Graduation day! For the first week anyway. The immersion classes are structured to be 20 hours in a week with extra curriculars and practice and then you finish. We all got certificates in a little ceremony with our teachers and fellow students and now we get two days off to practice before we’re back at it on Monday.
To celebrate and to get a little extra practice we let the kids decide which shop they wanted to visit. Not surprisingly they picked Confiticos Liberia (confectionery Liberia) otherwise known as a candy store.
They each picked some things that look familiar and some that are unusual, we’ll see if they find a new favorite as they eat it over the next few days. CreeperPuppy bought what looked like chocolate coins but when he opened one the inside was creamy looking and it turned out to be chewing gum. The flavor was slightly fruity but not very sweet at all. Not his preference but Tiffany chewed a piece for 5-10 minutes before the flavor started turning bitter and she threw it away.
Brian ended up running to the store for dinner supplies and got a little treat of his own in the form of some Jack Daniels Tennessee Honey.
Perhaps inspired by our music class yesterday Brian turned on the TV when we got home to find a movie we could use for some practice. What do you find on Friday afternoon? It’s a 2003 Ben Stiller and Drew Barrymore movie rated 40% on Rotten Tomatoes. Not a good film, but the chance to see Ben Stiller deliver a dubbed monologue and try to keep up with the Espanol including subtitles kept us interested for at least 5 minutes.
A little channel flipping and Brian happened upon a pre-season NFL game with his beloved Detroit Lions – in English to boot. (Perhaps the timing of the TV being on wasn’t quite an accident).
Dinner of shrimp and pasta and a couple episodes of Lego Masters and we’ll be ready to say goodnight to our second Friday night in Costa Rica.
