Hey gringo

We had homework last night.

Each of the class has been given a World Cup team to support, and the teacher wanted them to know a bit about their respective countries. S's team/country is Mexico, (although she says she wants England and Ireland to win really :)).

It was quite interesting looking it up on the web together. We found a Mexico for Kids site with information about the people, food, clothing and some of the mythology and traditions. Instead of there being a man in the moon, there is a laughing rabbit. So we printed that story out for her to take, and some pictures of embroidered clothes. Although their official language is Spanish, there are 62 living languages spoken in Mexico.

And tequila, it makes you happy. :D
