After church this morning we had the family from Venezuela over to our house for dinner.
i really loved it.
we hit it off really well and the kids all played happily which gave me a chance to speak with Antonio and practice my spanish. At one point i had to remind myself that i was actually talking spanish.
One bit of cultural difference which i found interesting was that in Venezuela people don't shorten their names to make them more informal. Antonio , por ejemplo, is never shortened to Toni. He found it funny how my names is shortened from Andrew to Andy and sometimes to And.
they're a lovely family and i hope we remain friends.
- mucho gusto
