While traveling through Spain I had the good fortune to be able to participate in two English immersion programs, Vaughan Town and Pueblo Ingles, respectively. Each week was magical, and nothing could have prepared me for the emotions I would feel after working so closely with these inspiring Spaniards.
I suddenly thought that maybe this was my mother crying out for help. Maybe she's selling Viagra on the side, living undercover in Madrid, or trying to set up an adoption. The other reality might be one of the scariest things that can happen to tech-savvy elderly parents: getting hijacked on their computers.
