The Beauty of Gas Stations

My Spanish is limited; I know the words for beer and wine. I had thought that I knew what Bella Vista meant too; I would have sworn it meant beautiful sight. Now, I realize that I was wrong. There is a run down looking motel at the far end of Fairfield, bordered by the freeway, a filling station, and a lorry park. It used to be called the EZ-8, but has just been renamed “Bella Vista”; hence my realization that the correct translation of the Spanish must be “sleazy motel in a bad area”
