A group photo in Las Brisas
Last Sunday, after our project at the foundation in the barrio, Brisas de las Palmas, everyone had their hand painted and then they made a hand print on the banner. My print is the large red one at the top and to the right of the word, nuestro. Then everyone posed for a group photo. Tomorrow, I’m going up again to the barrio. I enjoy photographing the kids and getting to know them.
Today, I worked on my Spanish. I have a lot to read in our book. We’re reading a book called, Yo, Malinche, La Conquista de México. It’s slow going since I’m constantly looking up words I don’t know in the dictionary. But, the story is interesting and I’m learning a lot of new vocabulary. At the end of each chapter, there are some questions we have to answer. In class, we read the chapter out loud and make sure we all understand everything. Then, we go over the answers to the questions.
Cali sometimes seems like a small town to me. Today, I was out walking and ran into at least three people I knew. Each time, we stopped to talk for awhile. It’s nice.
