I am a native in this world And think in it as a native thinks

Saturday reflections

Trees and the welcome and all too rare blue sky, in the windows of the ILISA language school that is our home base in San José.

I opted out of today's excursion to the beach. It would have required getting on a bus at 5am for a two hour ride, followed by another hour on a boat, and then after spending a few hours trying not to expose my Irish skin to too much sun, doing the whole thing in reverse and maybe getting back to San José by 7pm.

Our days are so full here, with lectures and presentations on the education system, visits to museums and markets, and Spanish classes every afternoon, that I'm thrilled to have an unscheduled day. There's a cemetery across the highway that I've been wanting to take a look at, and I may meet up with a friend to visit one of the markets.

And of course I do have plenty of homework. There is always homework.
