    I’m always worried, but her heritage was not something I was worried about. Her stay in Europe, especially because it’s so far away, is something we don’t hear about very often among other Latin@s. It’s just something that doesn’t happen very often.

    I was worried but at the same time I hoped she was having a good time and exploring the country. Also I wonder what she was up to and just how she was adjusting to life in Spain and whether she was happy. It is hard not to worry about her safety and health, but we e-mailed constantly so that put me at ease because I heard from her regularly.

    What will she bring me? But seriously, I was a little scared about terrorist attacks taking place over there.
