Hi everybody!
Could somebody give me an equivalent of "Cuando pase el temblor" or the one we use in the countryside (where I live) "desensillar hasta que aclare"?
In Spanish we would use them as in "I'll travel when the swine flu is over" (Viajaré cuando pase el temblor / No viajaré; hay que desensillar hasta que aclare) which is absolutely true!!!!
Thanks in advance,
Amazing

    Hi apuquipa.
    They sound quite literal to me but most probably there aren't other options.
    Thanks a lot

    I would say 'when this blows over', and it could apply to either a storm or the swine flu or any other troublesome event.
