Spanish - So, I took three years of Spanish and you would never know it. I´m trying hard, but I have a really hard time keeping up with the locals here. It´s great practice and really makes me want to really learn spanish. Maybe that will be my 2010 New Year Resolution. Todd on the other hand studied French. I think he is just more naturally gifted at language because he seems to comprehend a lot more than I do. And he is never afraid to just take a stab at something or work his way around the situation (which there have been many). Oh well, I can say it, Todd is better at languages than I am.
Jealousy - So this vacation has been frought with jealousy, especially by Todd. Don´t worry nothing is going on. We are just jealous of the amount of time that everyone has to spend in South America. Most people we have meet have at least 6 weeks down here and many are taking 10 months to a year to travel throughout South America. There is an unbelievable amount of things to do and places to see, I think we will just have to keep coming back.
