Spanish Saying of the Day: Borrón y cuenta nueva

Spanish saying of the day: borrón y cuenta nueva. Visit

"Borrón y cuenta nueva"

I like this saying very much, because it means that you should forget bad things and start again, as if nothing had happened. You will quickly understand this, because the English equivalent is "Let's make a fresh start". 

This saying is not literally translated. Borrón means inkblot. Cuenta nueva means a new calculation. This saying is supposed to be born when pen and ink were used.
