As I have mentioned before I had a wonderful time staying at Doña Victoria’s house while in Esteli. As a grandma, many of the members of her family live on the block and her house is full of laugher and love. She and her family treated me as an extension of the family. We danced, celebrated birthdays, played cards, and had many a pick-up soccer game in the streets. I hope to return this upcoming year with a small group of students. I was particularly in love with her little kitten. I spent many nights reading and writing at her kitchen table with the kitten “mancha” purring, sleeping, or playing in my lap.
