I just found out my facebook acct. was hacked. It may have nothing to do with me being in SA and using internet cafes but either way, don´t open any attachments that appear to come from me. So if you receive anything at all suspicious, it´s probably not from me.
Also, I added some stuff to the last post.
We left our beautiful stone room on Mon. morning and headed to the language school. After a lot of sitting around, we met our host family and went to their house, about 6 blocks away. Marta and Jorwerd(Howard) are extremely nice and talkative folks. They also have four boys whose names I can´t remember. For $150 we get all meals, lodging and 4 hours per day of instruction for 5 days. Not a bad deal.
We then headed back and had our first lesson. 2 hrs grammar, 2 hrs conversation. Went well but exhausting.
After dinner we took a cab to Jorwerd´s club. This is a massive sports complex that I have never seen the equal of. Every sport imaginable was available and being used(except for American football). Ping pong, pool, bowling, martial arts, track, weight rooms, dance, 2 massive pools, bocci ball, hand ball, soccer etc.; the place went on and on. It seemed at least as big as an average university campus.
I can tell we are going to learn a lot of Spanish. Possibly more from spending time with our host family than from classes.
By this point it was bed time.
