Today was my first Monday. Yesterday, I kicked around a little and got my bearings. I went to the España grocery store and got some pop. I can walk there through neighborhoods than have people in them so it is not scary. The people are good here, so it is the lack of them that becomes scary.
In the late afternoon, I went to Mujer Maravilla aka Wonder Woman over in Shopping Villa Morra. It was in English with Spanish subtitles. The fight scenes with the Amazons were beautiful. It was like a dance.
The theater itself was very classy. It had ushers. Real, honest to God ushers like back in the Fifties and Sixties. There wasn’t 20 minutes worth of commercials before the movie either. I will be going to the movies here again. Just saying.
Sat down to breakfast with a guy that turned out to be Portuguese. Tried out some of my Brazilian portuguese on him. Kind of basic communication, but encouraging.
Today I walked to España again. There is a little shopping complex there. I got some toenail clippers without having to act it out or take off my shoes. That is what we call a win, my friends.
For lunch I ordered someone for lunch that I didn’t recognize the name of. It looked like abogado but wasn’t. Abodago is Spanish for lawyer, but it wasn’t. It wasn’t tough enough to be lawyer anyway.
Class was great this afternoon. Like to begin the class with this video to show them about engagement. They settled down, got quiet, and paid attention. Truly and awesome teaching experience.
