¡Movimiento aparte gringas, las Latinas están aquí!
Gracias iMaria for bringing us all together this weekend! I didn't know it was possible to have such a fun time with strangers, but after celebrating Mariita's birthday with Anita and iMaria at a salsa bar, and then meeting up with Sophia and Fabiana today for lunch, true friendships are just sometimes instantaneous :) iMaria is Mother Ines's niece from Guatemala who is studying at Cornell University, and we have been in touch for the past 3 years but never actually met in person. So, she invited me to join her in celebrating Mariita's birthday in NYC (Mariita is from Honduras) where iMaria's friends Anita, Sophia, and Fabiana, (all from Guatemala) also joined us throughout the weekend! 4 Guatemalans, 1 Honduran, and 1 American all living it up in the city that never sleeps.....so true :) We are already planning a reunion!
