Ojo: The "Cholo Word Of The Day" is simply for fun. This is not an academic exercise, therefore I do not spend much time checking for espelling or grammatical errors. Most of the words are not only used by "cholos," but by many people in S. Texas - and their usage can vary. c/s

A La Iglesia

It's picture Friday. I've only had one other of these, but I'll still call it picture Friday.

I took this picture with the room completely dark. I was sitting in the corner while my grandmother was getting ready to go to church.



The altar set up for my late grandfather is behind her. For a long time, my grandmother refused to sleep where she and my grandfather used to sleep. There's a picture of the virgen and underneath you can see the picture of my grandfather.

The doorway on the left hand side of the room had only been there for a week or so. It's the new bathroom! Up until a couple of weeks before that, my grandmother still had to get water from her well, heat it up on the stove, and mix and match, if she wanted to take a shower. Oh, the door didn't fit the doorway, so that's why it's off to the side.
