“Esos viajes internacionales se los voy a dejar a Rafa —vicepresidente—; **yo voy a andar puro pata de chucho, pero en la provincia”, comentó Colom ( Guatemalan president)Taken fro Prensa Libre a Guatemaln newspaper.

Andar a pata......slang for walking. andar a pie........actually there is no need to use (in most ocasions) pie.eg. Me voy a pie......ok

Voy a camina a pie.......wrong..... better voy a caminar ..I mean if you are walking it is understood that you are going to use your feet
