una y otra vez. Ustedes pueden hacer lo mismo (especialmente en las tardes) o pueden apoyarse en una pared y ser los tontos que miran a los otros tontos pasar!
