NUOVO BLOG

Hey there all! Hope the new year has been going well so far still. If it hasn’t been quite what you’ve expected so far, remember it’s still the beginning haha. I’m sure there are many different ways you can improve your start to the year. I’ve really enjoyed it so far!
So I’ve been in Central America for the week! It’s been so great! I was in Guatemala for my first time during the beginning of the week, and I just landed in Honduras today which is where my mom is from! So I am amongst the people that make up the other half of my blood. After landing, we went straight to visit some of my mom’s family and got to spend time with them. It was great! And we’ve been having baleadas to eat! Which is a native dish here that is sort of like a burrito haha. I don’t remember if I mentioned this before but my mom is actually down here with me, and it’s been awesome having her here.
If you were wondering why I’m down here, it is because I was invited to come down and see what an organization called Enterprise Mentors was all about. It’s an organization that helps families who struggle with poverty become self-reliant and make a living. We’ve been meeting with several of the families and seeing how it’s affected them. It’s really neat and touching to see how different other people’s lives can be from ours. We take so much for granted way too often in our lives, and it’s amazing the way people live. It amazed me to see how happy they are when they see improvement in their work, and these people are hard workers! If you want to learn more about what I’ve been learning about you can go to www.enterprise-mentors.org. It’s a neat cause that gives people that push and encouragement they need to start their own businesses, and become successful after coming from so little.
Aside from meeting with families and having other meetings, while in Guatemala we were able to go to Antigua which is a beautiful historical city. It was a lot of fun walking around and feeling like we went back into time. We also have been enjoying the food here, and being around the people. I wish we had more time to spend down here! But I’ve been loving it! My mom doesn’t want to leave, and I don’t either lol. But I guess that’s all the more reason to come back! We still have quite a bit we’re doing down here this week, and meeting with more people. And the little kids are so cute! haha. Sometimes we hand out lollipops and they come swarming around you.
Well we’re headed out again, but I just wanted to drop a quick note and let you guys know what I’ve been up to! I’m really sorry that I haven’t updated you guys with a blog lately, but it’s been a little difficult coming across internet and time at the same time haha. But I’ll be sure to let you know the rest of what goes on this week later on! I’ll try and show some pictures too, even though I look nasty and need a haircut REALLY bad! But anyway, until next time. Hasta luego!
Song for the day: Mi Tierra – Gloria Estefan This is a song my mom performs every now and then. She actually performed it at one of the events we had down here.
