A Gift from the Nile

I’ve been warned that learning Spanish (or any new language) is a roller-coaster ride. How true!

It was getting manageable last week but this Monday I was ‘promoted’ to another class with far better students and what a struggle it had been.

Couldn’t take it anymore yesterday. Sneaked out for fresh air during class break. Wandered across the street to a park with ancient Egyptian monuments – The Templo de Debod.

The Templo de Debod was constructed in the 2nd century near the Nile River and bequeathed by Egypt in 1968 to Spain for her contribution in saving historical sites in the Great Dam of Aswan project.

What a sight to behold!

Having feasted on the ancient beauty and the beautiful park, I rushed back to school to sit through the laborious Spanish grammar with a new vigour.
