Two Differences (guest post by Macy)

I want to talk about the big differences that there are between the United States and Congo. I like to be in Congo because I go to a very nice school that I’ve been in for 5 years and I can speak French (although, this year I will be changing schools). I have lots of friends at my school. I have a best friend and her name is Jessica. But, I also have another best friend, who does homeschool, and her name is Grace. Sometimes, I like to go shopping with my Mom or Dad at the grocery store and little markets where we buy fruits and vegetables. In both places, I play with my brother Connor, although in Congo, I don’t have to share a room with him (thankfully).

I like to go and eat at Panda Express while we’re in the United States. I also like to go to Mexican food restaurants and eat enchiladas, chips and salsa, and warm tortillas (flour, not corn). While in Congo, we mostly eat sandwiches, chicken, rice and fresh vegetables. I enjoy getting to see my grandparents and cousins. People notice me less and I can fade into the background easier in the States, too. However, I do not like the automatic toilets, because it flushes on you and I can’t get away fast enough.

When we’re visiting the United States, I enjoy that church isn’t as long as it is in Congo (it’s usually 3 hours long). I enjoy going to Children’s Church and that it’s in English, my first language. In Lubumbashi, it’s mostly in Swahili or sometimes French. But, one thing I like about church in Congo is that choirs of girls, women or boys sing and dance up front.

What I also like about living in Congo is that we have four dogs, two males and two females. We have two German Shepherds, a Great Dane and a dog that is a mix of some kind. Their names are Nala, Bowser, Jupiter and Samson. We’ve also had different sets of puppies that we like to play with.

Thank you for reading my blog. I hope you found it educational and funny.
