Rachel’s blog: Mendoza, Argentina

Rachel is blogging from Mendoza, Argentina this fall semester.

Here is an excerpt from one of her recent posts.

“Sundays are big family days in Mendoza. It involves big family reunions, a lot of food, and a full day of Spanish practice for me. Today 18 people came over for lunch.  I woke up this morning to Carlina preparing for the big meal, and together we tried to fit a second table into the dining room through a doorway that was probably four inches too narrow to fit the table. We had to give up after taking it all apart and realizing that the frame of the table still wouldn’t fit. Instead we fit 18 people around their dining room table and one other small plastic table from outside.”
