I must admit, with WiFi and a view of the mountains and lake, this is hard to beat.
The huge plant in front of me is but a minor detail. I can see most of the mountains and the lake in the background.
Today was my first day of Spanish class at San Pedro Spanish School in San Pedro La Lagunas near Lake Atitlan. My teacher is David and he is really smart and very patient. For four hours he spoke nothing but Spanish to me, and surprisingly I could understand most things. It’s incredibly intense to be speaking only Spanish here and having to think about everything, but I really want to learn Spanish and I’m committed to doing as much as I can in six weeks.
Here are a few pictures from the school:
A common area for students with a small restaurant.
A field for croquet or polo. Just kidding.
That little hut is where David is teaching me on a whiteboard (pizarron blanco).
