Day 27

27 Jun

Today was our last visit to Manchay 😦
We saw our Manchay Momma and daughter Areli one last time and talked about what she had learned and how she could incorporate it into her life. We also gave her a cookbook and some presents for her baby. Towards the end of our talk she asked why Aimee and I weren’t talking very much and we had to explain that we could understand a lot of what she was saying, but couldn’t really speak spanish. She thought this was funny, and started asking questions about where we were from and what we did. She asked me if I wanted to be Areli’s godmother! Cutet moment ever 🙂 She told us to come back and visit her, which was kind of heartbreaking because we never will again.

Tonight we went to an amazing chicken place with a really horrible waiter, but the chicken and cooked salad were so delicious it was worth it. Not much else to report besides we are all getting sad that this adventure is almost over. It’s definitely bittersweet.

The Struggle: Only 2 more days left with our group!

The Silver Lining: We lived in and experienced everything we could in a foreign country together and got to know each other more than you can imagine in just 4 weeks.
