Love this: “The girls always tell me they work hard in school now so one day their moms won’t have to.”
so remember in junior high when you’d go to the movies or the mall after school with your friends for some fun? well around here we go to buddhist temples
harimaya and her younger sister susila (they’re also on the soccer team) wanted to take me to the buddhist temple near their home. besides the 100 degree heat it was a pretty cool afternoon. harimaya is a servant and lives with another family separate of her sister. they were kind enough to let her have the afternoon off so us girls could spend time at the temple then have tea with harimaya’s mom. i also got to stop by asmita’s house (she’s another 5th grade soccer girl) and meet her mom. it’s so interesting to me how each girl resembles their mother so closely, not just attribute-wise, but their mannerisms and personalities. the girls always tell me they work hard in school now so one day their moms won’t have to.
