La enseñanza de la lengua española en los Estados Unidos

The Instituto Cervantes has created a marvellous website where they've uploaded numerous video conferences about various issues related to the teaching of Spanish.  My discussion with Dr. Ofelia García about teaching Spanish in the U.S. is available at the link below. 

Paria Canyon

Paria canyon is a remote canyon wilderness area that spans from Southern Utah into Northern Arizona.  It is probably the most spectacular slot canyon formation in the world and makes for an incredible 5(ish) day hiking adventure.

There are no facilities along the route, no cell signals, and no established trail in many areas. Access to fresh water is limited to springs encoutered along the way.
