In the Matter of an Hour
That continues to be the norm. One will ask you your name in English, then another, then another, then, well you get the idea. On Friday they swarmed the bench to ask questions.
Then, I turned the tables and asked them their names. I also asked where they were from. Most were from Leon, Guanajuato. The politeness of each and every child is mesmerizing. They ALWAYS say "Thank you" and listen attentively. They always say "Good bye" and wave. I'm impressed. Lotsa kids with lotsa smiles.
But, I must admit, no two days are alike in the jardin in San Miguel. Well, at least not yet and I've been doing this for almost 15 years.
