The past couple of weeks I have been spending my mornings at the Hogar de Ancianas (a home for elderly women) here. It is another way to practice what I have learned in my weeks of language school. Most mornings, I help some of them get to breakfast, then after breakfast I help them to the room where many like to sit in the sun to get warm. Then I might help in the kitchen, the laundry, or other miscelaneous tasks. When there is not a job for me, I sit with the ladies and talk with them. Around lunch time, I help get the ladies to the dining room and then assist in serving lunch. Helping out is a way to practice my Spanish, but it is also a good reminder that getting old is not for the faint of heart.
