This is the best day EVER! I scarf down my frijoles de la olla,* grab my bag, and run out the door to catch up with the other girls. It's the first day of school! My cousins in another district have been going for years, but we never had a school near enough to our house. Now the Christians have started one. I'm going to learn how to read!
*Frijoles de la olla: literally "beans in a pot," this is perhaps the most common dish in Mexico.
