Then we went to lunch in a families home. The mother cooked us an amazing lunch. I was once again nervous because they did not speak any English. This allowed us to practice our Spanish with her. I was expecting to actually eat with the family but instead, the mother just cooked for us and let us eat while she did other things around the house and with her children. In the future, I would like to talk to her and her children and get to know them better. We learned a little about her but if we are spending a good amount of time together it would be nice to get to know a little more. The mother made rice, beans, chicken, as well as two potato like vegetables. It was delicious. I am so grateful that she is taking time to cook us such an amazing meal and allowing us to come into her home. I am looking forward to this time every day during the week. It is somewhat scary going into La Cienega to get there though. I am not used to the poverty. It is just such a sad sight and I do not think anyone could really get used to it. But one thing is for sure, the family may have be in poverty but they were so happy and excited to have us and so happy in general. Seeing them like this keeps reminding me that I am and should be thankful for everyday and everything I have in my life.
