On Friday morning we cycled to our Spanish school on Madero, "Se Habla...La Paz" for a special event. We were presented with our Diplomas "por su participacion en clases en el curso immersion total en el idioma español con una duracion de 22 horas". The school regularly holds an informal graduation ceremony for those who have completed whatever particular series of lessons arranged for and each graduate makes a brief speech, based on their level of fluency.
We are pleased with our efforts, although each day brings another example of what we still have to practice or become familiar with in day to day encounters and shopping. Only the beginning.

- Intrepid II is a Cape Dory Intrepid 40 sailboat, hull #2, designed by Chuck Paine and discovered by the Captain in Blue Hill Maine in 2006. The crew are Kelly (Captain) and Carol (Admiral and Blogger). In 2009 INTREPID II embarked on her West Coast journey from Victoria to San Francisco, the Baja Sur Peninsula and into the Sea of Cortez. In 2010/2011, we sailed ifrom Guaymas, south to Bahia Banderas and back. In 2011/2012 she left Guaymas, headed south to La Paz, spent three weeks at anchor on our northward journey and rested on the hard in San Carlos. Her 4th, 5th and 6th seasons were Boat Projects related. Season 7 - we are hoping to cruise again at long last.
