"They are carrying five bags."
Translation:Ellos llevan cinco bolsas.
My teacher is a native Spanish speaker in Dominican Republic. He cautioned us to use fundas. Beach bags, trash bags and grocery bags are all labeled "fundas".
He said we would be understood if we said bolsas but adults might smile and kids would laugh. The word "bolsas" is much more commonly understood as an anatomy term. That may just be on the North Coast of DR.
bolsas (male genitalia)
Necesita operarse porque tiene nódulos en las bolsas.
He needs to be operated on because he has nodules on his scrotum.
