As we proceeded through class the teacher began calling students up to the board to practice converting dry matters, etc. They are simple calculations, and I was understanding everything very well. I got worried, however, that my brain would shut down after he asked me to come up to the board for a problem. Gulp. All I could think was, "please let me understand him so I don't look like a stupid gringo!" Success! I was the fastest to solve the problem of the group, but it also helps that I have already taken several classes in the area that they are learning!
This afternoon I got bored from studying and headed to the local ice cream shop. I thought I knew what I wanted from the last time I was there, but evidently I didn't. When I tried to order, nothing I said was right, so I finally just settled for a 'batido de piña en leche,' or a pineapple shake. It was worth the trouble, and good practice. I guess that made up for me not looking stupid in class today.
Afterwards, I headed to this park, although I couldn't get in because it was locked. It is a part of the church with statues of Mary scattered throughout. It is a pretty cool area with a natural water fall.
They also put flowers up along the fence, I assume as a part of the beginning of Lent.
