So the following day after the Mall Fair ended, this fair started! I will admit it has been tough, because they’re very long hours and I gotta restock and make things in whatever time is leftover. Or, you know, try to work when I’m *at* the fair and it’s not a very busy time (and if it’s not too windy).
One of the days, I didn’t have time to make myself lunch or a sandwich and the usual vendors that show up daily to sell us food were nowhere in sight. As I was texting people to share my food troubles, one of my friends showed up on the way to a reunion just to bring me a sandwich and cookies. It was the sweetest thing!! I could feel the love~
Shortly after my friend gave me the food, my dear Abue (granny) showed up and brought me what she knows is one of my favorite summer dishes: porotos granados (it’s a Chilean bean-corn dish served hot). I had to make space in my belly to eat it haha because I HAD TO. So much love in my food that day. She also stayed for a few hours with me.
She got cold at some point and I gave her my scarf for her to wear. She looked so cool I took her photo, and after she left, I decided to draw her.
