I hit a snag

I finally got to a lesson in Swahili that had a bunch of unfamiliar words. The past few days I have been a little under the weather anyway, add to that that this isn't the absolute best learning style for me. But it could be worse. (Spoken like a true Minnesotan.) Today we came to a lesson in directions: as in north (kaskasini), south (kusini), east (mashariki) and west (magharibi). And this is in the direction of that, and so on. Other new words included the word for map, coast (I actually knew that one, tarmac, river, lake etc. And all this after a lesson in numbers that included a ton of math! Yuck!

I would say I am truly taxed and ready for the Easter break.
