I went over to the restaurant and the whole family was in there cooking breakfast, in no time someone handed me a plate and a cup of coffee. After breakfast I walked with Fabri and Omar to the school ...

    ... and I recorded their responses. I still have much work ahead of me to transcribe then translate the responses from my recordings and of course many more surveys and interviews to do.
