Aqui estoy ... deseando feliz dia a todas las madres

Happy Mother's Day to my wonderful mommy in the US, mi mama peruana, and all the women who have been like mothers to me from family to friends to professors to ladies at church and Emmaus. <3

Mother's day is big in Peru, by the way. (Even Domino's gets in on it. And the various casinos whose doorways are now decorated in red and pink balloons and hearts) Family in general is important but Mama is up top. Children often remain in their parents' house into their twenties and thirties, often until they get married.

I spent the day with my host mom and her daughter and family. :)

Hasta la proxima
