mexico I was born there and sometimes I fell really bad because I miss my beautiful and dear mexico so

Tito: Dear Nallely, I know exactly how you feel. When I first moved away from Mexico, I missed
it very much. But it helped me a lot to talk to my family about it. Abuela and I sat together and look
at pictures of my old neighborhood and my cousins who still live in Mexico. We remembered lots of funny
stories together and laughed a lot! And when I was sad, my mom cooked her famous caldo de pollo (chicken
soup) for me which made me feel even better.
