In a light hearted way, my indigenous helper says "yo primero" as he leaves. What does he mean?
I think he is trying to say "LATER CUZ" like in see you later my cousin. Primero is also used as cousin in Mexico
What was the topic of the conversation?
What were the rest of the people about to do?
Yo primero usually means I go first.
I would interpret as "me first", but it Iwould make sense if he was part of a group and somehow got to leave ahead of the others.
Me first. That seems like a strange thing to say when one leaves.
