So, Anyway… Yo Hablo Espanol

A note from the Publisher: The Costa Rica Blog Network has chosen to feature the following article for its exploration of the author’s varied background, and the role that the Spanish language (in part influenced by Costa Rican education) plays in it. Thanks to Michelle for submitting her personal account to us. We hope that in cooking in your own kitchen you have incorporated that “beautiful fresh what-is-the-name-of-that-gorgeous-thing produce” that you fell in love with while in Costa Rica. Pura vida!
