Domingo Tranquilo

85 °F

I have no major updates, just some photos. While life here is sure to be turbulent, my emotions as varying as a basket of fruit, I am happy. I think mainly because I have/am beginning to feel comfortable being myself here. I was so willing and ready to assimilate, to be what I needed to be to be accepted. But now I am finding, that no matter where I am or where life takes me, I only need be myself to be happy and ecstatic to find that that is enough for the people in my life here as well.

Entonces, vive la loca!

So first are some photos of my first 15th birthday. Kind of a big deal here. Its a girl's right of passage into that glorious womanhood.

Claudette with her father

Some of her admirers....

Dancing with her bro. One of my students.

All the teachers and Claudette.

Her ridiculously awesome cake.

Me and Claudette. Then Hannah and Claudette.

Then, me and Luis, her younger brother who is in my 4th grade class.

And then, enter the catrachitas who hijacked my camera this morning for church.

Me and Mari Cruz

And this was supposed to be a picture of me, Hannah, Ms. Betty, Abby, and Ana getting blessed in front of the congregation for our birthdays.....

How my heart sings

Ana Ruth and Ismelda (a fifth grader and a fourth grader)

Then Diana found the zoom button....

Someone find me a big piece of luggage cuz this girl is coming home with me.

Some shots of the streets of San Pedro

Diana and Delmairs

And me and Katherine

Love to all of you, where ever you are, and may you find a way to make your hearts burst the way mine does here.
