From the Managing Editor
I have spent some time in Rio de Janeiro last fall, and I have often wondered during the intervening months why it took me until then to make my first visit to Latin America. I have yet to come up with a satisfactory answer, but I do know that I won't wait another lifetime to go back, especially after preparing this issue. From Ron Mader's comprehensive Latin American travel planner, with country-by-country updates by the editors of the Latin American Travel Advisor, to Susan Griffith's extensive "Latin American Links", on teaching in the region, to Roger Edwards memories of his life-changing homestay in Costa Rica, I've spent the last two months plotting ways to make a return trip as soon as possible!
But it hasn't only been the call of Latin America that has made it so hard to get this issue to the printer. Every time I sat down to edit the Language Program Directory I got distracted. Why couldn't I run off to Tuscany and study Italian? Then I would remember that I had to get these programs into your hands, so you can run off to your own dream destination.
If you find that May/June issue puts ideas into your head, just wait. Our next issue is the Overseas Travel Planner covering travel worldwide--it will show you how to make those dreams real!
