Hey hey, so we had our first English class on Thursday, and it couldn’t have gone better. We showed up right before 5 PM at the Community Center in Cerro Mariposa, and to our surprise, about 10 kids were already circled around a desk, pencil and paper in hand, patiently (sort of) waiting to begin learning a new language. within the next 20 minutes or so, another 8 or 9 kids showed up, and by 5:30 we were cruising. We practiced some simple phrases, spent some time describing ourselves in English, and learned some vocabulary related to surfing. These kids are gonna be shooting the breeze in English in no time…

I just put legs on my bed, so I’m no longer sleeping on the floor. Aside from that, we are busy preparing for the next English class on Tuesday and getting everything in line for our first surf outing. More to come soon.
