La Tertulia

This basically translates as a discussion group…in Spanish. People sitting around discussing important world events and philosophical ideas….IN SPANISH! Wow, has my level of spoken Spanish taken a hit since I left Peru (now 13 months ago) but this is the perfect opportunity to gain back some ground. Every Wednesday night. I spent 2.5 hours there today talking about the current political situation in Colombia, the economic crisis and when it actually started, George Bush’s decision to award a Liberty Medal to the Prime Minister of Colombia, etc.

Today was educational. Too bad I want to stop leaving the house at all unless the temp rises above zero.
