Life, love and language

First steps

Well, so far I can greet people: “Buenos dias!”, thank them for their help: “gracias”, apologize for my poor attempt at Spanish: “lo siento” and ask them, hopefully, if they can speak English: “Habla usted ingles?” I can also say “No hablo espanol” and “no comprendo”. Vital phrases, true, but not much to show for a week’s work. However, we plod on resolutely with photo’s of Costa Rica to encourage us along the way. Will report back at regular intervals.
