I’ve been able to put our hands in the nest of the fire ends for at least five minutes without feeling any pain all right that was one of them once our native people realized that it exists all the kind of western clothing in the world.
So they loved that, and especially if a clothing it was a mostly case as a t-shirt had an English word in front, and that was you know something interesting. Because we used to say oh look at this a gringo gave me this, and everybody felt really proud of that, and everybody running on the right, and through the community saying look at my t-shirt. This is a gringo t-shirt.
I’m wearing a gringa teacher, and some people from Lima decide to create also these gringo teachers put in nasty words you know in front of course nobody spoke English, and nobody knew what was the meaning of that part of my life you know being in Lima it was very tough. Because the university that. I attend it was a private university where people normally had a lot of money, and they were descendant of wealthy people families or what the families.
I was So and I was not. So it was hard to make friends.
