So, I'm in Costa Rica! It's beautiful and warm and lush and green. I have a sunburn and I hardly care. I've swum in the ocean each of the last three days, and my skin feels amazing. My Spanish is coming back to me more quickly and substantially than I exoected, even with relatively casual use. I even successfully deployed the subjunctive a few times today!
I want to have a lot to say about it, but I don't, really, at least not yet. It's nice to be away, spending pretty minimal time at a screen, soaking up sun and some real, solid relaxation.
For those of you wondering about the confessional: I can't host and moderate from here (nor would I want to), so I'll be posting it next week sometime.
