Today, I started my first official private Spanish lesson. I have arranged to have a friend, Sonia, from Copey teach me Spanish every Tuesday morning. I'm communicating pretty well, but I look forward to improving and being able to speak fluently with my friends and neighbours. Oh, and I can't wait to answer the phone and actually understand what the person on the other end of the line is saying. That is, without a doubt, the hardest for me. I can't use my hands and mime my way out of a situation. I hope these private lessons will accelerate the learning process and allow me to reach a new plateau. I'm crossing my fingers.

My husband, Kevin, and I are from Burlington, Ontario, Canada. We decided to leave the cold winters of the Great White North and the hustle and bustle of our busy lives to reinvent ourselves in the beautiful mountains of Costa Rica. The planning stage started in June 2011 and we embarked on our new adventure on August 23, 2012. Welcome to our journey... enjoy the ride.
