It was coming on very nicely, but sadly our lovely tutor has had to go back to spain for a couple of months - and I was sick last night so missed the meet up - I think we're looking for a new tutor to cover until Isabelle gets back, so fingers crossed!

Hola...hope you're feeling better Claire. We took some unilateral action and posted for a tutor (we did so badly without Isabel to keep us on the straight and narrow - too distracted by pad thai mmmm and, well most anything else...) but no takers as yet : ( People in the gym look at me strangely as I mutter (probably incorrect) Spanish verb conjugations through my sweat....

I've defected to E9 temporarily, but would still be up for Spanish conversation some time.

Yes, sorry, had very bad reaction to flu jab - which I did want in the first place, but somehow got talked into! I know for next time! I'll see if I can find anyone as well - I'm going to e:mail Isabelle, and she may know someone. Catch up soon! :O)

Yes - thank you. Everyone in my office looked at me very strangely.

I just played it for the office cleaner - but she's Bolivian.

Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid died in Bolivia.

About 10 years ago they did an archaeolgical excavation in the Bolivian equivalent of "Boot Hill" on two graves of Americans from the right time frame. Everything was going well - right studs from the jeans, right nails from the boots etc (except that "Butch" seemed a little tall, but no big deal) they alerted the worlds press and everyone and his Aunt trogged off to Bolivia (not the easiest of journies) to cover the story. Anyway, they finally got around to doing facial reconstructions from the skulls and it turned out that they were two complete unknowns (Butch & Sundance having been photographed - albeit in sepia - quite comprehensively during their lifetimes.) Turns out they weren't the only "Banditos Americanos" after all ...
