Tarde also means afternoon. And the fact that it's immediatly before 'night' doesn't help, you may want to consider accepting it

The quiz master SPECIFICALLY SAID that if more than one answer fit, use the most common. Tarde by itself would more likely elicit "late". For time, it would be moreoften something like .... de la tarde...

I typed in afternoon first but after thinking about it a second got the right answer. I don't think there's any need for a change.

Since you have diacritics on most of the words that require it, you might want to add it to 'tío' as well.

It seems to me that a couple of these, fiesta and burro, have become so common in English that they don't need translating. The words have become part of the language even apart from Spanish-speaking areas, and are synonyms of the clues rather than translations.

Barrio can also mean district. And jefe also means head. Not the sae head as 'cabeza' referring to your head on your body, but head like 'the boss'.

I submitted burrow first instead of neighborhood for 'burrio'. Being that they mean the same and share a base, burrow should be accepted.

I would like to point out that while I habla no Español, I do know how to say, "You're ugly and your mother dresses you funny," in Spanish, as well as French, Russian and German. Just never know when you're gonna need that one.

Even though I've never used Spanish outside of the classroom and while south of the border, I use at least half of the words on the list in regular English conversations without anyone noticing. I'm not sure if that would be the case if I lived in New York or Michigan but in Houston it's the case.
