FAMILIES: They are straight from Heaven. Kind, loving, generous and willing to open
their humble homes to you just for stopping by. Plus they always have puppies,
and have a fantastic personality that makes you miss your own family at home.

KIDDIES: Yes, all these adorable kiddies are my favorite. I really wish
I could just spend all day with them, laughing and playing and making jokes. The great
thing about kids is their Spanish is more my level - simple conversations and basics, which
helps me along in my ability to communicate. Plus they like to ask questions -
which I love!

HOMES: The people I work with live in humble homes in the countryside. Let me tell you,
these people are incredible. They know how to live within their means and make the best
with what they have. I love the creative designs they come up with and how they use their space -
it is quite impressive indeed and I love their kitchens the most. Simple and rustic.

PUPPIES: They´re everywhere! Everywhere, I tell you!

OLD PEOPLE: I just want to adopt every single old person as my own grandparent.
I just love them all so much. I don´t quite know how they do it - there is something
about a wise twinkle in their eye and their wrinkly smiles that I just can´t resist loving.
