I was looking through “The Travel Book,” and I wondered how many countries I could visit, if I only knew how to speak Spanish.  I counted 21 different countries. Things that I would really like to go do and see, if I could only go to places where people speak Spanish, are:

  • Boat out to Isla del Sol, home of the ancient Incas, on Lake Titicaca (the world’s highest lake), in Bolivia;
  • Paddle through a maze of jungle canals, thick with wildlife, in Costa Rica;
  • Go wildlife watching in the Galapagos Islands, in Ecuador;
  • Go surfing at Punta Roca, in El Salvador;
  • See lost Mayan temples climbing above the jungle canopy at Tikal, in Guatemala;
  • Feel the breeze of a billion butterfly wings at Reserva Mariposa Monarca, in Mexico;
  • Climb Cerro Negro, then sand-board down its soft slopes, in Nicaragua;
  • Visit Machu Picchu, in Peru!!!!!!!!!;
  • Swim in the shallow, sandy beaches of Palomino Island, in Puerto Rico; and
  • Visit Gaudi’s Barcelona, in Spain — and of course, see a Barcelona soccer match while we are there.

The countries that have French as an official language are:

In Central America:  Costa Rica, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, Mexico, Nicaragua, Panama

In South America:  Argentina, Bolivia, Chile, Colombia, Ecuador, Paraguay, Peru, Uruguay, Venezuela

In the Caribbean:  Cuba, Dominican Republic, Puerto Rico

In Europe:  Spain

In Africa: Equatorial Guinea
