Back to school....Mexican style
What that means is waking at 5:45, leaving the boat on a dinghy to school by 6:30, and even wearing a uniform! And we thought getting to school on time at 8:20 was hard. Hah! The kids are seemingly getting much more interested in speaking Spanish, asking every evening about what this or that means. It's fun to hear their stories about how strict or funny their teachers are. It's also good to hear the complaints...about how hard the chairs are, how loud the fan is or how there is not a real lunch hour. Makes me hopeful that they will be more respectful and grateful for school in back home in California.
