Recently we had some guests in the lodge from Nicaragua and Chili who were fluent in Spanish. The ability to speak multiple languages is a skill I envy so much. I would love to be able to stroll the streets of Paris asking for a baguette or buy fresh fruit from the markets in Mexico with the ease of the local language.
In my mind I have a wonderful fantasy of living in Greece and learning Latin to help me get a grasp on the base of a lot of these languages.
It is not the right time for us to move to Greece, but the day dreaming has brought me back to the amazing six week trip we took through out Costa Rica and a bit into Nicaragua. We took buses all over Costa Rica and hiked into jungles looking for wildlife.
I hear so many amazing travelers tales from from South and Central America. It is a place I cannot wait to go back to. Until that time happens, here’s a walk down memory lane and a look at a some of the amazing wild life we saw while heavily using a dictionary to piece together very bad Spanish.
