Today’s haul.  Pro­cured most­ly in Span­ish. I also booked an appoint­ment to have my teeth cleaned. I came in to town and pick up a few things I want for a vari­ety of projects. One of the most amaz­ing things about spend­ing an extend­ed amount of time in a for­eign coun­try is you are often forced into sit­u­a­tions that require you to learn bits of lan­guage that you wouldn’t touch as a plain tourist. I find this tremen­dous­ly increas­es my con­fi­dence with a lan­guage and makes it far eas­i­er to play the fool for the sake of learn­ing.
