Every once in a while, it's a good idea to take evaluation. Today I had my first language evaluation in Paraguay. I had two or three when I was in Mexico, and they really help to know how much language I have learned and retained. It also helps to know what I should begin studying next! Today's evaluation is, in a sense, preliminary; now I will know what I need to study, relearn (I've lost a lot of vocabulary & verb usage in the past 18 months), and a general starting point for my Spanish study here in Paraguay.
And, to celebrate, when I got home I ate a celebratory dinner: rice & beans with Guarana.
By far, one of my favorite meals.
PS--I made the beans in my pressure cooker! The fear of the pressure cooker is dissipating. :-)
