Asian food in South America?

Hi friends!

I hope you´re all doing well. For those of you in North America, I hope you´re enjoying your spring weather! Fall is in full swing here. It´s super funny because in the afternoon it´s really hot and the world is green with palm trees but in the morning and evening it is COLD! We sleep in our thermals and with three blankets and so far it has sufficed, but winter starts next month and it´s supposed to get even worse…yikes!
We had yet another busy week this week, what with knocking doors and appointments and all. We had an activity with the youth where we made my mother´s super delicious brownies! This recipe will soon go viral in all of South America.
We had splits this week and I was able to hang out with Hna. Undurraga and learn a TON from her. She is so cool, and she told me about this place in La Paz called Tiwanaku. Yáll should look it up, I think it would interest you all incredibly the significance of this place. 😉
So this week I received a giant cae package from my ever-loving mother (THANK YOU!) and it contained some pretty awesome goodies. I now have a new sketchbook, and I also bought some watercolors (only 2 bucks!) so now I´m once again on the painting game, woohoo! Mom also sent me mochi — for those of you who don´t know, mochi is this asian food made with rice flour and red bean paste, and it´s dessert. I´m pretty sure this was the first time in recorded history that mochi has been in South America. Well, I shared my mochi with hermana Acevedo, and also filmed her reaction as she ate hr first—and LAST — mochi ever. She could not get over the fact that she was eating BEANS, and when I told her it was dessert, she asked, “are you sure they don´t give this to children as a punishment?” Haha! Well, at least I get to eat more mochi para mí.
I love you all so much, stay cool kids!
