Of Costa Rica and Rosetta Stone
On our last trip to San Diego, David and I sought out that screaming yellow kiosk at C Gate in Seatac, with the express purpose of obtaining the Rosetta Stone Latin American Spanish. Success! It took longer than I thought to arrive, but it isn't like we are shipping off to Costa Rica soon...well, we plan a winter vacation there soon!
Ever since we took out Costa Rica trip, we have really wanted to go back again, only this time with the kids and a little more Spanish on the vocab. You can manage pretty well there om English alone, especially the Caribbean side, but it lifts limits of expression having that edge of bilingualism. David does well with his vocab of Spanish, but this is a game changer. Zachary now takes Spanish in ninth grade so together we reached critical mass to justify the full Rosetta Stone package.
The best thing about getting back from Costa Rica was meeting our next door neighbors, who had just moved back to their Vashon home from Costa Rica! They have given us insights and we will visit their tropical home in Guanacaste soon. As a very long term retirement goal. That may be the destination. Doubting any form of social security will exist in 30 years, we have only our nest eggs to rely on and that egg goes much further down south. Until then I am working hard!
