I just returned from my honeymoon in Cancun, Quintana Roo, Mexico. Natasha and I got to practice our Spanish a lot, we swam with dolphins, rode horses, and did a whole lot of relaxing on beaches, at bars, and at pools all over the area. You can see pictures here.
I remembered a lot more Spanish than I thought I would. I took 3 years of it in school, and then I moved to Texas, where some of my friends spoke Spanish in their homes, so I had a pretty good exposure to it. Maybe I’ll do s’more brushing up and translate my articles into Spanish as well. I’ll probably butcher them horribly, but it’ll be fun to try to decipher the angry Spanish emails telling me how much I suck at Spanish 😉
Well, no rest for the well rested — the minute I got back I ran to the office to pick up the part I had ordered for my broken dryer, and I got that all put back together yesterday, and it seems to work like new! School starts next week, and I have some water valves to replace before then so that my washing machine doesn’t take (literally, I’m not kidding) 3.5-4 hours to finish a load of laundry.
Wish me luck!
