The Vivian Album

Dedicated to actress Vivian Ruiz. Images from the 1983 VHS course Survival Spanish. 

1983 was eventful to say the least.  South Korean Boeing 747 jetliner bound for Seoul strays into Soviet airspace and is shot down by a Soviet SU-15 fighter. All 269 aboard are killed. Terrorist explosion kills 237 US Marines in Beirut. US invades Grenada. But it wasn't all bad news. Vivian was asked to host "Survival Spanish" a series of educational programs produced by Miami Dade Community College. Here frozen in time are some better memories.
