  • Mood:

"Like the back of my hand"

In the US you would say, "I know ___ like the back of my hand." In Colombia, you would say "Conozco ____ como la palma de mi mano," or, "I know ___ like the palm of my hand."

What is it in other languages, back of the hand or the palm? Or is there an equivalent expression that's totally different? Do different English- and Spanish-speaking countries use different ones?
