Torter King

Isn’t this funny?  They are using the logo’s from Burger King and McDonalds.

Mexico 001

I have been bummed about not having more exposure speaking Spanish.  Yesterday I started Spanish sessions with Amer, the father here where I live.

I am paying him for an hour per day.  I go downstairs for an hour while he is working in the store and attempt to interpret conversations with customers and then talk with Amer when there are no customers in the store.  Yesterday he had to go to the bank to make a deposit and he asked me if I wanted to come.  It was a perfect opportunity for me as I still had to change my US Dollars for Pesos.

His bank does not change money so we had to walk another mile or better to another bank.  He was a good sport.  It was the worst experience I have had changing money in another country.  Finally he just had them do it in his name which still was quite a process.

An old student of Kristin’s gave her a candied apple today.  It was covered in chile, tamarind, and sugar made into a sticky substance.  It was another new taste.  It is easy to get addicted to the chili flavor on everything.
