We spent the day in Columbus, Ohio on Monday. It turned out to be a beneficial time for our French because we visited an African store. As soon as we entered the store, we could tell that we had walked into a cultural event as people spoke numerous languages, bartered for their food and socialized with the others.
We bought some seasonings for a friend, and met some of the shoppers who were speaking French. In fact, the owner was from, you guessed it, Guinea!!
Some of the others recommended the ginger juice. So, we took their advice and tried the ginger juice. It was spicy but delicious!
It was a good opportunity for us to practice our French, and we continue to look for ways to keep the language alive in our minds.
