Subjects: Me and Connie
Taken: Two weeks ago at a wedding
She is my host cousin who was born near the end of my first year as an exchange student in Chile. Each time I come back she is the most poinant reminder of how long it has been that I have been traveling to and fro in this country and how long this family has been “mine”.
I wish I had my high school pictures here to juxtapose this with a photo of me in my high school uniform (red, white and green plaid pleated shirt and tie with white button down shirt, black shoes, and navy knee highs) holding a newborn just a few hours old.
