J.J. and I will be visiting Northern Spain and Portugal for the next two and half months. This is the longest overseas stay since the two of us retired.
I have been spending at least 30 minutes a day practicing Spanish using Duolingo. I am hopeful that our conversation in Spain with the locals will go more smoothly this time.
For the last three days, J.J. and I stayed with my Mother. She has made a remarkable recovery and I enjoyed our daily conversations.
Since it would be difficult for us to promise how often I can call, I wrote 5 letters with drawings and asked our son to mail them to her at regular intervals.
I also made updated prints of our family which she prefers over email photos. I will have lots of stories to share with her upon our return.
