    Spanish Struggles, Urchin Roe

    I had my first exposure to language submersion on my second day in San Juan del Sur. My two Spanish speaking friends and I decided to take a walk up the hill to where Jesus stood looking out over the small city.

    June 29th – July 3rd Monday arrived with the virtual chirping of frogs emanating from my not-so-smart phone telling me that it was 6:30 am and time to wake up. Awaken I did…at 7:30, which is still pretty good for me. Even at 7:30 am it was at least 80 degrees, so I was sweating […] Read more
