On my birthday, Oct. 11, I explored our backyard (since we couldn’t leave due to the protests) with my two host brothers, Angel and Mateo, and my host cousin, Josue. We walked around the perimeter of the field and they pointed out the different plants and fruits we saw. I also got to visit their clubhouse. These are some pictures I took from our backyard adventures.
