Wednesday, I went to my second last physio appointment which ended with a soothing massage. Now I have to get busy and exercise more at home.
Then I decided to get the house taxes paid quickly so I caught the #13 downtown and got in the long line-up of seniors at the Etapa office opposite Parque Calderon. Once they got 3 wickets open for us seniors the lineup went rather quickly. Taxes this year went up $9 to $21.12! I don't know whether to be upset or not, lol...
I sleepily watched Canada beat Sweden to get to the finals of the World Junior Championship then had a fitful evening, spent mostly in the recliner downstairs. Trying to wear the neck collar almost 24 hours is not easy, or comfortable.
Today I went for my last physio appointment and Diego kinda likes that I move from exercise to exercise without instruction. He actually asked me to come tomorrow and also to call 140 to shedule another series.... I will get to that soon.
At 2:00 I went for my first Spanish class at Instituto Cuenca and I loved it more than I knew I would. https://www.facebook.com/insticuenca/ Teo is teaching the class exactly as I would, and giving the student the feeling that they can speak Spanish on the first day. Using a few "helper verbs" plus the infinitive of other verbs REALLY simplifies the learning process. I hated being in classes (that always seemed to include former teachers as students) and getting bogged down with conjugations, tenses and pluperfect who-gives-a crap. A lot of it today was going over basics and finding out how advanced I am with my pidgin Spanish. I am really looking forward to the next classes.
Typical January weather in Cuenca with sunny mornings and rain later in the afternoon. It is still the most perfect year-round weather I have encountered.
I hope you enjoy the photos. That was the day's excitement. Cheers, Al
