Rolls Off My Tongue Like Honey
While walking & reading, I almost ran into this little old lady. "¡Lo siento, Señora!" was my immediate response. I find myself doing that more and more; responding in Spanish first. I guess when English isn´t an option, you have no choice.
I'm beginning to understand spoken Spanish better, too. It sounds crisper and clearer to me here than in the US. I look forward to picking up my study of the language when I get back. I need to be fluent by my next trip, which will include northern Spain and Portugal. Wanna join me?
