Home Improvements


This is my host dad. He turned 79 about two weeks ago and is incredibly active. He likes to walk for an hour in the mornings, does exercise routines in front of the tv, and is always working and doing something until the soccer games come on. Yesterday morning as I left to go to the colegio, I saw him dragging these long wooden poles that he had just chopped down by himself, only to come back that afternoon to find frame built onto the side of the patio. Today I came home to the finished product. 

The man wastes no time in getting things done! When he wants more shade for the patio, more shade is what we get. I hope I have even just a tiny bit of his stamina when I’m his age!
