Learn Spanish in the Amazon or Blue Ridge


We have added a  3 Day Super Thinking + Spanish Camp to be conducted September 21, 22 and 23 at our North Carolina farm  on Little Horse Creek.

(or learn in St, Louis, Vernon BC Canda or Washington DC)

In these busy times the farm is a peaceful quiet place to learn.

Here is Little Horse Creek.

The creek starts on our land… fed by dozens of pure water springs. It feeds the pond below our main house where guests meet and flows past our deep woods seminar hall where we learn together.

The leaf change will have begun…(Saturday, Sept. 22 is the first day of Fall)…enjoy the beauty of golden leaves.

Enjoy sunrise views.

and crisp mountain morns… maybe even a little frost.

Yet afternoons are sunny so we can visit the views from the woods and even…

take a little relaxation in the sun… since we use relaxation techniques in the teaching of Spanish.

We’ll have picked plenty of mountain blackberries by then so I expect Merri will have a pie or two (maybe four) cooked up for us when we…

come up to our house for afternoon tea.

The Super Thinking + Spanish course is the same as always but seriously limited to the number of delegates due to the nature of our seminar hall.

One great way to get paid to travel to places you desire is as a Super Thinking + Spanish teacher.  Spiro Michas enjoyed conducting a Super Spanish course when he visited Uruguay. Glenn Sterling always wanted to visit the Amazon so he organized course there.

Here is a report from Glenn on the first Amazon Spanish Camp he conducted.

Getting There – To the Amazon or Bust

By Glenn Sterling

Arriving was 99% of the adventure.  We’d flown from Quito, Ecuador.

We flew next morning for a half hour flight to Coca (named after a local Indian Community ) a city of about 60,000.

This was our Aerogal flight to Coca.

This bus was waiting for us at the Coca Airport.

The bus took us to Coca and once there we loaded onto a boat and donned life jackets.

Our seatbacks were slid into place and we began the 2.5 hour journey down the broad, shallow, silt-laden Napo River.

The weather is never chilly here but is frequently blessed with warmish showers.  Our ride was no exception, so we were wet but warm and our rears comforted by the deep foam seat bottoms.

There were lots of odd boats on the Napo, a tributary of the Amazon River. One had been a jet!

In the Amazon, the river IS the highway.

Our guide, leader and naturalist, Rodrigo, showed us how to open a unique local fruit we’d found in our yummy, bagged lunches.  Bottled water accompanied our snack.

We sped downriver dodging islands of debris, tree stumps, clumps of floating grass and other items.

The river was widening as its banks collapsed from swollen waters and frequent rains.  Daunesh said “Hey, it’s a rain forest.”  It was.

We were never alone on the river.

The ponchos kept us dry.

Finally we felt alone in the jungle when we were led to a 15 minute walk down a boardwalk trail into the Amazon jungle.

Daunesh was among the first to arrive at our canoes and soon our Armada struck off through a narrow waterway.

The water way led to the open waters of Lake Garcocha (Heron lake in Quicha).

In another 10 minutes we arrived at the lodge on the edge of the lake.

They had refreshing drinks and mouth watering snacks awaiting us  and after the travel adventure our appetites were ready.
