Tuesday is one of my very busy days as I teach both morning and afternoon/evening classes. I leave at seven in the morning and do not get back to the apartment till around eight in the evening. It makes for a very long and tiring day but it is time well spent and leaves me excited as well as tired by the time the day draws to a close.

Most people in the United States are now familiar with the Latin American custom of the quinceaÃ±era, where the fifteenth birthday is a big event, especially for girls. The family will often throw a lavish party for their daughter with all sorts of meaningful customs, such as the custom where the father kneels before his daughter and puts a pair of high heeled shoes on her, symbolizing that she is coming of age. Every girl looks forward to her quinceaÃ±era party with great anticipation. Here in Latin America, the fifteenth birthday is a very important and meaningful event.
