Practicing Spanish

I must have English written on my forehead.   Almost everywhere I went the people would speak English to me.   I finally started to pretend not to understand them and tell them that I spoke a little Spanish.   They would then speak slowly and distinctly in Spanish which gave me the opportunity to practice listening to and speaking Spanish. 

My time in Spain seemed long as I looked at it from home.  As I flew home, I realized just how short it really was.  So little time to learn and practice Spanish and yet I feel that I have made great strides.  The trip was a success and I will return.   Longer and more countries next time. 

The rain started as I left….?tears?

Next stop Honduras . …
