smiles and tortillas in return for our fledgling Spanish
On our first trip to Guatemala, (pre-digital era), my wife spoke rudimentary Spanish and I was far from fluent. In return for our fledgling language skills, this girl gave us a warm smile...and perfectly smoky tortillas as well. A few years later, we would return; my head-start in the language had disappeared, as my wife's Spanish had caught up to mine; we could finally both communicate with ease. Handmade tortillas and friendly smiles would become mainstays during the year we lived in Central America...
