  • Seems it just takes a Saturday evening walk to a park-full of playful perros and some time by a lovely fountain to remember that it's summertime in January. I'm in a foreign country in a completely separate hemisphere from my own, and my only real responsibility in being here is to learn and appreciate as much of the language and culture as possible. That is quite a good deal.
