The men here are very "macho" and it's pretty common to get lots of comments or hisses, chchchs, or smoochy noises are you walk down the streets. Mostly, I ignore it, or diffuse it by being very polite with a "Buenas dias" or some such, which works fine. Last night, I walked up to the park, where there was music and dance performances, and stuff, and there was a fellow who I've seen a few times before, and he tends to be one of the more aggressive about making really serious, intrusive eye contact, and giving me a suave "hola" when I go by. Well, he did the same thing, last evening, but this time, he was walking and I was standing still, so in the process of holding the eye contact and his suaveness, he walked himself right into a tree! I think that made my day.
Went to mass with the mom and sister today, which was okay. I didn't understand most fo it, of course, which, really, is kinda par for the course with me and church, anyway, so that worked out. And tomorrow, I think, to the feria... Tongiht, there's something happening in the park, maybe a parade? I'm planning to go, but it's pretty cloudy now, so maybe I'll stay home if it starts raining.
And then Tuesday, I meet my new teacher and dive back into the excitement of verb conjugation and vocabulary building. Woot!
