Every six weeks or so, I try to plan an outing with my English class, so they can practice speaking English outside of the classroom while exploring new places in our area. Kevin and I have come to realize that you can live in a small corner of this country and it would take a lifetime to discover a quarter of it. So many of the people we've met so far have told us they have not been to this place or that place. There's always another mountain to cross over. It's fascinating.
I invited my class to come to our farm today, hike on some of our trails and practice English. I'm always so impressed that everyone really tries to speak English on these outings... even to each other. After giving them the tour of our ponds and gardens, we took them up one of our easier trails then when we were done, we sat down and shared some ceviche, guacamole and pizza. We had a great day!
This is Paola. She is Martin and Clara's oldest daughter, Nacho's sister... and one of my students (and friend of course).

Not everyone from the class was able to join us today, but was still a nice turn-out. From left to right: Gregory, Róger, José, Adriana (and husband, Roberto), Elizabeth (the Spanish teacher at our one-room school), Paola and me.
