Spanish Class Field Trip
John and I joined Carolina, our Spanish teacher, and classmates for a field trip to the Empalme Tianguis (flea market). It was quite the cultural experience! John and I found all kinds of goodies to buy - a small metal patio table (la mesa), a hoover vacuum cleaner (la aspiradora), a hand saw (la sierra mano). We drank hibiscus tea with ice (agua de jamaica). It was great fun and great way to practice asking for things in Spanish, for talking numbers and pesos in Spanish, and for having fun generally. Here's a little film of our experience.
