Buenos Dias Amigos
Well I have survived my first week of Spanish language immersion here in Juarez. I am on the far right. So far I can order off the left side of the menu at Chi-Chi's. And I finally found out what chi chi's really means. Next week we start learning verbs and how to make fake documents. We have electricity about two hours a day so we have to make sure we are in front of our flat screen computers between 10 and noon. The problem is that is the time that Gunsmoke and I Love Lucy comes on. Well I only have three more weeks of intense study before I take the exam that determines if I can keep my job back in the U.S. If I fail I'll be in the pool of casual day laborers that line up outside Home-Depot. I'll try to post more often but the burro keeps bumping into the satellite dish .
