Dave made some interesting statements this week about visiting folks in Latin America.  I especially loved how the children would ‘screen’ the parents visitors.  Have you ever tried to visit someone who had a locked gate in front of their house?  This is actually quite common.  You have to clap your hands to imitate knocking on the door.  Once the occupant deems you worthy of entering their house, they unlock the gate so you can enter.  Since most houses aren’t insullated, it must be easy to hear the clapping from the sidewalk. 

I hope you enjoy learning more each weed about Latin American culture.  I know I am!

I’ve never really been one to keep current on fútbol (soccer).  However, this year was a little different for me.  Not sure if there was just nothing else on the tube, but I was keeping  a closer look on my favoite teams.  I’ve always rooted for  Brazil and Spain. 

Here in the US, we aren’t quite as extreme as other countries.  I remember hearing of many riots in other countries after their teams were sent packing.  It amazed me that people would be so upset that they would cause public damage and harm to those in their way. 

However, those who win, play hard afterwards.  This year, when Spain won the World Cup in South Africa, it seemed like the country partied for weeks.  It was so great to see a country gather and celebrate together. 

Have you had any experiences with this sort of thing?  I love to hear from you!

This week Dave talked about land in Mexico.  There are many American  companies that have plants in Mexico.  This increases the need to learn Spanish for those who travel to Mexico for work.

My husband recently joined the Air Force and we may have the opportunity in the future to travel abroad.  What experiencing have you had that required you to move abroad for work, or pleasure?  How long till you were able to adjust with the language barrier?

I’d love to hear stories of your experiences.
