WHAT question from America...
What is your family like?
|My Training Host Village Family|
My Tina is here all the time either cooking, cleaning or waiting for me to get back from doing whatever I was doing. She is great and we get along! Our conversations are strained since she speaks very little English and I speak even less Samoan. However- we still laugh A LOT and somehow manage to keep fun conversations and a great relationship. At times we struggle when we have certain things we need to ask or get across. I did not realize that is was just as frustration to her as it is to me until one discussion we were failing at she said, "I just wish I could talk to you." It really made me take a step back and see her differently than I have looked at her before. I really love my Training Host Mother and am very very sad to leave her.
My Tama I hardly see. He works at the Plantation and is a really hard worker. Sometimes he comes over and brings me fresh mango or pineapple from the plantation. Those are my favorite days when I see him!
|LOVE these two!!|
