My Two Kilos Of Pot From Chiapas, Mexico

¨*¨*¨*¨*¨*¨*¨*¨*¨*¨

This week, at long last, my friends Duncan and Joy delivered my 2 kilos of pot from their place in San Cristobal, Chiapas Mexico. I had been freaking out…waiting and waiting ( you know how it is!? ) right ? The long wait had been a bummer, but at last I can just kick back and contemplate my new stash ! And as I am one to always share my stash…here are a few pictures.  I think you will see why I have such a silly grin on my face right now ! ( the last picture is not of me, of course ) !!! Its a picture of the young Mayan woman who created my pot…..

DINA and her kids……………..

^^^^^^^^^^^

DINA and one of her 3rd grade classes

My good friend Dina teaches English in the ESCUELA PRIMARIA  FEDERAL–CIUDAD de TLACOTALPAN.

She had this great idea..a project  to help her 3rd graders with some basics.  And, WOW, what a reaction she got ! Now all her students, through the 6th graders want to participate!

She had them create a barnyard scene, with all the animals named in English.

Some of these children come from homes that are hard pressed to be able to fund these extra projects, but as you will see…this does not dampen their imagination or enthusiasm. Some can not afford the extra Pesos per week for this English class, so Dina happily includes all who want to learn. God bless her. Here are a few photos of their completed projects….

As you probably could tell…some barnyards were labeled in English, some in Spanish, and some….not labeled at all. NO MATTER. After show and tell, with each item in each barnyard called out loud ( in English ) by the whole class..A certificate of achievement was given to each student who completed the project. What a fun way to harness that short attention span of a classroom of 3rd graders and teach at the same time. BRAVO, Dina !
