Life in Mexico

Hello my name is Erika. I am 11 years old and I am going to tell you about my Mexico life. Mexico is not what I thought it would be. It is easier than I thought. But there are a few hard things.The hard things are flushing the toilet with a bucket of water, getting sick a lot, not understanding what everybody says, seeing all the poor dogs on the street, and this is the hardest missing my family and friends. I like Mexico so far it has been fun seeing all the new things and learning Spanish. I don't have any friends here except for my cousins because I am not allowed out of the metal gate in front of their yard unless I am with an adult because I could get hurt or stolen.My cousins names if you were wondering are Ilse 20 years old, Fernanda 16 years old, and Lalo 14 years old and that's it. I have been here for a month and it has been super fun. My mom got me the coolest bed it is a work place at the bottom and a bed at the top. We painted it green and blue it looks really pretty. My mom bought me and my sister Mia each a glass fuzzy pig mine is brown with a white stripe down the middle. Mia's is orangish pink with dark orange ears. We put them on our tables under our bed. They are so cute. I have two dogs named Boi and Rocket they are doing fine except they keep biting my cousin's dog Terry. There is a graveyard we go to because my aunt Isabel's husband died because he had diabetes. I have to be really careful when I get water from the cement box were we keep our water because if my hands are dirty I could get everybody in the house sick and if my hands are soapy and I get it in the bucket I could kill everybody and that would not be good. There are also lots of flies and spiders one night while my mom was on her computer a spider walked across her face. On Sundays we go to the market to buy fruit and veggies like apples, oranges lots of oranges to make orange juice, we also buy bananas sometimes I find two bananas in one peel its really funny. We buy lots of other fruit like pineapple, watermelon and much more. Well that's it for my life in Mexico until next week. BYE. There are a few pictures of my bed and double bananas.

  1. Erika, I love what you wrote! I sometimes have the same problems in Guatemala: especially mosquitoes, spiders and getting sick from eating certain food. You are so lucky to be on such a BIG ADVENTURE. This experience will make you WAY COOLER than any of your friends in the US. Learning a new language and a new culture is the best! I wish I could have moved to Mexico when I was your age. Tamara

  6. What a good post, that is very true about the hand washing, especially here , it will help you from not getting sick so much, nobody likes the toilet flushing, or the water in the sisterna, or the bugs! We use a lot of bug spray in our house! Hopefully you and my kids can play soon and you can have some friends,
