On our field trip, some of us stopped at replica Colonia, a rural town on the border of Mexico and the U.S.. We learned about their housing, which was small, shabby, and not made on a good foundation. We were going to have a meal, but getting our meal wasn’t as easy as it is here. First some of us had to collect wood for our fire, then we made a teepee structure of the wood around some newspaper, and started to create the fire. While we were creating the fire, some other kids in our group were chopping the vegetables and making a mix of tomatoes, bell peppers, onions, and black beans. Before we could even started cooking, the fire went out. We had to start over and make a new fire. A couple of us kept the fire going and the others cooked the food. Finally our meal was ready. We ate our meal, and nearly all of us thought it tasted great.
