Best teaching gig evaaah....el millor treball d'ensenyar mai.

Check these out:  Mira-les:

See the close up?  I més a prop?

These are 150 year old hand painted tiles, framed.  They were a gift from a friend who we have been helping with English for the last couple of weeks.  The one who got the job as a tour guide, and wanted to brush up his English a bit?  The one who's taken us on three different tours of BCN?  I mean really, lovely company, learning lots of new stuff about BCN, getting to visit it all, and then this gift?  Excellent.  All I had to do was correct some English!

Són rajoles amb unes 150 anys d'antiguitat....pintat a mà i posat en una marc.  Estan un regal que ens va donar un amic.  Hem estat ajudant-li amb anglès aquests últims setmanes.  El que ha guanyat feina com una guia turístic i volia millorar el seu anglès.  El que ens va portar per tres tours de BCN?  Vull dir, seriosament, bon company, hem après molt de BCN que no vam saber abans, hem fet visites - guiades - i un regal a sobre?  I tot el que havia de fer era corregir una mica d'anglès!


Pretty cool, no?  Impressionant, no?

Thank you so very much, if your reading.  Moltíssimes gràcies si estas llegint.

They are beautiful.   Són molt maques.  Però molt.

I guess "you reap what you sow" also works in a positive context, then :)

Gorgeous! And I've been loving the BCN tour photos, too!

Lovely! The way geometrics fit together is so . . . comforting. And these are nice and organic, too.
