Lois Lowry's Blog
I am in Badem, a small town in the Eifel region of Germany, where my granddaughter lives. She is preparing to leave soon for two months in Costa Rica, where she will work in a national park and also on her Spanish at the same time, since in the fall she will enter the University of Trier to major in languages.
Yesterday I was a visitor at the English cłass that my daughter-in-law teaches. Her students are older adults...most of them retired...and it is so impressive and humbling to see these hard-working people who are working so diligently to learn a new language, something that I would find almost impossible, I think. And Englísh is tough!! Picture trying to describe the difference between "must" and "have to"! That's what Margret was doing yesterday.
.Tomorrow I will take the train to Paris where I will spend a week with a friend. In the meantime my house back home is being increasingly stripped and packed as I prepare to move. When jet lag wakes me at 4 AMI start thinking about things like the junk drawer in the kitchen....how to pack those paper clips and batteries and unidentified keys...?
i am writing this on my brand new iPad .... Such a handy thing or travels!
