Pedro: We are Business Partners

This woman is my teammate. She works doing housecleaning and I work outside doing patios or cobblestones. We have worked together and people like how she works and people like my work so that’s why we are associates.

Ésta mujer es mi socia. Ella trabaja haciendo aseo de casas, y yo trabajo afuera haciendo patios o adoquines. Hemos trabajado juntos y a la gente le gusta cómo ella trabaja, y también les gusta mi trabajo, así que por eso somos socios. 

Chino: Wearing the Vest

Well, maybe it could be about 5 years from now, with the future of my kids and my family assured, I could be coming back and give them their studies, all the way to college if possible, and then they can work on their own.

Cuando regrese de repente podría ser dentro de unos 5 años, ya con el futuro de mis hijos y de mi familia, poder apoyarles en lo que les pueda dar, los estudios, hasta que se gradúen y puedan defenderse solos.

Chino: I Knew What to Expect

So what is this?

Oh this is right here in El Comedor. We were coming in and this is where we were receiving the breakfast here and then after breakfast we would go back to groupoetta.

So, you already knew what it would be like here, you knew what to expect?

Yes, yes, today I knew what to expect and how to come here and how they are so welcoming with us and they give us breakfast and I know that there is the prayer and I was motivated to keep on going.

Chino: Where I Sleep

This is in la Roca, the shelter where we’re sleeping. That is where put out our mattresses and our blankets. There we are. Last night there were only about 12 of us.

Esto es en La Roca, el albergue donde estamos durmiento. Allí es donde ponemos los colchones y las cobijas. Anoche eramos sólo como doce que dormimos allí.

Chino: The Church Brothers Giving Us Food

How does it feel to come here and get breakfast and then go there and get lunch? How does it feel?

Well it is really good because we get a lot of people supporting us and helping us. It is really good to have good help of food and other things. So here they are serving. These are the brothers of the church. The one that has the red shirt he’s the minister, the Pastor, and then others are the ones helping and they are serving the soup for us. So the picture before is of the line-up and here they are serving us the soup. There’s more serving and here there’s…

Chino: The Line-Up

We’re waiting for these brothers from church, they bring us soup at noon… It feels good because we get a lot of people supporting us.

Estamos esperando a estos hermanos de la iglesia, nos traen sopa a medio día... se siente bien porque hay muchas personas que nos están apoyando.

Chino: Beta's Truck

And this one here, that is the truck of the Beta Group. They take us and they drive us in this truck. So this picture was taken by another Catracho.

So what do you think? People are going to think there are only people from Honduras here.

Oh yes, but they’re only 5 of us here. Nice truck they have, don’t they? That is a really nice truck.
