Languages and study.

9 Jul

G’day folks,

Firstly, while I remember I have finally got around to posting my Thailand end of chapter.

The reason why its taken me so long is because the past 2 weeks I have been taking Spanish lessons, and have another 2 weeks left in them, so I have been studying hard.  If only I was this focused when I was at university!

The good ol’ study of language, I reckon the more you study the more you realise you don’t know. Anyone that has studied a language will know that it is one of the most frustrating things, 1 step forward, 2 steps back it feels like sometimes. Some days you can talk about swine flu with the local taxi driver for the whole journey, then the next day the grocery assistant asks you “how are you?” and you stand there looking like a cow that has eaten too much grass or a deer in the head lights, what ever rocks your boat, moooooooooooooo!

But it is also one of the more rewarding things to study. Looking back you realise that you have improved, and realise that even though you sometimes look like a cow that has eaten too much grass, you know that 2 weeks ago you looked like a cow that is one mouthful off a food coma and has a small dose of the mad cow disease, which they call La vaca loca in spanishwow, those spanish lessons are paying off, I can say mad cow.

Enough of my rambling, the photos I have posted here are taken on my walk to school, and the body of water is the lake that Bariloche is by. Nnot a bad view for a morning walk to school.

Anyway,  just wanted to say that I had put up the Thailand end of chapter up. Argentina independence day tomorrow, so I’m heading up the mountain for the first day snowboarding, woop woop.
