My second fiesta at site was this past week. FIESTA, YAY!!! haha, kind of. At times fiesta gets old to me. There can be so many of them, and so many people, and so much food... it's just so much. But this fiesta felt different from the others, and I guess it's because I was more "part of the crowd."
Last year I stuck with my host family the whole time. I didn't know what to expect, what to do, it was all new. This year though, I ventured off on my own more. It felt good to get invited to the house of one of my students and then get called into more houses as people saw me walking by. I was honored to be invited into people's homes for the staple fiesta meal: spaghetti, cake, lechon, coke, and so on. Good times.
